Don't forget, tonight at 9:00pm on WSUM, 91.7, Beer Talk Today and Madison Beer Review will be on the air. We are going to debunk the myths of contract brewing. We will look at how contract brewing works, the popular myths and misconceptions and truths about contract brewing, and we will look at, and talk to, some contract brewers around the state - including some that you may find very, very surprising. So, if you're in Madison, tune in tonight to 91.7. Otherwise, you'll have to wait to next week.

Is "silage" a positive adjective when describing a beer's aroma? Only those that listen shall know.
