Behind the Beer with Justin Crossley

June 23, 2023

Get behind the beer and behind the scenes with Justin Crossley from The Brewing Network! For the past 18 years Justin has been behind the scenes at nearly every American Homebrewers Association (AHA) event. From working closely with each organization on the AHA Governing Committee, to hosting and moderating countless interviews and panels, Justin has seen it all. Join us for a walk “backstage” as he tells us about how Zymurgy influenced his career, which brewers have inspired him the most, and how he’s seen this hobby and industry grow exponentially over the years.

The Brewing Network

Justin Crossley is the founder of The Brewing Network (BN) and The Hop Grenade Taproom and the host of the podcast, The Session. He began his career in terrestrial radio, but quickly realized that program directors tend to shun drinking on the job. He founded the BN to share his love of radio and beer and is known as the one person who can talk the most about beer, without actually knowing anything about it.
