Episode 49 - Brewing Cerveceros Style  

Back to our regularly scheduled programming as we stop by the pub to talk the newly updated Brew Guru App from the AHA, a bit of beer business, including something positive about ABI and a reason Drew is proud of his mom. We jaunt quickly through the library for a funny article about goldfish and a BrewTan B announcement (spoiler: it's coming soon from our sponsor BrewCraft USA!). In the Lounge, Drew sits down with Roberto Hernandez of the Monrovia Homebrew Supply store and Ray Ricky Rivera and Luis Martinez of LA's first Latino focused homebrew club - the SoCal Cerveceros about why having a Latino club is important to the hobby and what their cultural heritage brings to the hobby. Then naturally we swing out with a few questions, drop a quick tip, Drew raves about a new book triology he found and finished between recording and publishing.

The Brew Is Out There! RECIPE SHOW On this week's episode of the Brew Files, it's a family adventure on the high seas as Drew sits down and talks to his brother in law, Chris Geisler, and sister, Aimee, both homebrewer.

Episode 47 - We've Got the Arts in a Bag  

We're back at it in our last to go show before the Q&A! (questions@experimentalbrew.com!) In the feedback section, Drew eats a big ole helping of crow for failing to hold to his stated principles. In the Pub - we talk about our Wyeast Q3 Private Collection Strains Contest and reveal the three winners and their recipes. Link below for the recipes themselves. Thanks to everyone who entered and our good sponsors at Wyeast! Then it's back to the business of beer with the latest round of acquisitions including Funky Buddha, Anchor and the really interesting combination of New Belgium, Dick Cantwell, Oud Beersel and Magnolia. Are we finally at that same tipping point where over expansion is pinching some brewers like Magnolia and the recently annouced to close Rubicon? In the lab, we actually invite in a guest as BrewTube's Short Circuited Brewers (Brian Huntley) makes us do a triangle test on the mics. What experimental madness is he up to and can Denny or Drew get it right? You're just going to have to listen to find out! And then in the lounge, Drew sits down with Devon Randall of Arts District Brewing and talks about leaving LA to become a brewer and coming back to the city and landing in a warehouse formerly run by a crazy man (Crazy Gideon). Devon's making a hell of a spread and you should give it a try. We race over Q&A because hey - you should be getting us questions for Episode 48! But we do take a moment to hit a quick tip about exploring your different varieties of specialty ingredients and Drew drops two things in Something Other - a hysterical set of Game of Throne recaps from BlackNerdProblems and the ongoing constantly moving CA Pinkham column "Off the Menu" with awful wonderful stories from the world of restaurants and bars.

The Brew Is Out There! STYLE SHOW On this week's episode of the Brew Files, we sit down with one of the giants of homebrewing - Randy Mosher - about how he got started, why the library is super important and just how he plays with all the crazy ingredients he finds to bring in the brewhouse.

Episode 46 - Chilling Out in Chile  

It's time to swing way South of the Border and head to Chile with Denny as he attends the 2nd Annual South American Cup in Santiago, but first we look at your canning feedback. In the pub, we sit down with a couple of special beers (and Drew gets to be right!), talk about Ostrich boot based silliness, bootleggers in Peru (Indiana) and what the new model of acquisitions seems to be currently with Lagunitas buying part of Shorts and Brooklyn, 21A and Funkwerks teaming up. In the library, we take a swing around Dr. Charlie Bamforth's recent speech in Australia about Craft Beer and the things he thinks brewers really need to be focusing on. While in the Brewery we talk about the upcoming Green Hop extravanganza from YCH Hops. And then in the lounge, we sit back and listen to Denny's memories of his trip to Chile and we even hop in the back of a crowded vehicle shepharding Denny to the foot of the Andes mountains and Tübinger Brewery in the middle of some of the world's premier wine country. While there Denny talks with Charles Flaskamp about the brewery and his beers. Finally we race over Q&A because hey - you should be getting us questions for Episode 48! But we do take a moment to hit a quick tip about saving your beer for review and Drew drops two things in Something Other - a podcast about interviewing (The Turnaround with Jesse Thorn) and the return of last year's mention from youtube - the very charming "Alice in Paris".

Episode 45 - Advocating for Beer  

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 Episode Links: Alesong Brewing - https://www.alesongbrewing.com/ Ploughshare Brewing Closes - http://journalstar.com/entertainment/dining/ploughshare-brewing-co-close...

Episode 44 - Pocket Pitching Seals  

UPDATE: Sorry, we had a bad render on our Bob interview. If you download again, you should be able to hear Bob now! We start, as always, with your feedback and recap our successful charity effort, before we head to the Pub, where we reminisce about HomeBrewCon and what we did and enjoyed. We talk about a new seal (no not that one - that's later) and about Russian River's success and planned sale. In the library, Drew takes a little bit of time to talk about Patrick McGovern, the Indiana Jones of Beer, and his latest book, Ancient Brews. In the lab, we break down the results of our UnderPitch experiment - what went right and how Drew sorta, kinda goofed part of the whole thing. (Yeah, he's fired). What does happen when the freshest yeast you can get meets wor in two very different quantities? Then in the Lounge, it's another double dose of interviews - first, live from the Southern California Homebrewers Fest, Drew and Marshall Schott (Brülosophy) interview Joshua Kunkle about his portable pocket randall infuser with a less than work safe name! Then, Denny and Drew sit down with Bob Pease, the CEO of the Brewers Association about the newly introduced "Independent Beer" seal (note - not craft beer seal as Denny states). We skip over questions this week (Hey, Episode 48 is a Q&A - get some questions to us!) We do drop a quick tip and Drew reminds us why movie trailers can remind you of some awesomely non-family friendly music. (Seriously!)

Episode 42 - Hopping and Festing With Nick  

Hey, guess what - it's our first repeat guest! (We think - who can keep track?) But first, an announcement: Homebrew Con (15-17) 14th - 6:00 PM Trivia at Chop & Bru Party - See ChopandBrew.com for ticket details 15th - Hold My Beer and Watch Me Science 16th - Panel: Building a Great Homebrew Club / Craftmeister / Book Signing / Podcast at BrewCraftUSA Booth 17th - Denny Rests, Maybe In the feedback, we take a moment to re-visit some questions about Bio-Transformation and address some very pointed criticism about our Brew-Tan experiment. In the pub, we enjoy a pint or two we raise a pint to Peter Simpson, talk a big beer slide, how to avoid selling out to the IPA-borg and a Chinese Bud Bust. Inspired by the MBAA Master Brewers podcast, we stop by the library and look at Barth-Haas's latest dissection of hop flavor and aroma as spurred by all these fancy new hops we have at hand. We stop in the brewery to review Drew's reviews of several malts, including those from our sponsor, Mecca Grade Estate. Which malt will reign supreme? Then in the Lounge, it's a double dose of interviews - first, live from the Southern California Homebrewers Fest, Drew and Marshall Schott (Brülosophy) interview Kevin Baranowski about his attempt to wake everyone up at the Fest with a Sweet Stout served through a Randall stuffed with Bourbon soaked coffee beans. Then, with podcast magic, we blink our eyes and suddenly Drew swings up to the Bay Area and catches up with Nick Impellitteri about what's happening with the Yeast Bay. Finally we tackle questions we can answer. Drop a quick tip from a listener and inspired by our last Brew Files episode and Denny talks about his newest PBS obsession!

Episode 41 - Earthbound and Down  

We're loaded up and trucking right through your feedback. In the pub, we enjoy a pint or two while looking back at a big retirement, talking some new guidelines and wondering maybe we've been looking at the whole "bubble" thing wrongly. We stop in the brewery to look at Sierra Nevada's Ruthless Rye recipe and why Denny gave them a bunch of guff for it when they were making it. (Plus Drew's weird feelings about late additions of Magnum) Then in the Lounge, Denny talks to Rebecca Schranz - the Queen of Getting Shit Done- at St. Louis's Earthbound Beer about expansion, taking over an old brewery space and what happens when you find a hand to god Bat Cave in your cellar. Finally we tackle questions we can answer. Drop a quick tip on ya and Drew reveals he's deeply weird about notebooks.

Brew Files - Episode 10 - Getting Hazy with Ed  

The Brew Is Out There! STYLE SHOW On this week's episode of the Brew Files, we're exploring the controversial style of the moment - New England IPA. And since Denny spits nails about anything "hazy" and "juicy", Drew's bringing in Ed Coffey of "Ale of the Riverwards" to talk the style he's been brewing since before he knew it was a style. Together they talk about the ingredients, the hops, the flavors and of course the haze and it's meaning.

Episode 40 - The Quality of Transformation  

New opening to the show this time through. Let's see how you like it (let us know!) In the pub, we stop by and take about brewery charities and one in particular for Denny's area. We talk about one previous guest's new "kid" rules and the response, before we tackle the big Wicked news of the week and the really insidious piece that virtually no one is talking about behind the scenes. We stop in the brewery to talk the latest malt report from our good friend Teri Fahrendorf and Denny reminices about the good old cow and hog reports of his youth. In the lab, we announce our latest experiment - the IGORs are taking a stab at the Brulosophy gang's Biotransformation ale - aka can you tell a difference between a beer dry hopped at high krausen and one dry hopped in secondary. Of course, we're adding an extra special twist to the whole thing because we're required to by law. Twist one, testing two different strains with some IGORs pulling out Wyeast 1318 and some pulling Wyeast 1056. Twist two - we're going to have some visually blind trials vs visual trials. Woo... Then in the Lounge, Denny talks to Jessica Davis of the Bruery about what it means to do QA work for a brewery with as many on going projects as they have. It's seriously interesting to learn what it means to work in the beer world and be tasked with keeping an eye on things Finally we tackle questions we can answer. Drop a quick tip on ya and explore just why Drew wants to subject one of his chihuahuas to dangerous acrobatics.
