Panel Introductions (30 minutes)

No intro for Jim

A finalist in the 2013 Wine Blog Awards, a certified California Sustainable Winegrowing Ambassador, and the founder of the stay rad wine blog. Be on the lookout for his upcoming post, “Pairing Wine with Bad Haircuts”... Jeff “The King of All Wine Media” Solomon! Jeff is drinking Cornerstone Cellars 2012 Napa Valley Merlot Oakville Station Vineyard (To Kalon). It’s 100% Merlot. It’s $75.

He’s a member of the American Homebrewers Association and soon to be commercial brewer who keep trying to pay everyone in colons...John Ruyak. John is drinking Pacific Rim Gewurztraminer

I’m the other Jeff on the show, a certified specialist of wine, who keeps telling people whatever they are doing is totally on fleek… and tonight I’m drinking the 2012 Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon

Our guest tonight ...Dan Rivette with Barrel Backers is a former Army guy turned entrepreneur that is miraculously joining us tonight from Montana (Yes - the internet did make it up there just a few short weeks ago…) With a glass of Kettlehouse Brewing’s Cold Smoke Scotch Ale in hand tonight, he’s excited to talk about a new way to discover America’s craft beers.

Booze News - Where we discuss interesting, note-worthy, or idiotic stories. (15 minutes)

Jeff S - Did Wine Folly just suggest that people get free wine tasting by handing out fake business cards? http://winefolly.com/update/go-wine-tasting-like-a-pro/

Ask The Panel - Where you get to ask us a question about wine or beer. If you have a question you want answered just email us at [email protected]. If we read your question on the air you’ll get some cool WLD SWAG. (10 Minutes)

Brad from Swankville asks, “How do breweries like Stone and Ballast Point justify their price? Is it a supply vs demand type of thing? Is it just because they can? What’s the fuckin’ deal, dog?”

What’s Cool or New for You? Basically anything else you wish to talk about.(5 minutes)

Dan - I am totally excited about drafttop.com - Basically a tool that completely removes the top of a 8oz to 16oz beer can and turns it essentially into a “glass.” They are not available yet but I think the team there is definitely on to something great!

The Crystal Ball - The segment where we selfishly promote what we’re working on (5 minutes)

Jeff S - I reviewed some sparkling pink wine on WLD this week. Be sure to check it out. New wine videos are slowly making their way to Stay Rad Wine Blog dot Com… Stay tuned.

John - Finding room in my suitcase for odds and ends going to Costa Rica

Jeff E. - Look for my article next week where I’ll be taking a look at another delivery service, this time with a focus on wine instead of beer.

Dan - Ultimately, we’re working on getting more people to tell us which beers they want to see featured on Barrel Backers. We’re excited to have a place where people can drive the conversation and call the shots on the beers they want to experience! Audience PROMO code: welikedrinking

Last call - Time to clean house and lock the doors (10 minutes)
