This week on Beer Sessions Radio, host Jimmy Carbone welcomes Matt Monahan and Sam Richardson from Other Half NYC, as well as Niko Krommydas to the studio. Sam and Mike tell us about how they got into craft beer and what led them to start Other Half Brewing Company. After the break, Brady Lowe calls in and tells us about the Cochon 555 tour, which is coming to NYC next Sunday, January 26th. Later on, the group discusses the classifications of a Cascadian Dark Ale and a Black IPA. Are they in fact different beers, or rather different names for the same thing? Tune in to find out!
