King Mike Karnowski: Zebulan Artisan Ales

Mike-KarnowskiThe very first rum barrel bourbon aged beer and the very first sour beer made in Asheville were brewed by Mike Karnowski at Dirty Jacks several years ago. Now known as the King of Specialty, Mike has his own production brewery in Weaverville, where he brews historical, forgotten, and mythological beers. Find out if the haze brings anything to an IPA, as Monique Ruiz and Tommy Green zone out, while Jonathan Ayers and Mike Karnowski geek out. Dedicating upcoming beers to Prince, Muhammad Ali, and Albert Hoffman (the inventor of LSD) we were lucky to taste Prince in episode #0022.

We were elated and giddy throughout, happy that we no longer lived in the worst State in the Union. The Funniest Man in Beer, Adam Charnack of Hi-Wire Brewing, hosts us for our podcast at Hi-Wire Brewing's Big Top. Could we have been tripping on LSD? Download the Brewpon app to listen.
