From books on the subject to website articles, there’s a lot of great detailed information and approaches to designing beer recipes from scratch. That said, it’s pretty complicated stuff. After reviewing some of my favorite sources on this subject, I thought it might be helpful to see if I could sift the best parts in hopes of providing brewers with a simplified approach to beer recipe designing. There…

            Beer City, USA. While many places around the country lay claim to being the capital of craft beer, Grand Rapids has held that honorary nickname since 2013. What’s impressive is that since that time, they have more than doubled the number of breweries in the city! This was one place that I needed to check off my list, and it absolutely lived up to the hype, and in many ways exceeded it. It seemed that every place I went had good to great beer,…

When I first started on my beer journey, I wasn’t sure where it would take me. At the time all I knew was that I wanted to get my hands on as many new and exciting beers as I could. I was hooked and needed more. Since then, my outlook has changed. Not that I don’t want to try new beers (I don’t think that will ever be the case!) but more that I want to be more involved with the craft community. At the…

"The laws in Venezuela were always the same. If you produce less than 24 thousand liters of beer a year you are not recognized by law. In this difficult economic situation, it is difficult for many to comply with that number. We would love a legal milestone where we could operate paying taxes according to our capacity. That would be an ideal world."

Traditional Adnams Brewing (Southwold, England) collaborates with new breweries from America. When I started drinking Adnams beers in the mid 1980’s, the brewery was already over 100 years old. It was one of three regional breweries in the county of Suffolk in East Anglia, England, and it had a proud local reputation. In fact it had won national and even international awards in the 1950’s. At that time it was very much a traditional brewery. Much has changed since then, with Adnams recently having collaborated…

Indianapolis. The “Crossroads of America” is probably best known as the home of the largest auto racetrack in the world and being the capital of the basketball-crazed Hoosier State. But in the last decade, there has been an influx of quality craft breweries, especially on the eastern side of downtown. I was able to take in eight of the breweries in the area during our weekend visit, so I will select a few of my favorites. This will also be one of my rare editions…

Shadowing the head brewer for a day, Guardian Brewing Saugatuck, MI It seems most homebrewers I know fantasize of going pro, brewing in a real commercial brewery. The fantasy centers around brewing on a large scale, professional system with giant mash tuns, boil kettles and fermenters.  In the interest of education, my new friend, Kim Collins owner & head brewer at Guardian Brewing, graciously allowed me to indulge my fantasy…well sort of. She was nice enough to let me shadow her on a “typical” brew…

Disclaimer: I am specifically personalizing this with no intention to persuade you (the reader) to agree with me or to do what I do. I am simply using myself as an example.   I’ve been pondering about how craft beer drinkers make decisions on which beers they drink and which beers they won’t. The reasons are likely more numerous to count so I thought I would talk about five reasons. These are based on Twitter interactions with hundreds of people who drink craft beer. I…
