Dundee Brewing was kind enough to send us a sample of three of their beers allowing us to participate in a “virtual tasting” that was held using an online video chat along with a dial in conference call. the first question of the day was “can you see me on this video call?” which is pretty funny considering nobody had sampled any of the beers yet.

Motor has two favorite beers that he will defend to the end. one of them is Ruby from McMenamins.
Anchor Brewing got sold. The sky is not going to fall.
this is the long though lost IPA show. it was recorded last fall on August 23.
Numerous blind tasting panels (where beer is poured into identical glasses out of site of the judges so judges don’t know what brand or what package the beer came from) have proven that beer from cans is indistinguishable from beer from any other package.
