Defining Craft Beer with Pete Brown

Beer Sessions Radio (TM)

This week on Beer Sessions Radio, Jimmy welcomes Pete Brown from London to talk about his newest book, Craft: An Argument. As some breweries and guilds lean into descriptors like “independent breweries,” “good beer,” or “micro-breweries,” Pete makes the case for why craft still has meaning. His book was written in quarantine and draws on a wide range of resources from Garrett Oliver to Michael Jackson and even Descartes. Toronto-based beer writer, Stephen Beaumont joins the conversation as well, along with B.R. Rolya of Shelton Brothers. Together they talk about the meaning of craft beer to breweries internationally, discuss draft versus cans, and talk about some of the biggest beer sales that have called the meaning of craft into question. Beer List:Godspeed Brewer, Ikinuki Fifth Hammer Brewing, Piñata BeBOPImage courtesy of www.petebrown.net.Heritage Radio Network is a listener supported nonprofit podcast network.

Craft: Why the term is completely undefinable, hopelessly misunderstood and absolutely essential [with Pete Brown]

Hop Forward: Getting You Ahead in the Brewing and Beer Business

Craft… was there ever such a word in the English dictionary that has divided opinion in the world of beer as the C word.For some, it defines what it means to be a small, independent brewer.For others, it symbolises a revolt against the globalisation of big business and putting profits before people.While for others, it’s the smaller beer selection in their local supermarket with all the colourful cans on, sandwiched between the cases of Carlsberg to the left and the bottles Black Sheep to the right.According to Pete Brown, it is a term that is completely undefinable, hopelessly misunderstood and absolutely essential.In our discussion, we discuss everything from terminology, brewery buyouts, why independence is such a hotly contested topic in the world of beer, and how everyone plays into the hands of marketing in one way, shape or form.---BREWERY SHOUTOUTSWild Card Brewery - Wild Card Brewery has released a new batch of their seventh beer as a part of International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day.
