Independent Distilling and Richland Rum - Episode 46 - 11/12/16
By Beer Guys Media LLC
At the Beer Guys Radio Show, we love our craft beer. But once in a while, we like to break the mold a bit. And that's what we did this week. We talk distilling - whiskey and rum to be specific. Erik Vonk from Savannah's Richland Rum joined us, as did Michael Anderson from Decatur's Independent Distilling. Craft beer and craft distilling has many things in common, and we talk to Erik and Michael about that, including how they got their start in distilling. Also the vagaries involved in barrel aging, and the importance of keeping their ingredients local. Truck and Tap's Beers of the Week Of course, we had beers of the week, including: A flight of Terrapin's Wake and Bake Coffee Stout from 2015 and 2016. We also got to try Independent Distilling's Outlier #1, a whiskey made from a Scotch Ale mash courtesy of Blue Tarp Brewing. Headlines (sponsored by Your Pie Perimeter): Oconee County votes yes on Sunday alcohol sales. Groundbreaking on new Albany brewery What to bring? Wine and beer for a party Dogfish Head getting into the can game Hurd delivers vinyl and beer. Unfortunately only in the UK for now. Coming up next week? Back to the craft beer. We'll be talking to the crew from Gate City Brewing Company. Drink local, and CHEERS!
