At long last, I’m proud to unveil the first in the Drinkable Globe podcast series. Our inaugural guests are Sarah and Giancarlo Annese, founders of Beer Union, a website delivering beer news in NYC.

Sarah and Giancarlo have also written a book, Beer Lover’s New York, a comprehensive guide to great beer in the state.

Still tweaking the format for future editions. The goal is to make the podcasts more conversations than interviews.

My producer tells me I sound a bit pompous and pedantic in this one, so I’ll try to dial that back a bit for future episodes.
