In a Wild Heaven, There's a Cigar City

By Beer Guys Media LLC

We took the show on the road this week.  All the way out to Avondale Estates to the home of Wild Heaven Craft Beers.  The folks there were busy, you see. They were brewing a collaboration with a little place from Florida called Cigar City.  So we were able to interview two amazing brewers at once - Wild Heaven's Eric Johnson and Cigar City's Wayne Wambles.  We talk about Eric's non traditional entry into brewing, Wild Heaven's move to canning, and many more things...including what he and Wayne are cooking up! We'll also learn about the success of Emergency Drinking Beer and crack open a special sour that's in the works. Truck and Tap's Beers of the week included Wild Heaven's Autumn Defense, and a surprise from across the pond. Wayne and the Cigar City crew have spent the last several months traveling around the world, collaborating with brewers. One of their collabs happened to be with Ireland's Galway Bay Brewery, home of friend of the show Wil Avery. We sampled the result - Phaethon IPA - and gave Wayne his first taste as well!  In the headlines (sponsored by Your Pie - Perimeter), we talk about Atlanta's newest planned brewpub, headed by former Stone Brewing brewmaster Mitch Steele. Also, Tim talked to Nick Hudson from Albama's Free the Hops, and has an update on the proposed regulations regarding to-go brewery sales.  Don't forget to subscribe to the podcast (and leave a review!). Coming up next week, we'll have Cherry Street Brewing Co-Op's Nick Tanner. We'll be on the socials all week long, and we'd love to have you join us.   Cheers, and DRINK LOCAL
