Episode 295 - Josh Noel, author of Barrel-Aged Stout and Selling Out
Happy Monday, Thieves! If you tuned into our show with Ryan Scott of Odd 13 last week, you'll recall Justin played a rather mean trick on Augie, John, and Ryan by putting a "Christmas IPA" from ABI/Goose Island in the second black glass. That beer's barely-drinkable nature prompted us to wonder aloud whether we should get Josh Noel on the show. Josh literally wrote the book on Goose Island—BARREL-AGED STOUT AND SELLING OUT: GOOSE ISLAND, ANHEUSER-BUSCH AND HOW CRAFT BEER BECAME BIG BUSINESS—focusing on the eventual AB acquisition of that company, so we wanted to talk to him about what the hell we just tasted. So we called him up and got him to join this week. Tune in and you'll hear us discuss the journey that lead Goose from a small Chicago brewpub all the way to that repulsive Christmas beer we sampled last week. Tune in and let us know what you think!
