Steve and Adam work their way through some offerings from Flying Fish out of Somerdale, New Jersey. They talk about the upcoming Game of Thrones beer, the new pickle beers available at Picklesburgh in Pittsburgh. Then they bitch like old men about millennials wasting their money at adult summer camps held by breweries. It wasn't really a debate. It was more just crankiness from two different positions. Finally they look to the Minnesota State Fair for inspiration in their next homebrew as they learn about cold smoke and fair foods. Also they make fun of people who say "wooder."
