August 24, 2015

On Episode 4 of Barley & Me, host Ben Rice speaks with Sacramento writer and cartoon creator Eben Burgoon (B Squad, Eben07) about his comics, his efforts in teaching children about art and writing through charity program 916INK, and more, while sipping on and reviewing beers in the face of New Helvetia Brewing's owner, Dave Gull. Dave also chimes in with stories about his beer's history, the history of Sacramento, and the wonders of winning gold at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival. Plus, how to lager without a proper lagering tank, more community outreach, and our combined lifelong dream of having a Sacramento BASEketball league. Plus so incredibly much more! Give it a listen!
