Alex takes the Tap Takeover Podcast on a little beercation to Decorah, IA for the release of the Morning Delight breakfast stout at Toppling Goliath Brewery. Fortunately, both owner Clark Lewey and brewmaster Mike Saboe were able to spare some precious time on a busy day for an amazing interview! Where did the names Toppling Goliath and Pseudo-Sue originate? Does the building of a new brewing facility mean an expansion in distribution? Will the SR-71 ever be brewed again? We’ve got the answers on this very special bonus episode! Cheers!
Andy and Alex preview the upcoming interview with Toppling Goliath Brewing Company. Alex gives us some highlights from the interview and the guys taste and give their opinions on Sosus Double IPA. Check out the full interview dropping on 9/20/17.
The gang gets together to discuss a busy Fall season that includes some big interviews! We have Toppling Goliath, The Fermentorium,, Central Water and one we confirmed right before we did the video!

Come join us on the first trip to Madison, WI for the Tap Takeover Podcast crew as we interview the legendary team at Ale Asylum! We sit down with Dean, Hathaway, and Otto to talk all about their disciplined brewing techniques using zero adjuncts, their wildly successful marketing campaigns, and some fun stories from the early days at the brewery. What is it like to receive death threats because your beer is so good, but you aren’t making Velveteen Habit year round? What does it take to embrace the “Beer Nazi” monicker? Where did the name Ale Asylum originate? All these stories and more, plus a special Beer News with a brand new release from Milwaukee’s Broken Bat Brewery, information on the upcoming Ferment Dissent Festival, and some more fun surprises! Cheers to the Inmates!
