The Beerists Craft Beer Podcast

Every week, John Rubio and his co-hosts, Grant Davis, and Mike Lambert, meet to taste, discuss, and judge five different beers from all over the world. Part beer appreciation, part drunken comedy, it’s the only beer podcast the A.V. Club calls, “consistently illuminating and amusing.”
