On this pre-Turkey Day here in the US, we found ourselves back in Portland in this episode and we're at a brewery right up Drew's alley!
We start in the pub with a brief discussion of what fine beers we'll be supping on while we're stuffing ourselves silly. We also look at some charity from No-Li Brewing, a rather "innovative" beer addition to the Not Your Father's lineup and Mike Tonsmiere's Kveik experiments.
In the brewery, we examine the speciality malt market and what it means for the tide of craft beer styles from a global perspective and Drew talks about revisiting one of his favorite projects from the past with White Labs Zurich Lager strain.
In the lounge, we visit with Sean Burke at Common's Brewing where we explore their farmhouse centric approach and how they grew into a beautiful space with strange equipment.
For a quick tip, we share a brief note on using Hop Extracts efficiently and cleanly. (And what not to do with them!)
We tackle more of your questions in our Q&A segment before closing you out with two of Drew's latest finds - HBO's Westworld and a Beastie Boys / Daft Punk Mashup that is pretty damn awesome.
