Beer is a Conversation: Steve Carpenter
4 days ago
This week on Beer is a Conversation, James Atkinson and Pete Mitcham are joined by Steve Carpenter, Chief Operations Officer at Yakima Chief-Hopunion, a global hop supplier headquartered in Yakima USA. His family has been growing hops in the Yakima Valley since 1869, so it’s fair to say the business of hop growing is in his blood. He talked about current trends in the hop sector and the challenges facing growers in a rapidly evolving craft beer market. Enjoy the conversation.

One of the best Oz beer podcasts..
An honest appraisal of the state of the craft beer and related industries in Australia. Healthy dose of cynicism from at least one of the podcasters at times, and a good rapport between the two. Love the work fellas, don't change anything except maybe make the recordings a bit more frequent.
One gripe is that only the 10 latest recordings show on Stitcher, either on the website or the mobile app, which makes it hard to access quickly on the go. The guys at Ale of a Time seem to have sorted this out (they have all episodes uploaded), I'm sure they'd be happy to advise as to how to sort this. Besides this, keep up the good work and hopefully have a chance to shout you a beer sometime around the traps.
