Severed fingers in Michigan, edible beer packaging in Florida, Private Equity moves in Pittsburgh and craft beers for Disney. Pair these stories up with a beer from Seventh Son Brewing and what do you have? This week’s Chug, dumbass. Get after it.

The Chug is back and Mondays are you new day for beer news! Indiana, Lyft, Foo Fighters and burritos all flew under the beer news radar last week. Sam pairs these stories with a chug of Clementine Gose from Two Roads and talks to a local Indiana-ian about some upcoming changes. Come for the news, stay for the Chug.
Our first official guest of 2018 is none other than Zack from Chain Reaction Brewing Company. It’s a shortie, but a goodie. We talked about all the cool shit Chain Reaction has coming up at the brewery in the next few months and have a very quick recap of Zack and Sam’s experiences at the Big Beers Belgians and Barleywines festival that took place up in Breckenridge the first weekend in January. Dig your ears in and crack a beer. Fuck those New Year’s resolutions. Hassle us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Welcome to 2018! We ring in the new year with a very special one on one episode with a friend and fan of the show from Minneapolis. Sadly, Sam is not a scheduling wizard, so Pete was not able to attend, but our Guest Pyrate Mike was perfectly able to carry the show in his absence. Dude’s traveled many places and drank many beers and whiskeys, so we talk about that and how great Nic Cage is. Rate your Nic Cage movies to us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Happy Holidays from Beer n' Loathing. The Chug will return in 2018.
