    S2 E6 - The Future is Beer

    S2 E6 - The Future is Beer

    In the final episode of the series we look at breweries who are using their success to make waves not only in beer circles, but in their wider communities as well. We interview Brooklyn Brewery's ridiculously cool Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and BrewDog's Head of Task Force, Sarah Warman, about how these breweries are shaping the future of beer. For our final brew we take another look at beer pairing, this time designing and brewing a beer specifically to complement a particular dish.

    S2 E5 - Good Old Beer

    S2 E5 - Good Old Beer

    This one's all about old beer. Not that dodgy corner-shop can you've had kicking around at the back of your cupboard for almost a year - we mean beer that's been deliberately, lovingly looked after in a barrel, in a bottle, or both, to develop complexity and flavour. Beer Sommelier/Belgian beer expert Sofie Vanrafelghem tells us about traditional Belgian aged beers. We ask Dougal Gunn Sharp, co-founder of Innis & Gunn, how he gets the delicious flavours of oak into his beers on such a large scale. Our own brew this week is a big, boozy sherry oak chip-infused stout.

Such a great podcast

This is such a great podcast. It's so well-rounded, diving into what. makes good beer but also insights into the beer industry in the UK. They don't shy away from confronting the worst bits about beer culture. All I want to do now is brew some beer.
