  • Stone Spotlight Series: Spröcketbier

    Apr 16, 2014 | 28 min
    So who is Rick Blankemeier and why is he so afraid of Godzilla? Well I can't give you an answer to the second part, but for the first half Rick is half of Team Spröcket. Rick and his partner Robbie Chandle both work for Stone Brewing Co and are the winners of the Stone Spotlight Series. A competition that pitted teams of Stone Brewing Co employees in a brewing competition where the prize was national distribution of the winning beer to the 41 states Stone Brewing Company currently delivers their beer. Team Spröcket won the competition with their Spröcketbier, which is a black rye Kölsch. You will find this beer at a bottle shop near you starting April 21st.
  • Beer for the People

    Apr 10, 2014 | 66 min
    The 54th episode of The Ohio Beercast has Darrell roping Chris of Queen City Fresh into joining him at the mic for the usual beer roundup episode. Again we find beer dancing in the political arena with trickles of news coming out about the new ABV proposal, a sin tax rebellion taking place in Cuyahoga County and Kasich touting himself as a pro beer politician. We also drop some knowledge bombs and thoughts on the areas of defining craft beer, new FDA standards around the corner and of course births, expansions and anniversaries. Get that beer, find that seat, grab a hold and hang on tight because the Ohio Beercast is here to rattle your brain.
