Beer gurus Augie Carton (Carton Brewing) and John Holl (author and beer writer) get to the bottom of the day’s most pressing craft beer issues with help from opinionated brewer friends, know-it-all barkeeps, and smarmy industry insiders. For each episode, Augie and John will blind-taste and dissect two beers on air (provided by that episode’s guest) while discussing current beer topics, news, and styles.


AUGIE CARTON is the gregarious owner of Carton Brewing Co. in Atlantic Highlands, NJ—the seashore community where he was born and raised. An epicurean of the most hedonistic order, Augie is, above all else, an all around good drinker.


JOHN HOLL is the author of Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint, The American Craft Beer Cookbook and Dishing Up New Jersey. A journalist since 1996 his work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and Wine Enthusiast.
