    This week's episode is a pubcast - as such, listener discretion is advised.  There are a few eff bombs, and we are podcasting from a pub discussing adult beverages, so use your judgement when choosing to listen. 

    We discuss the documentary Beer Wars, which discusses how microbrews are fighting for space on shelves with the Big Three (Budweiser, Miller, Coors) in the USA.  We also discuss other trivia, so pull your favourite pint (or other beverage) and tune in!
