Since our last new non-QA episode of the show, things got interesting in the beer world. We talk to Melissa McCann of the Women's International Beer Summit (and the newly formed Women's Craft Fermentation Alliance). In the meanwhile we also t

The Brew is Out There! The rise of the craft lager has been predicted many times and seems, in the last few years, to come to fruition. But what about the IPL or Hoppy American lager? Given enough time and attempts, brewers have figured it

We took a week off from hops, but we could never leave them for long. With all of the new ways of using hops, the IBU (which was already a lie) seems increasingly inadequate to reflect the modern beer experience. We're talking to our friends

The Brew is Out There! We've threatened and now we're doing. In this episode we bring together Drew and Denny's advice about brewing a Triple IPA and combine it with professional brewers you know and love like Jamil and Mitch! And Drew taste
Mergers keep happening - this time between two Bend power houses. What to make of it? Pirates? Mummies? And Denny talks to Ryan Farrell, the director of the AHA and, well, the tables might get turned! Episode Links: BYO Bootcamp: https://byo.

The Brew is Out There! Can you believe it's been nearly a 100 episodes and we've never talked about Saison? Time to fix that by talking to Peter Howson about his award winning Petite Saison. Links: The Recipe: https://www.experimentalbrew.c

The Brew is Out There! Brown Ale has a bad reputation. It's old man fuddy duddy beer, but for many of us that warm embrace of suppable malt was amongst our first forays into good beer. Denny and Drew walk you through what makes a brown ale
IPA rules the roost of the Craft Beer world and in this episode, we're exploring a variation of of the fundamental Double IPA - Pliny For President and then talking with Graciany about his Triple IPA and just how long it lived in cold storage.
While Drew is getting his ducks in a row for the next series of shows - It's Replay time! And since we've been getting a lot of water questions, what better place to revist, than Martin's episode all about Bru'n water! The Brew is Out There!
