Episode 45 - Advocating for Beer
6 days ago
We start with our next charity effort, before we head to the Pub, where we revisit the Brewers Association's Independent Beer Seal and reactions to it, talk about Denny's trip that is currently as we go live stll has him in the air, a brewery open and a close as well.
In the library, Denny explores Scott Janish's recent exploration of trying to make a clear NE IPA, and how you have to pay attention to grain proteins and hop polyphenols.
Over in the brewery, Drew talks his new love - a cranky old style machine for making beer cans at home and just how much he can't wait. (Odd for a guy who hates bottling!)
Then in the Lounge, Drew sits down at Arts District Brewing with recent California transplant, Todd Alström, one of the founders of BeerAdvocate.com. They cover just how the brothers founded a beer review site all the way back in the infancy of the internet (1996), changes he's seen in the industry - including the first Craft Beer bubble and what he thinks of whales, trading and the IPAfication of everything.
We tackle a pair of questions (Hey, Episode 48 is a Q&A - get some questions to us!) We do drop a quick tip to keep cool and Drew goes and explores the soothing sounds of old dogs sleeping
