The Session: 09-12-10 - Jeff "Cheif" O'Neil from Ithaca Beer Company
 
Recap: 
 
Justin and Doc are fresh off their trip to Burning Man. They are happy to report that there were no deaths this year, other than a few of their brain cells.

We taste Four Loko, the latest malt liquor energy drink. It's an abomination, but Doc can't get enough of it.

Shat does his announcements.

We get Jeff "Chief" O'Neil from Ithaca Brewing Co. on the line from New York. We talk about Jeff's California-honed brewing chops, and the reasons for his move to New York.

We review some of the brews Jeff is entering at GABF this year. He won two silver medals in 2008, but came up empty last year, so he's looking forward to bringing home some hardware in 2010. 

We taste some of the beer Jeff was kind enough to send us - we start with his limited run SF IPA, then we get into his staple Flower Power IPA, and we finish with his amazing Excelsior Sours.

Jeff answers listeners questions, and goes into detail about his brewing processes.

Adam Mills calls and tells us about the BN Homebrew Club's multiple medal showing at the Michigan Beer Cup. Nice work BN Army!

We close out the show with calls for DOTW, and Richard from Alabama takes it down.

Moscow is the new producer of the Brewing Network's Sunday Session. He is also one of the few pork eating Jews we know, but please don't tell his mother. Thank you.
