The beer, the myth, the legend, Cantillon Classic Gueuze!

After a multi-week “vacation” away from the show for work purposes, Drew returns, and the Ale Evangelists celebrate by cracking open a rare bottle from Cantillon, a Belgian brewery renowned for their production of the sour style, Gueuze. Does it live up to the hype?

They also discussed the relatively recent trend of layoffs at craft breweries. Why is this happening, and is this another sign of The End of Craft Beer?

Gose and Blood Orange Gose. Nice, refreshing beers for these hot, fall days.

Gose and Blood Orange Gose. Nice, refreshing beers for these hot, fall days.

These days, it seems like every other day is filled with the news of Annheuser Busch acquiring yet another entity. They are the Borg of Beer these days. No Craft Brewery or Massive Brewing Conglomerate is safe.

But is the sky really falling? Is the craft beer empire being taken over, brewery by brewery, never to rise again? Will BevMos carry nothing but fizzy, yellow swill. In this episode the Scotsman, flying solo, pontificates upon the nature of craft beer, and how we can never return to the “dark ages of beer.”

Today, in the information age, fine craft beer is at your fingertips, and you’ll never have to settle for less again. But has ABInBev gotten too big for its britches?

The Scotsman also covers a new story about the Justice Department investigating AB’s business practices. All that and the Scotsman tries some new Gose beers from Anderson Valley Brewing on the Ale Evangelist Show!
