Don’t call it dirt. Dirt is dead. Soil is alive (insert Vincent Price laugh)! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!!!!
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/
Is this a rant, sciency science or a marketing discussion? I’ve listened to it three times and I’m still not sure. Polyphenols and all kinds of -humulones run rampant as we discuss addition timing and where hop bittering comes from.
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.
In another installment of “they asked it on the Discord” we discuss the sciency-science around hop breeding. Haploid, diploid, triploid. We get all ploidy on you this week.
It’s hot. Damn hot. But then it gets crazy cold. The old max/min for temperature, rainfall, etc is becoming less and less relevant as variability increases and timeframes change. How do you pivot to accommodate your crop?
Aroma vs Taste vs Flavor. A plucky debate on the Discord server turned into 70 pages of technical papers, which we’ve shared on www.hopnology.com/resources.
The 2020 year in review from the Brewer’s Association: was it as bad as predicted 12 months ago?
