My friend Doak Procter joins me to talk about beer, home brewing, and this month’s Dixie Cup (October 16-18), which is the largest single-site home brew competition in Houston. Celebrating its 31st year, the Dixie Cup is put on by the Foam Rangers, which the city’s largest and oldest home brew club. Doak breaks down just what all goes into a competition of this size, and he also tells us what we can expect at this year’s event.
