Episode 51: Caffeine Addicts

Hello and welcome to the 51st episode of the Blind Tiger Podcast recorded on March 31st, 2015. In this episode Mike, Jesse, and myself gathered in our studio to consume the greatest drug left legally purchased (without a prescription) in the good old United States of America; caffeine.

But before we get let the caffeine jitters take over our voices start quivering we need to answer our opening question of the week: "If you were to add another caffeinated beverage to a beer what would it be and why?"

Point/Counterpoint - Beer is Sexy(st)?

Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout Beer SweetWater Brewing Company recently was distributing to Chicago. One particular distributor has decided to refused to stock SweetWater's Happy Ending Imperial Stout over calls that its label + name are sexist if not borderline racist. Is the craft beer scene not just a "boys club" but delving into the world of misogyny?

It is a hard topic to wade through but the Blind Tiger Podcast doesn't turn away from a challenge. What we do know is that the distributor has a right to deny any beer they want for any reason they want. And customers have a right to buy the beer they want for whatever reason they want. (So long as it is legal.)

But does this one example illustrate an industry problem? Or even a brewery problem? Listen and add your two cents to the comments below.
