A Podcast & A Beer – Plain English

I don’t really do political podcasts or takes on current news but I like Plain English. Host Derek Thompson doesn’t break a topic down as much as he just is plain clear. It cuts through the noise. The podcast has been especially good of late in breaking down the crisis in Ukraine.

For this podcast, let’s get literal. Real literal. First despite a trend to complicated, ingredient laden beers, find the plainest blond ale or crispy pilsner as you can find. Go as simple as possible.

Or, you can pick up something English, perhaps an ESB or a Mild ale. Eagle Rock Brewery brings their dark mild, Solidarity out this time of year and that would be perfect.
