Pubcast 199-3 Myths and Legends Brewing Redux

In this special edition, we visit the newly-named Myths and Legends Brewing Co., in Westmont, IL. Previously, Urban Legend, they changed their name for legal reasons but the beers remain the same high quality.
Mark and I visit with them just prior to the official day 1 as M&L, and check in with Jason Hancock, owner/president, to find out the reasons for the change, and then sit down with Dan Rosenberg, head brewer to chat beer and sup a couple of his brews.

Pubcast 199-2 In Absentia – Instant Brew Reviews

Another week of vacation time for the staff of the Brit and Yankee, and we continue to fill in with a couple of short shows of Instant Brew Reviews.  Mark and Phil come across a variety of brews on their travels, and we’d like to share them with you, and give you our opinions and comments on them.  If you come across them as well, drop us a line at and we’d like to hear your thoughts as well.  Cheers!

This edition, a couple of beers from Lincoln, NE.

Brewery description: Pronounced like “Companion” and German for ‘Buddy’ or ‘Pal’, this German style ale was brewed by one of our investors with a strong German background (come on, his name is Stortenbecker).  It follows the German Purity Law – Reinheitsgebot and is a tribute to man’s best crime fighting buddy, the K-9.  Enjoy a nice clean, light bready sweetness with a crisp hint of citrus on the finish.
