Are you experienced, IPA drinker? Prepare to have your IPA world made more Eclectic as Drew sits talks with the legendary Dick Cantwell about his new book, Eclectic IPA. Together we take a look at where IPA came from, where it is and where Dick thinks it's going. Yes, we even talk about the haze and somehow, improbably, smoked peaches. Who knew? Elsewhere, we tackle water quality, diastaticus and your feedback on the cryo experiment (and let you know what's coming next!).

The Brew is Out There! 

This week, as summertime rapidly approaches, so does the need for more beer! Every time we turn around, there's another party, festival, weekend in need of some sudsy love. On this episode we'll walk you through our tips about how to speed up your brew day and shorten the amount of time it takes to go from grain to happy foamy glasses.

Sit back, and rest up, we're going to get speedy!



Sit back and relax, it's getting frosty in here! On this episode of the podcast, we breakdown the results of our Cryo/T-90 experiment. And since the results were so "weird" - we brought in some extra help in the form of some of the IGORs who helped with the podcast including Brad Macleod, Eric Pierce and Miguel Loza Brown. Together we talk what went right (and sometimes what went wrong with the brew days) and what we all thought of the Cryo beers (including some numbers courtesy of White Labs).

And then in the lounge, Drew sits down with Joshua M. Bernstein, author of the newly released Homebrew World about the stories you find when you talk to homebrewers around the world.

And of course we also cover the whole wide world of beer news, talk about some brewing adventures, answer some questions, drop a little British Museum on you before we get you back to the world.


The Brew is Out There! 

This week, Denny and Drew look back at 100 episodes of the show. What have we learned? What have our IGORs learned? And if you stick around to the very end, we'll give you our four ultimate lessons about how to make a good beer! 100 down! Who knows how many more to go!


We're still in New Zealand, but this time we're joined by Denny's better half as she walks us through her experience exploring the beers of New Zealand. What stories did she discover about the breweries (and her thought about their IPAs)? And then Denny hits the fields to discover how hop research is carried out in New Zealand! IN the pub, it's all the news fit to drink to, including Denny's anniversary and ABI's impact on homebrewing. In the library we cover some great recipes from Jester King before talking about a new IPA style and why people are confusing it for something Belgian, a little science tease and of course a quick tip and Denny's new cooking obsession.

Looking for deals on hops?  These guys have great quality.


The Brew is Out There! 

This week, Drew sits down with Kip Barnes of LA Ale Works in Hawthorne, CA to talk about his experiments running a professional brewery while holding onto his homebrewer spirit. In that vein, we talk about using a cool ship for his next "odd" beer.


Denny's back from New Zealand and boy, the stories he has to tell! And of course, we're back to our usual format - thank you for sticking with us as we planned our way around absences and April Fool's day. In this episode, we cover a rough few weeks in the beer world and some new guidelines for everyone to argue over, look at some lambic myths, Drew's stupid brew day and Denny's recap of the New Zealand Homebrewer's Conference including their unique competition format before we hit the hop fields to learn some New Zealand hop secrets. All of that plus we answer your questions, hit you with a hot tip and hotter wings too!

Homebrew Con 2018 / Party time at HBC!

Brewcraft USA is hosting a conference kick off party in conjunction with Experimental Brewing.  It's gonna happen Wed. evening (6/27) before the conference, at Culmination Brewing - 2117 NE Oregon St., about a mile from the convention center where the conference is happening.  There will be collaboration beers from 3 Portland breweries, food trucks, prize giveaways, and Drew and me...OK, you can skip that last one if you want to.  Party starts at 6 PM and runs until 9n or 10 PM.  Admission is free, and you can buy raffle tickets to win prizes!  Hope to see you there.


We're back to the world of historic German beer and this time, Andreas is busting out the research from his book (see link below) to talk through the differences between Bavarian beer and the brown beers of Northern Germany and just what happened to them!


It's back - it's science time! But first... we hit the feedback back, talk about some elections and other beer news - including Sierra Nevada's throwback beer move and the new beer style that's got people up in arms. In the library we discuss whether or not Prohibition was a good thing for beer and why American versions of British beers seem to fall short - according to the Brits. In the brewery, Drew discusses a very cool charity he just worked with and YCHops sets the record straight on the hop glut. In the lab, we look at the hot hop topic of BioTransform from the results of our IGORs. In the lounge, we sit down with Brad Ring from BYO to discuss their boot camp format before we close out with the Q's & the A's, quick tip and say goodbye to one of the best actors Denny ever got to work with.


The Brew is Out There! 

The Olympics may be over, but that doesn't mean we're not still pursuing our dreams of winning medals in our favorite sport. To help you get onto the podium, we sit down and talk with Nick Corona of QUAFF and the 2016 American Homebrewers Association's Homebrewer of the Year. He talks his way of planning his entries and the subtle strategy of style choice.
