This is a great podcast if you want to understand what’s under the hood of you favorite brewery and the American beer scene. John is a masterful interviewer with a curious mind that brings out the best insights, stories, and sidebars from his guests.
Makes beer better
I’ve been listening to John for years on his other podcast Steal This Beer and I’m beyond happy to add this one into the mix. John is arguably the best beer journalist on the planet. He brings a really down to earth personality to his interviews and makes you appreciate all the aspects of this industry. Must listen if you’re a fan of craft beer and all that it includes.
Always learn something
I listen to John Holl on this podcast, Steal this Beer and when he appears with Andy on Beer Edge. I appreciate his gentle and thoughtful style and I feel like I always get a chance to learn something from interesting people. For less buttoned-down John, listen to Steal This Beer, but I’m happy to listen to both.
