Charlie Bamforth, A.K.A Dr. Bubbles, joins us once again on this episode of The Session. Last we spoke to Charlie, he was just about to go into retirement from the UC Davis Brewing Science Program. However, that hasn't slowed Charlie down one bit! The doctor has two books on the way, including In Praise Of Beer, which is available for pre-order now. He's also been consulting for the legendary Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, writing about football (the real kind, he says), and keeping a close eye on the beer industry he's been working in for over 30 years.

Later in the show, we get a visit from some Brewcasters that we haven't heard from in quite some time. Tune in and end 2019 Brewing Network style in this episode of The Session!

Rank #15: The Session | Live From Russian River

Podcast cover
Read more

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...

This week on The Session we welcome The Ale Apothecary from Bend, OR. Paul Arney, Founder and Brewmaster, joins us to talk about his cottage brewery in the hills, and the very unique style of brewing that he employs. The brewery is built on his own property, where he lives, and he has chosen to take a slower, more historic approach to producing his slow ales, that are often sour, always complex, and very very good. Tune in and learn about his brew system that seems to be comprised almost entirely of wood barrels and how each of his beers takes on a two year life of its own before finding it's way into his honey infused bottles. Learn about his entirely local raw material sourcing and much, much more.

Rank #19: 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.

Podcast cover

The Session welcomes back Marshall Schott from the insanely popular Brulosophy blog! Normally, he sends us one beer to try on the show, but this time he fired out two, which is great for us because we get extra beer. One was part of his Hop Chronicles series, taking a single hop and trying to get some ultra-detailed information on flavor and aroma, and the other was the classic triangle tests we have done a few times before. We always learn something when Marshall is on, and this show was no exception.
