On Episode 2 of Barley & Me, host Ben Rice chats with comedian Kim Martel (also of the bad beer blog HEY MARTEL!), as well as American River Brewing's owner Dave Mathis and head brewer Andy Armstrong. We talk about ARBC's recent 3rd place finish at the California State Fair Commercial Beer Festival, utilizing their flagship Coloma Brown, as well as their thoughts on the future of their brewery and specialty releases coming soon. We get a bit silly as we discuss Boner Beer and American River's special barrel aged series, Morning Wood. We're all adults here. It's a totally mature discussion. Plus reviews and information about Canadian craft cocktails, midwestern breweries, and Vermont in general. Plus a taste and review of American River's Capitol Copper and Lawn Jockey Session IPA.This and so much more, on Episode 2 of Barley and Me! Give it a listen.
