Episode 427 – Hot Drops, Part Deux!
As if the Chicago shelves couldn’t be more saturated with tantalizing options, a whole new round of hot drops has hit recently that got us out to the bottle shops to see if they’ll take valuable fridge space away from our local faves. We have five very different beers from some notable out-of-state breweries – and we have our first ever D.O.A. Hot Drop. Also, Ryan is living with the horror of a room centipede, Craig’s working through some hop anger, and we both are titillated by The Burden of Stout. Hallelujah, it’s raining DSW gift cards.
