Sam Calagione, the founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, broke some news on the Randall Jr. - BUT, he wasn't supposed to. So, we agreed to cut it out of the original interview and hold onto it until after their marketing department was ready to talk about it. Even though the news is already out, it is still a fun exchange worth watching. Check it out.

Great Lakes The Doppelrock | Chad'z Beer Reviews #649

I sent Chad Polenz some beers from Ohio and we did my first-ever Skype beer review collaboration video.

Chad writes: "Hey look who's joining me via Skype! James Knott of the Better Beer Authority! This is James' first-ever Skype collab review (and really his first ever actual review since he's the moderator on his show). He sent me this bottle as part of a trade we did recently and will be the first episode of "All Ohio Beer Week" here on this channel. It's been a long time since I've had a doppelbock, and Great Lakes tends to make some solid stuff, so how would their American take on this unique German style turn out? "

Terrapin Hopsecutioner - Blind Taste Test

I was really excited to try Hopsecutioner from the Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia. I lived in Georgia for a year and I'm always looking for good reasons to reconnect with my old stomping grounds. BUT, have you ever opened that Christmas present and the toy inside was broken? Find out why we "phone a friend" in this fun, slightly twisted episode of the Better Beer Authority.

Cigar City Jai Alai India Pale Ale - Blind Taste Test

I had heard great things about Cigar City, but couldn't try it because it's not available in Ohio. Boy was I excited when Richard Hartogs took a trip to Florida and secured some for us. We did a blind taste test, which is awesome because you don't go into the beer with any preconceived notions. Find out whether this beer lives up to the hype in this fun episode of the BBA. Thanks Richard!!!
