This week on Beer Sessions, Jimmy & Ray host a loosely themed "Mardi Gras" show. Ray talks a bit about the Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans and what made him open a bar down there and explains why craft beer and Mardi Gras are not a match made in heaven. Later on the show, Shane Welch and Jeff Gorlechen from Sixpoint Craft Ales stop by to preview the upcoming Beer For Beasts event. The Barrier Brewing Company guys also stopped by to explain why their garage brewery in Long Island isn't so different from the big guys.
