This week we sit down with Exhibit A Brewing Company head brewer and co-founder Matthew Steinberg to talk about his path into the industry and local collaboration. Then we drink some of his beer. https://www.exhibit-a-brewing.com/
Okay, we’ve talked about the HOW behind hop breeding. Now let’s examine WHY you would do this.
If you’ve been listening you know that we’re enjoying the growth in the non-alcoholic craft beer category. Co-founder of Athletic Brewing John Walker joins us to talk about the rise of NA beer, how Athletic came to be and adding occasions to the beer drinking life. Plus: The Scientific Method makes an appearance!
In another “we read it so you don’t have to”, we dissect a random writer’s claims of the big 5 trends in craft beer. Spoiler: we’re not impressed.
The 2020 year in review from the Brewer’s Association: was it as bad as predicted 12 months ago?
This week we discuss some of the beer trends of 2020 and then get into where farming could be in the next 20 years. It’s full of odd concepts like “share of throat”, “hippie vinegar tea” and “decorating the cow with data”. Also, see what happens when Gregg tries a really unpleasant beer.
Cans vs bottles, rainbows on labels, and packaging safety. Also why you don’t take James to your favorite brewery.
G’day Mates! This week we take a break from our North America-centric focus and get into it with our Australia growers. Don’t be a yabbo, we’ll give you the John Dory on the market down under and hopefully not make a dog’s breakfast of the whole thing.
It’s been a while since we first discussed non-alcoholic beers, and we’ve done a *lot* of research since then. By research of course I mean sampling.
Continuing where last week’s cliffhanger ended, we’re back with the second half of our talk with Jen and Rachael. Don’t forget to check out their podcast, the False Bottomed Girls. The full 2-part session is also now available on the hopnology YouTube channel!
