This polished and professionally-produced show has expert brewing advice coupled with frat house humor - what's not to love? The hosts are awesome, the guests are at the top of their game, and the interviews are first rate. I've listened to the others and this one is by FAR the best.

The Session | Live From Russian River

Podcast cover

The Session crew heads up to Windsor, CA to broadcast live from the all new Russian River Brewing Company! Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo invited us to their spectacular new brewery for a day of tours, fun and incredible beer. To round out the day, we set up in the entirely unique, and so so cool, Koelschip room. Vinnie and Natalie custom built this room to create spontaneously fermented beer, and even filled it with wort that day so that one day in the future (maybe 2-3 years) we will have a Brewing Network, spontaneously fermented, Koelschip beer!

Tune in and learn all about the new brewery and so much more. Plus, one of our favorite parts of the day was when we made Beardy do a blind taste test of a Russian River hazy beer AND a Russian River clear beer. After all the comments about his dislike of the hazy style, tune in and find out if he can really taste the difference...

The Session 11-23-15 Hop Selection and Quality

Podcast cover
Read more

Hops are still one of the most important ways to add a unique signature and complexity to a beer. Unfortunately hops are also one of the most variable ingredients, especially in the homebrew supply channels. Unlike craft brewers, the homebrewer is not going to Yakima to do selection! The homebrewer has less control. In this episode of The Session, Nathan Smith helps us discuss how to stay on target and find quality knowing that hops are highly variable. We investigate and discuss what we can do to identify the variables when it comes to deciding how to select and use hops, how to limit those variables, and how to adapt and be flexible when you cannot have ideal control over the variables. We're also joined by The Homebrew Chef, Sean Z. Paxton, to help us learn about ways to beer up our Thanksgiving menus.
