"Cognac, in the most simple terms, is distilled twice. It yields a more refined spirit with a higher level of alcohol when it comes out of the still. It's called double distillation. Armagnac has a simpler or continuous distillation process so the spirit that comes out after the distillation process is at a lower proof, but because it has only been distilled once, it has a more fragrant and flavorful result."

Grab a beer and enjoy another jam-packed episode of Beer Sessions Radio! This week - Jimmy and the crew are checking in on the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp! This summer, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is inviting every craft brewery in the country (count ‘em: more than 2,700) along for Beer Camp Across America, the largest collaboration the craft brewing world has ever seen. Beer Camp Across America is a multi-weekend path of beer festivals, a rolling tour that will cover 4,800 miles, celebrating the collaborative spirit of the craft brewing community with the fans that have buoyed its success. There’ll be seven stops—in cities with thriving craft beer cultures—moving geographically west to east, much like the craft movement has historically spread. Tune in and hear from some of the brewers involved as Jimmy tastes through the collection on-air! This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

"The market for [these collaborative beers] is anybody who's adventurous as the brewers themselves - people looking for something off the beaten path." [12:00]
