Well, if you’ve listened to the show for a while, you’ve heard this episode teased a few times over the past year. The day has finally come. We’re taste-testing some year old cold brew that we made back on May 21, 2016. We’re tasting a couple of days early since it’s only May 18 at the time of this recording, but we just couldn’t wait any longer. The suspense has been killing us.
