Jimmy Carbone is joined in the studio by guest co-host Jen Schwertman, and honored specialty beer rep Mike Lovullo.

Hear from Lanny Hoff of Artisanal imports; what beers does Lanny bring into the country? Hear what beer cities Lanny visits regularly, and why Cleveland is pioneering American beer culture. Later, hear the cast talk about some of their favorite German beers! Tune into this episode to hear about the beer festivals you should attend this summer!
