Episode 8 - Show Notes 

This is a pretty timely episode for us, it's only been about 3 weeks since our last one went live. The last few weeks I've spent quite a bit of time dealing with The Year of Local stuff, visiting a lot of regional breweries. It's now about getting some writing done... Anyway about the podcast!

We're going to rotate some segments in and out, especially early on while we get into the swing of things - so if there is anything you love or hate, please let us know! The idea at the moment is that the podcast will be (roughly) monthly, and we'll try and keep that pretty regular - at least more so than I've kept the blog up to date recently... Basically every month we'll discuss some of the latest news from the beer world, we'll talk about some beers that we've been enjoying over the last month & we'll crack something interesting from my cellar.

This month were continuing our Ranking of Lagers from around the world as well as discussing a plethora of news from around the beer world. We combined our Good Beer Week review with the Desert Island 6-Pack segment, which I think worked reasonably well. Hope you guys enjoy the episode.
