Part 2 of my conversation with special guest Ben Amirault as we discuss the growth of craft beer. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Mission of Burma, Father John Misty, Hallelujah the Hills and The Men.

Show notes:

- Check out Ben's beer blog The Church Key

- Dogfish Head has branched out with TV show, limited edition beers

- Northeast has many great brewers: Magic Hat, Smuttynose, Baxter, Long Trail

- "Ice beer" was, and still is, a thing

- Regional pockets of great craft beer throughout the U.S.

- Some of beers can overdo it with the accents (fruit, pumpkin, caramel, chocolate, coffee, etc.)

- Jay: Not big into pairing certain beers with certain types of food

- Canadians will drink Bud or Coors because it's so light

- Ben: Hard to keep up with all the new brewers

- Recent trend is putting craft beer in cans

- Some brewers won't do it, but many are: Sierra Nevada, Harpoon, Oskar Blues, Baxter

- Great packaging can get you to try a beer

- The bomber is a great way to check out a new beer

- Some stores let you "make" your own six-pack from singles

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Mission of Burma - Dust Devil

Father John Misty - Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings

Hallelujah the Hills - Hungry Ghost Extraordinaire

The Men - Open Your Heart
