On this special Cinco De Mayo episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the guys talk about the history of Cinco De Mayo (both real and imagined).

They try some tasty (if lightly aged) beers from Strike Brewing Company in San Jose. (Many thanks to Jenny Lewis for providing the beers, and much apologies for not getting to them as quickly as we’d hoped!)

The guys also have a PACKED beer calendar, filled with mockery as you have come to expect. (Really Berkeley Humane Society? Picture of a dog licking inside a woman’s mouth??)

All of this beery goodness on a Cinco De Mayo holiday episode of the Ale Evangelist Show!

Also in this longer-than-normal episode, the guys introduce you to a new “everyman” guest, Whitey. Whitey is a bud-drinking lover of craft beer, who brings an element to the show that you will really enjoy. They all had a great time talking about a potentially sad subject, the sale

of Ballast Point to Constellation Brands. Is this just another episode in the End of Craft Beer, or do we just have to accept that the only constant is change?
