This week I sat down with the voice of Cincy Beer, The Gnarly Gnome and we talked about a number of topics. The Gnome gave us a taste of what is happening in Cincinnati craft beer including the recent Bockfest, the 50 West expansion, and the sale of Listermann Brewing Company.  We also talked about craft beer expansion in Ohio, the rising prices being seen at the tap, and what is necessary for breweries to avoid a collapse. At the end of the show I introduced a new segment called The  Six pack of info where we get to know our guest from a non-beer centric perspective. During the interview we drank some fantastic beers including: 

West Side Brewing– DIPA 9.3% 

Listermann Brewing – Dry Irish Stout: 4.7% 

Alematic Artisan Ales and Esoteric Brewing Co. – All Black Everything Breakfast Stout 7.9% 

Urban Artifact – Beipiasaurus 7.8%
