Episode 53 – In the Barrel with the Bills

On this week's episode, we sit down and look at the world of trademarks and lawsuits involving some of the biggest and smallest breweries, pay to play in the barroom and the most British pub story, ever. Then we dive into a wonderful presentation from lambic master Frank Boon and the BA's newly announced hop breeding program before Drew sits down with “Doctor” Bill Sysak and Bill Sobeiski at the newly (30 days is new right?) opened Wild Barrel Brewing of San Marcos. Find out their long beer history and how they moved from Stone to a place of their own. And then of course, we hammer out some questions – including what do you think – should you be required to create your own recipe for competition? Then a quick tip and a super something other to get you set for your week.
