Monterey, CA – January 19, 2013 – On November 7th, 2012, KRML 102.1 FM’s new lifestyle program "Pub Talk with The Beer Geek and Friends" premiered inside Peter B’s Brewpub behind the Portola Hotel & Spa. Now, the show airs live every Wednesday at 5 p.m. PST inside Peter B’s Brewpub with Chris Nelson, aka The Beer Geek.

“Pub Talk on KRML is a great opportunity to highlight Peter B's and the greater beer community on the Monterey Peninsula,” said Nelson, “In my beer travels, I have seen how the pub, or public house, can be the soul and social center of a community. In a small way, I hope to recreate that feeling with this show.”

Every week Nelson welcomes special guests and talks about friends, adventures, politics, sports and of course beer. Peter B's resident Brewmaster Kevin Clark taps a new beer cask each week and listeners can listen in for special prizes, giveaways and food and drink specials.
