Glenn Cole from Geneseo Brewing Company came in today to catch us up on the goings-on in the Quad Cities Craft Beer World!  You can find the full clip above.

He brought in the Beer of the Day: "Desperado" IPA.  A blend of hops, lemondrop cascade and waiti (sp?) west coast style IPA

Actually Brandon Mavis from Craft Quad Cities brought it in.  Here's a tip.  Find people to come on your radio show that will give you free beer.  You're welcome.  Also, find people who will write your blogs for you.  Thanks Brandon!
