Barley & Me

Episode 98: Sacramento Pink Boots Society at Capital Hop Shop

April 15, 2019

Ben Rice sits down with Angel Sepulveda (Flatland), Ashley Schafer (Sufferfest/Sierra Nevada), Alyssa Steger (Crooked Lane), and Rebecca Steele-Wilkie (Cuvee Marketing) of the Sacramento chapter of the Pink Boots Society to discuss Pink Boots, their collaboration beers and subsequent tap takeovers, entering the beer industry, and favorite starter beers. Plus we dig deep on ingredient selection, AB-InBev/MillerCoors pettiness, how beer names and colors can affect opinions, and what your dreams can tell you about your feelings about your jobs. Plus! How to survive UC Davis Picnic Day, Prohibition's chances in a social media world, and the worst (and best) Thanksgiving pies, with a little mob boss talk sprinkled in. All this and more, on episode 98 of Barley & Me. Enjoy!
