I hope you all enjoyed the last installment of the Long Island beer and malt podcast, The Daily Catch. This week I’m joined by Rich Thatcher, fellow beer and whiskey enthusiast and contributor to Catch & Release (my blog) where he writes about whiskey and Long Island restaurants.

Rich and I talk with Dudley Cates, the man behind Crop Circle Ale.  We caught up with Dudley out in front of Shoreline Beverage in Huntington.  It’s not just a cool name for a beer, it’s brewed with malted barely from the fields in England where the crop circles appear each year. Dudley says there are still crop circles appearing in the fields and the first one of the season is due soon. 

After that, we take you on a trip to Mugs Ale House in Brooklyn and our recurring guest Mike tells us about his JW Lees 1988.

I then finish the show by telling you about my latest beer cocktail concoction: the Long Island Sunrise.

Next week… We take you on a trip to Sixpoint Craft Ales in Brooklyn and taste some of their new wheat beer.
