Barley & Me

Episode 52: Brewery Closings & Sales w/ Dan Scott, Capital Beer & Taproom’s Peter Halldorf, and YOLO Brewing’s David Weiss

August 27, 2017

Host Ben Rice sits down with beer know-it-all Dan Scott, Capital Beer and Taproom's Peter Halldorf, and YOLO Brewing's David Weiss to discuss the recent closings of Rubicon and American River Brewing Companies, plus tell their favorite stories about experiences with these breweries. We touch a little bit on causation, but this episode is about celebrating the time they were with us and our hopes for the future, should a buyer come about. Plus Ben talks about how much of an asshole he used to be and why a famous comedian blocked him on Twitter. Listen to the end for a (possibly inaccurate) tip about some upcoming beer bars, as well!

Thanks for listening.
