With January nipping our noses outside, Warren and Matt stayed warm drinking  barrel-aged beer at Gnarly Brews Tap Room and Bottle Shop in Phillipsburg, NJ. Gnarly Brews is a family-run business with a passion for serving the best craft beers around. Ray from Gnarly’s poured a flight of some superlative beers:

Freewill Bonesaw, pinot noir barrel barleywine
Angry Erik Dragon Booty, bourbon barrel porter
Angry Erik Vanagandr, bourbon barrel brown ale
Clown Shoes Rexx, bourbon barrel imperial red

Also in this episode, Warren, Matt, and Ray explored the recent spate of craft brewery acquisitions by mainstream players like Anheuser Busch-Inbev, Heineken, Constellation, and MillerCoors. Ray conveyed his struggle to stay true to his vision of serving only “craft” beers given these market dynamics.
