MKE Brewing Co (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is on the table this week. Katie and Cathy try Outboard, O-Gii, MKE IPA, and Hop Freak. Need a refresher on what our color scale means? This is also a good episode to listen to for that. Katie and especially Cathy suffer for you by turning off the AC for a cleaner recording, forcing the apartment to be very hot. Which turned out to be in the beer’s benefit as they taste very refreshing in the heat. Listen to this episode and try these beers in summer!
