For each episode, Augie and John will blind-taste and dissect two beers on air (provided by that episode’s guest) while discussing current beer topics, news, and styles.
GOOD BEER HUNTING

Every week, John Rubio and his co-hosts Grant Davis, Anastacia Kelly, and Mike Lambert, meet to taste, discuss, and judge five different beers from all over the world.
