Randy Mosher is an authoritative voice in beer but he’s still a student at heart. As an author, brewer, and consultant, he’s continuously looking to work with new ingredients, reconsider off-flavors, and try new brewing methods. In a wide-ranging conversation, Mosher talks about the importance of homebrewing and what it means for the future of beer as well as what many of us miss when tasting.

With six GABF medals and four World Beer Cup medals under his belt (in categories ranging from Pilsner to stout to IPA), La Cumbre Brewing Company’s Jeff Erway has built a reputation as a perfectionist and outspoken proponent of brewing quality. He’s both a traditionalist and an iconoclast, depending on the style, occasion, or issue—not afraid to break a few eggs, but deeply respectful of the history and tradition of brewing. In this conversation, he discusses building a malt base for IPAs, creating color with malts other than caramel malts, promoting stability of hops aromas through whirlpool and hop back hopping, the impacts of lower temperatures in hops processing on hops performance in the brewhouse, managing refermentation after dry hopping, hops evaluation and blending, and his joy in beating some of the world’s biggest lager producers at their own game with his gold-medal-winning BEER light lager. “There are some styles that I’ll take a great deal of artistic license with, and there are those that I will not,” says Erway. “I’m going to take a lot more artistic license with an 8% alcohol hazy double IPA than I am with a Pilsner.”

Adam Avery of Avery Brewing has seen a lot of cycles in craft beer over his past 26 years in business, and is bullish on the future. “There’s still a lot of blue sky out there.” Still, the best he can do is react to where he is and what the market is, right now. “Who would have thought that there would be 7500 breweries. If you had told me that five years ago, would I have built this brewery? I don’t know. I can’t go back in time. My crystal ball was cloudy on that aspect.” In this conversation, he candidly discusses issues of authenticity and production in a brewing world where shared resources are on the rise, the drastically shortened reaction time to market cycles and trends, the rise of non-alcoholic and “better for you” beer, their shifting approach to barrel-aged beers, how he defines the idea of “craft” in a way that differs from some others, and more. “Your beers are alive, and they should always be changing for the better.”

We’re catching up with Marc Rauschmann the brewmaster of Germany’s BraufactuM, talking about the misconceptions of and pushing the boundaries of the Reinheitsgebot. The craft beer renaissance was late coming to Bavaria, but now brewers are mixing old traditions with new ones and the results are surprising. There’s even the novel concept (in Germany at least) of putting IPA in a can. Think you know German beer? This conversation might challenge those notions.

Lafayette, Colorado’s Odd13 was one of the first breweries west of the Mississippi to take hazy IPAs into the world of production and distribution, launching Codename Superfan in 2015. In the years since, they’ve continued to experiment with variations on the style, and have learned much in the process. In this episode, they discuss effective ways of using cryohops, controlling polyphenol burn from high dry hopping loads, the impacts of certain hops varieties on the expression of burn, the impact of specific hops on dry hops-induced additional fermentation (aka hops creep), building base malt grist bills for pale ales, IPAs, and double IPAs, and lessons learned while kettle souring.

Even with all the progress craft beer has made over the decades there are still boundaries to break and stigmas to change. Lazy Magnolia Brewery in Mississippi has been on the forefront of those fights in the south since it first opened.

Cerebral Brewing’s Sean Buchan knows what he likes to brew, and isn’t afraid to say it. The Denver, Colorado brewer’s approach to progressive styles like hazy and sour IPA, fruited kettle sour, and pastry stout would seem purely trendy if it weren’t for their equal love of Brettanomyces-fermented saison and wood-aged lager. In this episode, he discusses everything from designing processes around hops creep to the rise of Sabro hops to fermenting lagers in foeders and their embrace of the nascent tiki IPA style.

Tucked away in an industrial corner of Brooklyn, New York’s Other Half Brewing has become known as a leader of the brewing new-school with intensely flavorful and creative beers that crowds turn out for on a weekly basis. But cofounder Sam Richardson takes a methodical approach to these genre-bending flavor explorations, employing a discipline learned from years of paying his dues at production breweries from West coast to East. In this conversation about everything from hazy IPAs to pastry stouts, Richardson discusses the importance of aroma, how ingredient quality impacts finished beer, the impact of time on beer character, and more.

Thinking about most of their beers as a triangle, Jason Synan and Mike Renganeschi the brewers behind Hudson Valley Brewery, want to focus on acidity, hops, and botanicals. However, each characteristic doesn’t play the traditional role in their beers that one might expect, and that’s exactly how the brewers want it. Here they discuss their IPAs and how they blend down from an acidic beer base, going strong with botanicals, and using hops that convey more than just bitterness.
