11033
We dropped our usual Christmas show in favor of some homebrew education! Jamil came down from Heretic and joined Alex from Fieldwork and Beardy as we sat around talking about collaboration brews.

Then we got into the details of actually crafting a recipe on the air – what ingredients to use and why, what parameters to hit, etc. At the end, we got a pretty killer stout recipe out of it, which is our holiday gift to you! Brew it and tell us about it! We also played a new game called, “Spread ‘Em!” Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Daniel Addey-Jibb, co-owner and brewer at Le Castor joins us for The Session on this episode. Located about 40 minutes outside of Montreal, Quebec, Dan and his team brew some really amazing farmhouse beers for those lucky enough to find them. Many are aged and bottled with Brett, giving them even more complexity than normal. His core style seems to be Saison, but he switches it up by adding different ingredents, such as Grapefruit zest and cracked peppercorns, sour cherries, oak - all of which are Brett-finished. The beers were great, and Dan was very generous with his time and beer. Then our friends from FourPure out in London happened to be in the studio, and shared their "juicy" IPA with us - which was not cloudy and soupy at all and we thanked them profusely for this.

It's a weird show today, folks! A great, weird, wonderful show - our longtime friend Phil Lowry came all the way out from England to chat with us about what's going on in the beer scene across the world. Phil has been in the industry for around 20 years, doing everything from brewing to selling beer and hops to serving it to the public. The man has loads of insight into craft beer and he brought a literal box load of beers along for us to drink as well. In addition, he brought along Chris who brews at a brewery called Pohjala in Estonia, who brought many of his beers for us to try. Loads of dark beers, barrel aged, and super well-balanced. So not only did we get to drink some amazing beers that we can't find out here, but we learned loads about the new hot spots of craft beer around the world, like South Africa and Estonia if you can believe it, as well as some new hop names to be on the lookout for. It was a real fun show to run, and Phil and Chris could each have anchored their own show with the amount of information they gave out. Perhaps the best part of the evening was finding someone tinier than Doc! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Session 11-23-15 Hop Selection and Quality
10705
Hops are still one of the most important ways to add a unique signature and complexity to a beer. Unfortunately hops are also one of the most variable ingredients, especially in the homebrew supply channels. Unlike craft brewers, the homebrewer is not going to Yakima to do selection! The homebrewer has less control. In this episode of The Session, Nathan Smith helps us discuss how to stay on target and find quality knowing that hops are highly variable. We investigate and discuss what we can do to identify the variables when it comes to deciding how to select and use hops, how to limit those variables, and how to adapt and be flexible when you cannot have ideal control over the variables. We're also joined by The Homebrew Chef, Sean Z. Paxton, to help us learn about ways to beer up our Thanksgiving menus. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
