Pat’s Pints Podcast Episode 3 – High Gravity Beers

In the third installment of the Pat’s Pints podcast we talk high gravity beers with Jim Gokenbach and Jennie Koeper of Zaftig Brewing, and Doug Oldham of the Columbus Craft Beer Alliance.  This show includes a preview of the High Gravity Hullabaloo (Saturday, Feb 6, 2015), an in-depth discussion on the past, present and future of Zaftig, reviews of two Ohio brewed barrel aged imperial stouts, and an update on efforts to change Ohio’s abv law.  Tangential story lines include hopped coffees and barrel aging.  The show finishes with everyone weighing in with their five favorite high gravity beers (spoiler alert, Jim has a hard time narrowing his list down to five).
