We Like Drinking Podcast

The truth is, most of us don't just drink one type of drink, we enjoy all kinds of adult beverages. The majority of the podcast and blogging world, however, sees the world through their own myopic drinking glasses. It's either all beer, all wine, or all spirits, in other words, they're boringly singular. We Like Drinking recognizes that the drink you crave depends on the situation, environment, mood and a host of other things. This podcast works hard to have fun first and maybe teach you something about your favorite drinks.

Doley writes - Had a new (to me) wine recently.  Austin Hope cab from Paso Robles. That stuff is really, really good.  Try it if you can. Finally, a beer question for John: I had this beer on tap at a restaurant.

Really liked it. It’s from a small brewery a few hours away and is only available at the brewery and in a few restaurants. From looking at the description, can you recommend any more widely available beers that might be similar?
