For this episode, Justin still has a bug up his ass about beer terms being used incorrectly so we're going down that road again. If you don't believe him that coffee isn't an adjunct, maybe you'll believe Narrow Gauge Head Brewer, Jeff Hardesty, who sits in on this episode to weigh in on the topic. For the second week in a row, the awesomeness that is Sarah graces us with her presence and Blake is back in action after his week away.

All beer consumed this episode were from Narrow Gauge:

Cinq
Kofe
Tableau de Fleurs
Old Town Porter

Sandt, a beer industry employee, who recently took the Certified Cicerone® exam and Sarah Rybicki, a beer industry employee who is studying to take the exam.

For episode 30 of Beering Impaired, we welcome Grant Lodholz and Cam Lund from Bluewood Brewing. Where are they located? Nowhere! These guys are in planning right now but look for them next year to open a place to call their own. They brought an IPA called "Testify" that comes in at 24% ABV (not a typo) and two barrel aged stouts that use the same base but one is all spiced up with coffee and secret ingredients.
