This week Doug and Tony discuss some of the different approaches to packaging beer from label art to designer kegs as well as some of the ways science is becoming a higher-profile part of the craft beer culture.
Introducing a new(ish) podcast
Since Tony does a bunch of brewery industry interviews anyway, he thought he would record them and play them back here. This is the first in a series. Our hope is to put on out each Thursday to complement the main BWS podcast
Please check out our new interview show. This week we talk art, beer and festivals with Ryan Telle of Fordham and Dominion Brewing.
I’m not nuts about “Q&A” style stories that are basically a transcript of the conversation. That said, if you are brave enough to wade through this epic you’ll see that some brewers made a keg that looks like a Star Wars droid. It doesn’t look too difficult, but I’ll leave that to you to decide.
Poorly written and executed. But for our homebrew friends who want to add an arts and crafts component to their kegs…
Increasingly, beers are moving closer to the East Coast to get fresh beer to people who prefer their beer that way. It’s still more than 100 miles from us, but still, it’s pretty cool to see them growing wisely (if that’s what they’re doing).
