PODCAST: Salute to Charlie Papazian, the godfather of homebrewing, with craft beer tastings and news
It's another small batch podcast from Home Brew Rock Stars where we dive in short form and discuss the Papazian influence on home brewing and celebrate Charlie's retirement! It wasn’t just Papazian’s expertise that he had honed since that first homebrewing experience in in 1970, that resonated with readers. It was also his light and humorous tone, making learning about homebrewing fun, peppered by those words became a kind of catchphrase for Papazian, “Relax. Don’t worry. Have a homebrew”.
The crew also talks beer news regarding MillerCoors bailing out on the Beer Alliance after Bud Light’s Corn Syrup Ads during the Super Bowl. Hey, either you put corn syrup in your beer, or you put rice in it...who cares. The gist is the beer alliance was supposed to be a big effort to compete with the 11 billion servings the big beer companies lost to wine and spirits last year. OUCH!...that might take some healing. (just rub corn syrup on it)
We sample some craft beer from Pig Minds' Southy Bitch Slap, now in the cans, and a delish double IPA w/Sorachi Ace Hops from Pipeworks called Just Drink Dummy, and not to forget Kent's very impressive Brown Ale as he finally gets the brew set up back up and running from a recent move.
Finally, we sample some rock stars from the music world called Trapper Schoeppand the Shades
A hearty SQUEAL to Pig Minds Brewing Co. and Artele & Co. for their awesome support and sponsorship! #drinkitup
