Ep. 18: I Need to Spend More Time on the Internet

In Episode 18 of the Operation Shutdown, I welcome back friend of the show Ed Grohl and  we are joined by special guest Theo Armstrong, owner/brewer of ZerØday Brewing Company. We discussed: Lyrical Gangster, Theo’s most ambitious beer to date, the difficulty and the joy of opening a brewery, the clear beer vs. hazy beer ,and Theo’s lack of time on the Internet.

A disclosure a quick note:  Theo was kind enough to provide me with a bottle of Lyrical Gangster in advance of the podcast. Lyrical Gangster is available at ZerØday Brewing Company on Saturday, January 21st beginning at 1:00 pm. It is a great beer and you should definitely run out to get one of these very limited bottles.
