I enjoyed this article from Eater on women in the brewing industry, perspectives on marketing, and general visibility in the scene.
This is a very cool article on a yeast being used in Norway which is just now being catalogued and shared among the brewing scientists.
I think that when stuff like this comes up and can be not only preserved but shared, that’s awesome.
There are a lot of reasons why I’m interested in the environment and protecting it. This bit from Guardians of the Galaxy probably sums it up best though:
Rocket Raccoon: Why would you want to save the galaxy?
Peter Quill: Because I’m one of the idiots who lives in it!
Which brings me to the history of this man, who spent a lifetime researching strains of barley , at first to help diversify the kinds of malt available to brewers but through his life to help diversify…well, everything.
It’s a pretty cool history and I hope the protection of the environment continues because…well, I’m one of the idiots who needs it.
Also, happy National Beer Day! Because why not?
Human beings are…weird.
Part of that weirdness comes from sheer creative possibilities, you know?
Like using a wood chipper to help make your beer…
I have wasted my education, I suppose. Because someone gets to do this for money.
Which is pretty cool but man, lost opportunities…
I mean, look at how much fun this guy is having…
Then again, I am not a famous rugby player so perhaps not.
I liked this video on beer glasses-and a bit of glassware history, too. It doesn’t really provide recommendations on which glass helps which kind of style but it’s a fun watch nonetheless.
