I had a pretty lengthy and entertaining conversation Tuesday afternoon with Slouch Sixpack from the website Aleheads.com about the Ohio beer scene. That discussion is now available as a podcast and you can check it out by clicking here.


We chatted about well-known Ohio breweries such as Great Lakes and Hoppin' Frog, and breweries that should be better known nationally such as Fat Head's and Jackie O's.


Slouch -- no, that's not his real name -- also is planning to attend The Big Tap In in Youngstown next month so we talked about some of the smaller breweries he wasn't familiar with and is looking forward to sampling.
