Beer is simple - just water, barley, hops and yeast, right? These days, breweries are adding all kinds of stuff to their beer, from fruit and spices all the way through candy and breakfast cereal. Roger leads the Barrel to Bottle crew through an epic tour and blind tasting across the spectrum of adjuncts in beer.

Barrel to Bottle Episode 46: California Wine with Benziger and ConcannonPosted: August 06, 2018|
This week on Barrel to Bottle, Kristen and Greg sit down with two VIPs of California wine, Chris Benziger and John Concannon. Chris Benziger carries the tradition of his family's winery into the next generation, with all of Benziger's releases certified sustainable, organic or biodynamic. John Concannon is an advocate for environmental stewardship and sustainability. As a fourth generation vintner, he is hoping for a future as bright as his family's rich legacy: from bottling the first petite sirah in 1961, to importing key cab clones from Chateau Margaux in 1893 that is now found throughout California. Plus, Chris and John stick around to help with this week's customer Q&A about wine in cans.
National IPA Day 2018Posted: August 01, 2018|Categories: Beer
In the world of craft beer, IPA is king. At last year’s Great American Beer Festival, the number of American-Style IPA submissions dwarfed all others at 408 entries! A Chicagoland brewery took home gold BTW… Today we celebrate India Pale Ale – a once nearly forgotten British style that America made its own. From soft and hazy NEIPA, to bracingly bitter West Coast DIPAs, this forever evolving style comes in many shapes and sizes. The Binny’s Beer team tastes its way through a sea of IPA - here are a few of our favorites.
