In this latest episode of the Irish Beer Snob podcast, we attempt to answer question that no one has asked. Which is better, Aldi's Rheinbacher, in Can format or in bottles? 

To help us in our quest, we engaged the supreme beer tasting talents of John "The Beer Nut" to answer this question once and for all! We look back at John's blog when it started and how it's grown over the years. We also chat to him regarding http://beoir.org/ and his role there.

Follow The Beer Nut on Twitter to keep up with his hijinks.
