They took Chris from knowing absolutely nothing about yeast, to knowing almost nothing. You are guaranteed to take way more from the conversation.

Episode 138 - Part 2 of Craft Beer Across the Pond

This is part 2, part 1 can be found at bit.ly/uncapped136

“A Swede, a German, and an American walk into a brewery…”

Way back on April 1 Keith Marcoux, co-founder of Olde Mother Brewing Company, sent me a text that said “Do you want to do a culture podcast with American brewers from Sweden and Germany?I know both and they are here on vaca at the same time!”. Once I figured out he wasn’t trying to pull some sort of lame April Fools joke on me I jumped at the opportunity. A few days later David Renninger (owner of Libertus Craft Brewing in Germany), Peter Lincoln (owner of Brewing Koltur in Sweden), Keith, and I met up to record an episode about craft beer culture in Sweden and Germany.
