Episode 423 – Grape Expectations
We don’t always have the best luck with fruit feature shows, so we hand our expectations over to some of our most trusted local brewers to give grapes a chance. All five bottles on this show feature unique grapes from the rest, so Craig schools us off the vine. Also, we have a therapeutic conversation about grocery stores, discuss how EastSide Gushy Got Chonked (Vol. 1), perform Nerds Box-to-mouth, admire the bold dismantling of a rotisserie chicken, and learn some new words.
