Rank #1: #19 Bad yeast! Bad!

Podcast cover
Read more

You’re done all you can to make a decent beer, but then the calls start coming in. Pubs are complaining that your cans look like they’re ready to explode. Drinkers are complaining that your beer tastes awful. Another said when they opened the can, all the beer shot out like a geyser.

Chances are, you’re dealing with an unwanted yeast. In this episode we’ll be talking with yeast experts Brian Gibson and Kristoffer Krogerus of the Technical Research Centre of Finland. One of their specialties is diastaticus yeast and they’ll be telling us why it seems to hit the craft beer industry more than the big players, legal problems it can cause, and about an easy to use tester with fast results that you’ll find handier than sliced bread – but isn’t available?

Rank #2: #18 Going to the dark side

Podcast cover
Read more

A good stout or porter is something beautiful to behold in your glass and in your mouth. Smooth and creamy with a wonderful balance – a dark will have you forgetting an IPA in a heartbeat as it dances across your taste buds.

Probably, no other type of beer allows a brewer to show off their abilities in creating amazing flavours, ranging from the traditional to the most exotic. 

In this episode we’ll be hearing head brewer Colin Stronge reveals his secrets in making a good dark creation, we’ll be talking about the different varieties of stouts and porters, and attempt to answer that question which has vexed mankind for centuries: What is the difference between a porter and a stout?

Rank #5: #15 Marble Brewery: Proving your worth

Podcast cover
Read more

In modern brewing, if your business has been around for more than five years you’re considered something of an industry veteran.

So for a brewery to celebrate its 22nd anniversary in 2019 is a fantastic achievement, indeed. But when see the high regard beers such as Lagonda, Manchester Bitter and Pint are held in, alongside excellent new creations from head brewer Joe Ince, that should come as no surprise.

And when Marble Brewery started life as a four-and-a-half-barrel plant at the back of much-loved Marble Arch Inn, the UK brewing landscape was markedly different than it is today.

Some breweries have come, and have breweries have gone. But in that time, Marble Brewery, under the leadership of director Jan Rodgers, has become a mainstay in the ever-changing brewing scene.

In this wide-ranging podcast, recorded at the brewery’s bar at 57 Thomas Street in Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter, the duo discuss the moving process, how it financed the expansion, Small Brewers Duty Relief and the road ahead.

Rank #7: #13 Black Iris: The secrets to marketing on a budget

Podcast cover
Read more

You might be making the best beer on the planet, but in a market that is becoming  more crowded and competitive, how are you going to get somebody to make that discovery? You have to think marketing.

While some brewers act like the word is the most obscene one out there, not fit to mention in even unpolite society, it’s the word that can save your business.

You can’t help but marvel at the ad campaigns of some of the big boys like Guinness and Carlsberg. However, here at the Brewers Journal Podcast, who we admire most are the works of those craft brewers who pull off the amazing with the budget of a McDonald’s cheeseburger. For this reason, we’re at Black Iris in Nottingham, where Alex Wilson will tell you how they’re doing it oh so well.

Rank #8: #12 Purity: Breaking the rules

Podcast cover
Read more

There are rules you play by as a craft brewer. You have an active tap room, you’re located somewhere near your customers, and the very last thing you would do are cask ales. And let’s throw into this mix, you started with home brewing never, ever, coming from a big brewer.

Don’t even bother showing the rule book to co-founder Paul Halsey and the brewing team at Purity. Located on a working farm in Warwickshire, miles away from pretty much anything, Purity is famed for their four cask ales, IPAs and – don’t tell the real-ale gang this – but they also do a cider. In this episode of the Brewers Journal Podcast, host Velo Mitrovich talks to Paul Halsey about breaking the rules, does being eco-friendly really matter, and where small breweries fatality trip-up at.

Rank #9: #11 Craft beer from Palestine

Podcast cover
Read more

In part one of a special ‘On the road’ broadcast of the Brewers Journal
podcast, we were at Jerusalem’s Shapiro brewery. In part two, host Velo
Mitrovich of Reby Media will be taking you to Taybeth Brewing Company in
Palestine.

If you were a bird with strong wings, you could fly between the two
breweries in about 10 to 15 minutes.

However, in this highly polarized part of the world, some days even a
bird would find the journey hard.

What you will be able to take away from this show is a truly
inspirational story as general director Nadine Khoury talks about Taybeth,
brewing beer in a Muslim country, and doing the world’s most complicated dance
steps getting supplies in and beer out to 30 countries.

Joining in later will be his daughter Madees, who has the distinction of
being the only female brewer in the Middle East. And, throughout it all, we’ll
be sampling way too many beers.

“Don’t let your vision of Palestine be shaped by the news,” says Nadine.
“Come visit us and see for yourself.” He has a cold one waiting for you.

Rank #10: #10 Brewing beer in the city of eternity

Podcast cover
Read more

When
you hear mention of ‘Jerusalem’, your mind instantly pictures many things which
could fill this page about a million times over, ranging from the song sung at
weddings, to King Richard the Lion Heart. Chances are though, craft beer isn’t
one of them. But, the Shapiro brothers are out to change that – and succeeding
– in a market that spells ‘CHALLENGE’ in all caps.

Wine is
king in Israel and as for beer, two major companies have had most of the market
sewn up for decades. However, Dani and Itzik Shapiro are taking them on by
making a beer that is delivering what the big boys seemed to have forgot in
Israel – beer is supposed to taste good.

In this highly amusing episode of the Brewers Journal Podcast on the Road, Dani and Itzik explain what it takes to be a brewer in Jerusalem, ranging from having to import all supplies, dealing with brewery-shutting religious holidays, to combing the hills to try to find the plant that will give you the perfect sour.  

After  you listen to this, host Velo Mitrovich says you will never again think your brewery has it tough.
