Join us as the Cincy Brewcast crew invades Ei8ht Ball Brewing, at The Party Source in Newport/Bellevue, Kentucky. We are joined by “3 Guys”; Head Brewer Mitch Dougherty, The Party Source Craft Beer Manager and mastermind behind nomad brewery “Quaff Bros.” Danny Gold, and Ei8ht Ball Taproom Manager and “Beer Ambassador” James “Peanut” Kahles. The guys tell us about Ei8ht Ball “from the beginning”–the impetus behind having a craft brewery as part of one of the largest adult beverage retailers in the nation, how the taplist developed and where it’s going in the future and (maybe too much) about their unique branding (the story of which is worth listening to in and of itself)! We also taste though a wide representation of the 11-beer strong taplist, including classic offerings “Tarnished” Golden Ale, “Red Drink” Red IPA and “Prodigal” APA, and newer favorites like assistant brewer Vergil Ustick’s “Yoga Pants” Black IPA, the delicious “Doppio” Coffee Porter, and Barrel Aged “Foursome” a big 16% ABV flavor-bomb Dark Fruit Quad brewed in collaboration with Nogne O. Brewing of Denmark. Another terrific show with more great Cincinnati brewers on Cincy Brewcast, “The Voice of Cincy Craft”!
