Episode 9 - Show Notes 

On time again! I'm not sure how, but nor am I questioning it! You've hopefully noticed a heap more posts from The Year of Local - I've been doing my best, getting out to more new breweries as often as I can! There are a heap more in planning that intend to open this year... Hopefully some of them run into delays as I'm struggling to get to all of them as it is! Anyway, more on that later in 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 the news segment was relatively short - as everyone begins their winter hibernation. We talked about a number of visits to breweries for The Year of Local segment, added lagers from three different continents to our growing Ranking of Lagers table & discussed big black beers - any type of Imperial Stout you can imagine - for our Dessert Island 6-Pack (what a dessert island that would be!) We finished with a cellar beer that we bought together as part of Carwyn Cellars' pre-Good Beer Week sale. Hope you enjoy the episode!
