Jimmy Carbone is joined by some familiar faces this week on Beer Sessions Radio! Jen Schwertman of The Blind Tiger is back in the studio after her trip to Denver, Colorado for the Great American Beer Festival. Jen reports back from the festival, and tastes the Danny Williams memorial porter that was distributed at the event. Brian Ewing from 12 Percent Imports joins the crew to talk about bringing small, European brews to the New World. Mark Burford and Curt Potter from Blue Point Brewing Company are also in the house to share their Toxic Sludge Black IPA and their White IPA. Hear about the burgeoning IPA variations, and listen in to hear some of Mark’s signature wild adolescent stories. Tune into this episode to learn more about canned beer: mobile canning, the benefits of canning, and the future of canning for craft breweries. This episode has been brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

“There are so many young, talented brewers that have a global perspective. They’ve got access to all the great things that are going on in America, they’ve got access to all the stuff that’s going on Europe, and they’re pushing boundaries just like breweries in the United States are.” [9:05] — Brian Ewing on Beer Sessions Radio

“Every beer that you try as a brewery, you learn something about what the brewers were trying to do. There’s something there that you can really put in your brain that becomes the whole matrix of your recipes and where your new beers come from.” [20:00] — Mark Burford on Beer Sessions Radio
