Wach Beers With Brad

This week, Roger Adamson, Beers and Spirits Specialist from Binny’s Beverage Depot in Willowbrook, was back to discuss Beers with Brad. To get us all ready for St. Patrick’s Day, he brought three festive beers to be sampled by Brad on the show, they were Magnums Hard Cider, Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale and Victory HopDevil Indian Pale Ale. Brad then rated the beers, giving Magnums Hard Cider a 7.5 out of 10, Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale a 9 out of 10 and Victory HopDevil an 8 out of 10.

For the technology portion of the show, Brad and his guests, SWC consultants – Elliott Baretz, Jeff Lanham, Mark Johnson and Noah Mattern, discussed the Microsoft Surface Tablet and the Apple iPad. The guests provided viewpoints from each side comparing both the pros and cons of each device. The Microsoft Surface Tablet earned two points for the integration of Microsoft products and great business use. The Apple iPad earned four points and proved to be the best tablet for its ease of use, popularity and use outside the office. Viewers tweeted in their questions live on the show, some that were answered included: “Which tablet are your clients using more often, the Surface or iPad?” and “Which tablet gives you the better bang for your buck?”
