(Forgive us, we’re still dialing in our brewery acoustics.) This week, we recorded at Wormtown Brewery with Director of Marketing Katrina Shabo. On February 25th, Chefs Brian Treitman and Bill Nemeroff of B.T.’s Smokehouse are teaming up for an intimate dining experience at Wormtown Brewery. Before opening one of New England’s most highly acclaimed barbecue spots in Sturbridge, Treitman worked closely with industry titans Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer in Boston. You can hear more from Nemeroff on episode 25 of Pop It.

We asked Katrina what she thought about the controversial article that blew up our beer news feeds this week, written by Brewing News publisher and co-founder Bill Metzger. Did you know, according to the Craft Brewers Association, 31.5% of craft beer drinkers in 2018 were women? We also discuss Per Se’s written appeal, Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday party, and Ryan Adams’ lethal Napoleon complex. (Height confirmed at 5’8″.) Tunes by Submarine Machine.
