We’re celebrating America and heritage breweries on this week’s edition of Beer Sessions Radio! Jimmy Carbone is joined in the studio by Sam Barbieri, owner of Waterfront Ale House. Sam brings some vintage beers on the show to taste, and talks about the upcoming beer festival on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn. James Watt and Martin Dickie of Brew Dog stop by to talk about the Scottish beer scene, their love of American craft brews, and how their beers challenge people in the U.K. to rethink beer. Will Gordon stops by to promote the classic Massachusetts lager, and Don Russell (better known as Joe Sixpack) calls in to talk about classic American breweries who have defined beer in the U.S.A. for centuries. You don’t want to miss this episode of Beer Sessions Radio! Thanks to our sponsor, GreatBrewers.com. Music provided by The Hollows.

“We got a lot of inspiration from America, and a lot of inspiration the sour Belgian beers. The only way we could drink the beer that we liked was to make it ourselves.” [7:15]
