Episode 12 – Trump Taxes, Scouting Badges and Fossil Fuel Car Ban

The 12th episode of the ‘Beer n BS Show’

This week we have a guest on the show filling in for Rachel – Steven Carter, the host of the Points of Brew Podcast. Steve helps us drink a few beers and give us his take on craft ale and this week’s news stories. Full details of the show and links to social media can be found below.

We cover this week’s big story – Trump’s tax return details that were published by the NY Times. What a loser! Scouts have been enlisted to fight fake news with a new badge launched by Bear Grylls. Also covered and discussed is the news that the UK plans to bring forward a ban on fossil fuel vehicles by 2030.

Aaron’s Beer Suggestion:

    This IPA hits the balance between bitterness and juicy hops combining Citra, chinook and columbus with a drier body and light crisp malt bill. Easy drinking with enough bite to keep you coming back for more.
