Raise a Glass with the Beer Olympics!

Our Selection of Brews in the "Stouts" Competition at the Beer Olympics
Raise a Glass, the weekly radio program and podcast that I host along with Eric Ducote from BR Beer Scene as well as Jeremy Spikes and James Lawson from Whisky Bomb, has begun Season 4 of our show.  Fortunately for us, this season is all about BEER!  Specifically, we're exploring beer from all over the world in a series called the "Beer Olympics."  All summer long, leading up to the Summer Olympic Games in London, our crew will be in person at The Cove recording episodes of Raise a Glass that match up beers from around the world.  Each competition is categorized either by the style of beer or some other random fact, then tasted against each other on the air until we reveal our Bronze, Silver, and Gold medalists for that category.  At the end of the summer we'll have tasted nearly 200 beers from probably around 25 different countries and we'll have a medal ceremony complete the the final medal count. We might even take all of our gold medalists back for one more test drive to determine the double gold winner!

Beers from the "Saison/Farmhouse Ale" Olympic Event
Make sure to stay up to date with the medal count on the Raise a Glass page.

You can listen to the show every Friday at 6 PM and replays every Sunday at 4 PM on WHYR 96.9 FM LP Baton Rouge Community Radio.  It is also available streaming through the Raise a Glass page or on iTunes.

And since we're recording the episodes at The Cove, you can come meet us there and sample beers with us almost every Wednesday this summer at 6 PM (We're not there the first Wednesday of June or July 4th, but otherwise it should be every week)!  We can always use some company and help drinking beer!
