Ep. 2 License to Pils

This week Ed Grohl, Easy Pretzel, and Bearcat are joined by special guest Jason Notte to discuss why Twitter thinks Jason hates Pilsners, the end of Kumbaya in craft beer, the decline of seasonal offerings and ugly ass publicly funded stadiums.

A very special thanks to Jason for taking the time to come on the show. Be sure to read Jason’s work at both MarketWatch.com and TheStreet.com and follow his prolific and eclectic twitter feed @Notteham.
