Beer Sessions gets into the holiday spirit by breaking into some vintage beers, including beers from friend and late co-host, Ray Deter’s collection. Joined by Tom Peters (Monk’s Cafe), Mike Battaglia (Total Beverage Solutions), and Ed Berestecki (Mugs Ale House), Jimmy Carbone breaks into old school Thomas Hardy, Traquarhouse and George Gale beers. Later on the show, a friend from across the pond calls in; Jon Bexon, head brewer at Green King Brewers in Suffolk, England whose “Old Crafty Hen” won the 2010 Grande Monde Medal. The group talks vintaging techniques, blending and aging, and the criteria for a good session beer. This episode is sponsored by GreatBrewers.com.
