GBM 144 - Mindfulness and Alcohol Free with Meagen Anderson
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton
5M ago
Craft beer was meant to be better, to create an artisanal experience out of flavor, history, and culture. But sometimes, we overindulge and lose sight of what brought us here. My next guest reminds us that, for a great experience, mindful drinking is mandatory, but alcohol is optional. We find great experiences at the intersection of craft and culture. These are the stories of us, of great food and the beer that brings it all together. For the Craft and Culture of Beer, this is episode 144 of Good Beer Matters with Certified Cicerone and AFicioNAdo founder, Meagen Anderson. Show Links AFicoNAd ..read more

GBM 142 - On Beer, Pubs, and Mental Health, with Emma Inch
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton
6M ago
We can travel nearly anywhere to have a pint with locals. But there’s one place we often find ourselves, a place where no-one else can go. This episode is about the experience we have in our mind, and the state of our mental health within the context of beer.  If we’re sick we go to a doctor. If we’re injured, a physical therapist. When we want to perform better, we see a coach. Addressing our mental health and our mental fitness ought to be the same. Good beer may have little to do with this, but it’s a great way to get the conversation started.  We find great experiences at the in ..read more

GBM 141 - The Story and the Beer of Belgium, with Breandán Kearney
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton
6M ago
Belgium holds one of the richest beer cultures in the world. But, with a history and culture as diverse as theirs, beer is only the beginning. My next guest is a master storyteller who guides us even deeper into the world beyond the beer we already know and love.    Because I haven’t yet traveled to Belgium myself, It’s easy for me to make assumptions about the culture based on my experience with the beer. But, we must remember that beer can serve as a tool and a doorway. It’s not designed to answer questions. It’s meant to elicit them.   We find great experiences at the inters ..read more

GBM 140 - Where to Find Good Beer in Italy, with Luca Giaccone
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton

Italy is best known for their culinary and wine traditions that extend thousands of years, not beer. But that’s the point. Imagine what they can do when they include great beer. My next guest guides us to that inflection point when good beer meets a culture known for its flavor. I’m fortunate to have enjoyed the Italian dining experience. The preparation, the slow cooking, the attention to flavor, and long conversations that last for hours. These are special occasions… the memorable experiences that somehow change the trajectory of our lives for the better. I invite you to gather your loved o ..read more

GBM 139 - The Thing About Beer Travel, with Dr. Ruth Berman
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton

Long ago a side trip to a pub while traveling was enough. Now, squeezing in a side trip to a museum while Beer Traveling is commonplace. My next guest is one of these people who put Beer Travel on the map, and she wants to share with us just how wonderful it is.  Not everyone can easily travel abroad. For some, it’s a bit of a luxury. But, unlike other luxuries, travel is an investment in your experience and your lifelong perspective. No matter how far you can go, my wish for you is just to go and seek out your Beer Travel destination.  We find great experiences at the intersection ..read more

GBM 138 - Craft Beer in the Great White North, with Brad Goddard of Big Rock Brewery
Good Beer Matters

Canada is known for many cool things, especially beer. But, I’ve never been there and I don’t know much about it other than what I see in the movies. So, I asked my next guest to give us a tour of the craft and the culture of beer in Canada.  I’m always amazed that despite whatever differences we may perceive between us and other people, we are also so much alike. Beer happens to be one of those wonderful things that get us to slow down long enough to remember this. Thanks to Brad Goddard for the reminder.  We find great experiences at the intersection of craft and culture. These ar ..read more

GBM 137 - The Craft of El Salvador with Head Brewer Bernardo Francisco Sequiera Delgado

by Jeremy Storton

In a previous episode we explored craft beer in latin America. However, it focused on places that are hot spots for American expatriates and global vacationers. In this episode, my next guest guides us through a taste of Latin American Craft Beer from the perspective of the locals.   At the end of a long day or a long week I prefer to unwind with people I love, to have an interesting conversation, a great meal, and a good beer. We don’t have to travel to El Salvador to put the focus on the people, the place or the moment, but it helps.  We find great experiences at the intersection ..read more

GBM 136 - The Thing About Norwegian Beer, with Sindre Ingebrigtsen
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton

I’ve never been to Norway. And honestly, I know very little about it. But I find that a curious mind is the key to exploring new beers, new cultures, and new friends. A beer and a question opened the door to my next guest, who guides us through the beer culture of Norway.  Every culture has a beer culture, even the ones who aren’t known for their beer. This is because every country has beer, and every beer can open a door to a world we haven’t experienced before. Keep your mind curious, grab yourself a beer and a bite to eat, and go explore.  We find great experiences at the inters ..read more

GBM 135 - Culture, Civilization, and Getting Drunk, with Professor Ted Slingerland
Good Beer Matters
by Jeremy Storton

Why do we humans crave alcohol so much? Is it the flavor, the effect, or both? What purpose could this possibly serve for our evolution and our culture? My next guest is a professor and author who has answered all these questions. So, grab a beer, and let’s get to class. I tell people that beer is something no-one needs, but everyone wants. Would you agree? I don’t condone abusing alcohol, but it does serve a purpose. So how do we find the sweet spot of benefit over burden and quality over quantity? Moderation is the common answer. What’s yours? We find great experiences at the intersection of ..read more
