Deschutes Brewery with Brian Faivre and Kyle Matthias
Diving into the Abyss with Deschutes Brewery Deschutes Brewery was founded in 1988.  For a craft brewery, that's a long time ago.  Kyle Matthias, the Assitant Brewmaster at Deschutes' Pilot Plant tells us that innovation and agility are key for their continued success. We're joined this week by Matthias and Brewmaster Brian Faivre to hear more about what's going on at Deschutes.  While sipping a few of their amazing beers we discuss beer trends, staying ahead of the game as a bigger brewery, their new flavored malt beverage Modified Theory (NOT a hard seltzer!), brewing beer in the land of legal weed, and Deschutes' new Reserve Club.  Craft Beer News Constellation Brands is Closing Its Ballast Point Taproom in Daleville, Virginia The Beer List Deschutes Abyss 2015 Deschutes The Dissident Deschutes The Stoic 2015 Creature Comforts Eukaryote Monk's Mead Abstinence in the Abbey Next Week on Beer Guys Radio It's time for our annual Oktoberfest show!  Join us as we sample some Oktoberfest brews as we chat with Tucker Brewing Co.

14th Star Brewing with co-founder Steve Gagner
14th Star Brewing is craft beer Brewed With a Mission 14th Star Brewing co-founder Steve Gagner tells us how a late night of drinking led to a WalMart run for soapmaking supplies, and how this all ties in with his eventual interest in brewing and opening his own brewery. Despite the humorous roots, Gagner takes his beer very seriously and strives to serve his community, especially veterans. The original business plan was jotted on the back of a notebook while Gagner served on the battlefields of Afghanistan.  Upon returning home, the plan was refined with the help of his best friend and fellow soldier Matt Kehaya.  14th Star opened their doors in 2012 with a 3.5-barrel brewhouse.  As demand for their beer grew, 14th Star moved their current location in 2014 and upgraded to a 30-barrel brewhouse. We talk with Gagner about hazy IPAs and the difference in a Vermont IPA and NE IPA, maple beers (we kind of had to), and we talk about his efforts to serve veterans, common misconceptions the public has about veterans, and the best thing we can do to support veterans once they return home.

Stan Hieronymus talks hops, yeast, and South American craft beer
Stan Hieronymus knows a thing or two about hops Stan Hieronymus has forgotten more about the beer industry than most of us will ever know.  He's typically leaned on for his knowledge of hops, but his expertise extends to many other areas in craft beer.  Hieronymus relocated to the Atlanta area about 1 1/2 years ago and we bend his ear every chance we get.  He joined us in early 2018 (BGR #120) and we thought it was about time to have him on again for an update. Naturally, we talk a lot about hops in this episode.  We get the update on the hop harvest across Europe and the Pacific NW and discuss hop terroir, a topic that hasn't been mentioned often but is generating more buzz after recent tests.  Some yeast talk happens as well, and we talk about our latest obsession - kveik.  We hear about the durability of true kveik strains and how real Norwegian farmhouse brewers make their beer, and it's likely nothing like what you've had at your local brewery.  With Hieronymus's recent trip to South America, we hear about the craft beer scene there and what styles are popular.  Spoiler... haze is an international craze. To get regular update from Stan you can subscribe to his newsletter via his website at Craft Beer News New York Farmers Are Looking For New Hops (We discuss this more in the show.)
