Disclaimer: Explicit! We talk about some weird stuff too, so please know that this is all in good fun and we love everyone, especially our guest! WDB: The Lost files! Katie & Cathy sat down for a fun evening with Lucia, a sales rep for Sociable Cider Werks back in February right before Mardi Gras.  Since then Katie procrastinated, then the file was lost, then it was corrupted, then every time she tried to edit it, the file would corrupt again.  So here it is, in all it's glory, a 2.5 hour interview where we cover Beef with our sister podcast Drink In Geek Out, where Gordon Ramsey can put his beef (definitely in our lasagna) and of course how awesome Lucia is and her cidery home.
Episode 34: WarPigs

MKE Brewing Co (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is on the table this week.  Katie and Cathy try Outboard, O-Gii, MKE IPA, and Hop Freak. Need a refresher on what our color scale means?  This is also a good episode to listen to for that. Katie and especially Cathy suffer for you by turning off the AC for a cleaner recording, forcing the apartment to be very hot.  Which turned out to be in the beer’s benefit as they taste very refreshing in the heat. Listen to this episode and try these beers in summer!
What do frozen things do in summer?  With the arrival of summer comes a lot of beers that are only brewed in summer.  Join Katie and Cathy as they sample four beers that are awesome and fruity and oh so delicious.  This week’s beer includes: Hell or High Watermelon (21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco, CA), Mango Blonde (Lift Bridge Brewery in Stillwater MN), Blu Grain Belt, (Grain Belt / Shells in New Ulm, MN) and Short Pants Summer Shandy (BauHaus Brew Labs in Minneapolis, MN).  So find a patio, find some friends, and try these wonderful beers.

Katie and Cathy find the best of all worlds!  In this interview with Annie, owner of Forager Brewery (Rochester, MN) is a brew pub where everything in the tap room is all old foraged things.  Forager is clearly a love letter to Rochester and Katie and Cathy couldn’t stop gushing about the beer, (including the IPA!) and the tap room.
