For every passion and hobby, there is a podcast (or so I imagine). Beer is no exception. Ranging from casual to more academic and technical in nature, there’s a beer podcast out there for everyone. I personally, enjoy the following:
Home Brewing Radio: Hosted by Brad Smith, the creator of BeerSmith Home Brewing Software. Informative discussions of all aspects of the beer world with a wide range of guests. The knowledge in the minds of both Mr. Smith and each guest is enough to make my brain hurt.
The Perfect Pour Craft Beer Podcast: Two lively guys in California discussing beer, being silly, and drinking good beer. Feels more like a morning-zoo show, but definitely entertaining.
The Coolship Podcast: Co-hosted by Warren Wilson (owner of Homebrew University in Hackettstown, NJ) and Siebel Institute-educated owner and head-brewer of Czig Meister Brewing, Matt Czigler. Matt Czigler, you know- the creator of Kane’s Head High IPA. Dedicated to all things beer for amateurs, professionals, and beer lover alike, these two provide excellent “edutainment.” They occasionally go off the rails, so I’d caution that this show might be rated R for language and content. Regardless, it’s a fun ride.
