Rank #2: Imperial Irish Coffee Chocolate Milk Oatmeal Oyster Stout.
Imperial Irish Coffee Chocolate Milk Oatmeal Oyster StoutStout is a very old style of beer. It's been around since 1700's at least. The style has always been loved but it's not always been popular. The running joke is "want a knife and fork to go with your beer" is unfounded. Stout, while thick and creamy, is often lighter, smoother and more flavorful then some icky American lagers. There are many different recipes for Stout including: Irish, Imperial, Milk, Oatmeal, Chocolate, Coffee and Oyster. Some consider the Porter style to be a Stout as well as the Stout style grew out of Porter beer. Today most breweries consider the styles to be distinct. Beers on the show:Almost every kind of stout.

GBH is not a voice speaking only from the outside looking in, but rather, from the middle of some of the most rapidly changing dynamics that any U.S. industry has ever seen. The interviews go deeper and the articles work harder to balance the culture of craft beer with the businesses it supports, shifting the conversation with our readers toward the future of the industry we love and the tenacity of its ideals.
Rank #1: EP-155 Alex Kidd of Don't Drink Beer.
In craft beer, so many of the conversations we lead are less about the beer we’re drinking and more about how we identify with it, or the person who made it, or who owns that company and how that reflects back on our own self-image. Craft beer is a foggy mirror that way. And we get caught up in so many contradictions, hypocrisies and, in some cases, some serious self-hatred as a culture. Basically, we’re a consumer base and an industry ripe for satire. Today’s guest is one of the most effective in that regard, sometimes holding up that filthy mirror to the populace, other times to himself. Don’t Drink Beer is a weird website that started on the fringes and worked its way to the middle using satire and self-reflection as a way to expose some of the more insane things we do as beer makers and drinkers. The trading circuit, the line-waiting, the valuations we put on certain bottles while ignoring others, and the oft-enraging debates that start in Facebook groups and forums. Don’t Drink Beer is a persona that often catches its intended audience off guard. And sometimes plays straight into it. And after following it for years, the pattern reveals it for what it is—the evolution of a comedian. Alex Kidd, the guy behind the site, is a professional comedian. He studied and practices law in California, and as you can tell from some of his more elaborate beer reviews, he's also a studied writer, reader, and music history sponge. And describing him this way, so earnestly, just feels so wrong. He was in Chicago this past week on tour with a comedy show about beer called Barley Wine is Live, for which we’ll talk about the inspiration in the interview. But we also talk about the long history of Don’t Drink Beer and its relationship with Chicago and the Midwest, as an antagonist of sorts from the West Coast. Oh, and where all this is going, if it is, indeed, going anywhere.
Rank #2: EP-147 Bart Watson of the Brewers Association.
It’s hard to be objective when it comes to such a subjective thing like beer. We’re all driven by our own preferences and tastes mapped out by sensory experiences of flavor and aroma. Things are good and bad, sought after whales and shelf turds. Beer is an experiential good and our exposure varies on time of day, mood, company and more. But there are still plenty of cold, hard facts that factor into the social, cultural and business side of beer, which is why this week’s guest is a special one for me. Bart Watson deals with numbers. Truthful, verifiable, factual data. As one of only several economists who work within the beer industry, it’s his job to offer context and insight into what’s changing, and often, what’s to come. His logical and well-cited reason is regularly seen on the Brewers Association website and increasingly in media around the country. When some may be focusing on the hot take du jour, Bart can be found writing a blog post or interacting on Twitter with calculated answers. And it’s about beer. As the BA was preparing to kickoff the Great American Beer Festival in early October, I sat down with Bart inside the Colorado Convention Center to geek out, talking about the new challenges within the beer market, including price points, marijuana use, distribution and more. With thousands of people scurrying around the building ready to celebrate craft beer, it was exciting to take a fittingly calm moment to evaluate the state of the industry and where beer lovers should be looking in 2018. Who knew economics could be so cool?
Taking Your Microbrewery to the Next Level
Rank #1: MicroBrewr 085: Starting a brewery is a full-time job.
Cody Martin worked in civil engineering and environmental engineering. After touring some breweries and seeing that they use familiar equipment, he asked his wife if he could start a brewery. She found work in Texas and he started Martin House Brewing Company in Fort Worth, Texas. “Starting a brewery is a full-time job.” [Tweet This] After they moved back to Texas, Cody worked full-time for 15 months to start his brewery. “If you want to be a brewery in planning for 3 or 4 years,” he offers, “then go ahead and keep your job.” In that time, he worked on his business plan, found partners and investors, introduced himself to local breweries, and work 20-30 hours per week for free in a local brewery. Once the business plan was complete, they had 6 months allotted to finding investors and securing funding, and they got it done in only 6 weeks. They talked to anyone and everyone they could find or with whom they could make connections. In the end, the owners with “skin in the game” had contributed approximately $60 thousand. Investors pitched in significantly more than that, he says. Approximately half of the capital came from friends and family, and about half came from other investors whom they had never previously met. They were able to cut costs by doing the majority of the work themselves. “We literally built everything in this place ourself,” Cody remarks. It helps that Cody is an engineer. They also called on old friends who gave them discount prices on skilled work. Additionally, Cody says it very important to partner with people who compliment, rather than duplicate your own knowledge and skills. “You need to make sure you have the team with the full talents of running a business,” Cody advises, “not just 3 brewers.” Financially, it has worked well. “We have zero debt,” says Cody, “so we were able to break even on that pretty quick. A few months in, we started paying ourselves a salary. And then our first full year of production, we were able to pay our investors back a little.” Cody even had the opportunity to make a collaboration brew with one of his all-time favorite bands, Toadies. In summary, Cody’s advice for starting a brewery: Quit your job. Have the support of your family. Assemble a team with diverse skills. Don’t buy a glycol chiller from China. Brewery specs: Kettle size: 30 BBL. Size and quantity of fermentation tanks: 4, 30-BBL; 2, 60-BBL fermenters. Size and quantity of bright tanks: 1, 30-BBL; 1 60-BBL bright tanks. Annual brewing capacity/last year’s production: 6,000-BBL capacity. About 2,800 BBL last year. Square footage: 9,000 sq. ft. Years in operation: 2.5 years (opened March 2013).

Rank #2: MicroBrewr 054: Start a debt-free nanobrewery.
We all have a dream to start a brewery. Many of us don’t have the money required to start the brewery of our dreams. Lynn Jacobs and her husband, Jeff, started Great Storm Brewing in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with no debt. Best of all: They started making a profit immediately. Great Storm Brewing opened in March 2012 with a 1-BBL system. Lynn and Jeff worked hard at first. But after 6 months they hired the first employee. The success has been so great that they contract brew larger batches under “alternative proprietorship” to help meet demand. Now approaching their third anniversary, Great Storm Brewing has 8 employees and they’re preparing to install a 10-BBL system. Lynn’s advice to someone who wants to start a brewery: Save money Practice your brewing Create something you can duplicate on a larger scale Brewery specs: Kettle size: 1 BBL; in the process of expanding to 10-BBL. Size and quantity of fermentation tanks: 10, 1-BBL fermenters; expanding to 3, 15-BBL. Size and quantity of bright tanks: none; will get tanks with the new system. Annual brewing capacity/last year’s production: Current 260; last year 187; new system will be 390-BBL. Square footage: 3,750 sq. ft. Years in operation: 3 years (opened March 2012). “As soon as you reach one goal, you make another for yourself.” [Tweet This] Listener question: From Russ Neis: How do you adjust a recipe from 10 gallons to a 7 BBLs or more?

Rank #2: Episode 104: Evan Price of Green Cheek Beer Co.: Creatively Evolving West Coast IPA (and Winning!).
Since their founding in June 2017, Green Cheek Beer Co. has pulled off an impressive list of awards—a silver medal in American-style IPA at the 2018 World Beer Cup, two bronze medals at the 2018 GABF, and most recently a silver and gold (in American-style IPA and Australian-style Pale Ale) at the 2019 GABF. In this conversation, recorded a few days before Price and Green Cheek collected those 2019 medals, he goes deep on the subject of the evolving style of West coast-style IPA. From malt shifts (“Crystal malt ends up tasting like an old beer right when you make it”) to the impacts of water profiles to selecting low cohumulone hops for less aggressive bitterness, every choice matters. Price covers developing skills like translating hops aromas while rubbing into an idea of how they’ll express in a finished beer, their hops evaluation procedures, lowering whirlpool temperatures for better hot side hops character, and even discusses their strategy toward brewing for and entering competitions.
