Alright all you malted barley snobs.  Here is part two of the interview Ryan and I did with Garrett Marrero of Maui Brewing Co. (in case you missed it).

 

Letters From Cuba: Beer and Socialism

Excerpt: No one expects to find any craft beer in a socialist country (something about suppressing the minds of the freethinkers), without a doubt everyone expects to find mass produced pale piss lager.  Why not?  Beer has been used as a tool of persuasion by the powerful over the ages to win people’s allegiance.  Beer built the pyramids in Egypt.  All the pharaohs had to do was promise the workers enough beer and no one seemed to care that they were working all day in the blistering sun, dragging monolithic stones across the desert.  The church used it to leverage control…

Ryan had too many Bikini Blondes in Maui

Last summer, Ryan and I were lucky enough to sit down and have a chat with Garrett Marrero, the founder of Maui Brewing Co.  As if there were not already plenty of reasons to visit the beautiful island of Maui, there is also a brewery creating magnificent craft beer in Lahaina.  The interview lasted over an hour but unfortunately, most of the best gems are forever lost as the camera turned off unbeknownst to us.  What you should take from that is being a soggy Single Malt Mate is…

Letters From Cuba

Excerpt: There are few things Americans can’t do, and to my Non-US readers I don’t mean to arrogantly suggest that Americans are superhuman in some way.  What I mean is that in the States personal liberty prevails and it affords us the opportunity to do most things that we want, not unlike many other great countries around the world.  But one thing that the majority of Americans have not been able to do for the last 50 years is visit Cuba, at least not officially or not without very special permission.  The law technically says US citizens cannot spend USD in…
