Ed and Bearcat (AKA: Billy Five Caps) are back. It’s a new show… No edits. No guests. No script.

We nearly killed the show. But… thanks to Ed, we are going to hold it together as best we can.

Cheers!

Ep 27: Selling Out

In Episode 27, Ed Grohl and Bearcat drink a few Troegs beers and discuss recent news in craft beer; mostly the sale of Dogfish Head to Sam Adams parent company Boston Beer Company. No links… this time around and about as free flowing a conversation as we have ever had on the show.

Ep. 26 – The 2019 717 Collab Beer for HBW

In Episode 26, Ed Grohl and Bearcat were kindly invited to join the Harrisburg Beer Week team and all the brewery collaborators on the 2019 717 Collab Beer brew day at Tröegs. As the brew was working it’s way to the fermentation tank, Ed and Bearcat sat down with each brewer and finally with the Harrisburg Beer Week team. We discussed the process of collaboration, Harrisburg as a “beer town,” this year’s very cool logo, and why 717 is not just a good beer but #BeerForGood.

Be sure to follow Harrisburg Beer Week on Twitter, Instagram, and check out all the events during the week.

This is a long episode, but we covered a lot of ground about each of the four breweries, the process of making this year’s collaboration beer, and about Harrisburg Beer Week. We hope you like listening to it as much as we liked making it.
