PODCAST | In this surprisingly-serious episode, at least for the first part, we explore the issue of breweries being taken over by other, bigger breweries and other brewery-like companies, and try to look at it from the perspective of both the brewer and the drinker. And then to balance it out, we laugh at some of the best Untappd comments we’ve read in a long time, and reveal the lengths that people in São Paulo went to get an Australian beer.

And if that wasn’t enough, we talk about the Adelaide craft beer scene and the emergence of Star Wars-themed beers in all their glory.

Note: Chris didn’t quite get the episode number right, but he claims to have fixed it in post-production. See if you can notice.
