A Christmas trip to Kentucky brought up a number of questions and discoveries for us. Historical beers are a super interesting topic to delve into. We only scratch the surface here and spend a bunch of time on it.
Jason and I are two very white guys talking on a podcast, but we are not blind to the issues of minority and gender relations in the brewing industry. We take time to talk about what responsibility does a brewery have to their local community to be more than just a provider of quality beer and a place to hang out after a hard workday.
We revived an old portion of our podcast as a full episodes. Rather than reviewing single beers though we try to review entire breweries and predict the future of who will be around and what they will look like.
After both brewing an American Pale Ale we take the time to do a side by side on them to see the difference based on our equipment and procedures. We talk talk about developments in our temperature control chambers.
Two craft beer juggernauts are merging. We discuss the pros and cons here and what it might mean for the companies, customers, and industry.
Oh boy the stories. Homebrewing is a rollercoaster of different issues and emotions.
Homebrewing tends to appeal to the curious and the inventor. We talk about various experiments, both the good and the bad, with homebrewing over the years.
Homebrewing is great, but this the best of the best of the best
Honestly you cant avoid the big breweries forever. While their market share is diminishing they still hold the lionshare of the brewing market.
