S11E05: “If You’re Making Rum Ham, You Don’t Need Expensive Rum”

PODCAST | In this burning, cobbled-together, ramshackle episode, we talk about: the emergence of craft distilleries; a visit to a city bar that have barley wine on tap; and the advent of April fools gags and, with that, the thought of rum-ham beer. We also discuss a divisive beer and talk about whether it got our attention because of what it was, or simply how it was presented. Or both. The answers won’t surprise you.

Finally, we drink the brand-new limited-release Night Market NEIPA from Hop Nation, a chili-heavy version of our collaboration beer, the Market NEIPA. It’s a different, and very burp-friendly journey.

Featured beers: Night Market by Hop Nation Brewing Co. and Lickable Wallpaper Raspberry Rhubarb Sour by Barrow Boys Brewing.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
