Brew Files – Episode 1 – BVIP and Springtime in Amarillo

The Brew Is Out There!
What's this? What's this? It's a new show from us! The Brew Files is our quick hit (~30 minutes) show dedicated to a specific brewing topic. No news, new extraneous guffawing and jawing – one topic, all beer, let's do this. Every week will tackle particular recipes, styles, techniques or ingredients.
For our inaugural episode, we each break down one of our favorite recipes and explore the why's, wherefores and how's of each. Where did they come from? What have they become and what did we learn when we made them.
Denny tackles one recipe everyone knows him for – the much beloved Denny's Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter. Why did he first make the recipe? Why does he skip the oak and go straight for the whiskey?
Drew walks everyone through his hybrid American Saison – Springtime in Amarillo. Learn what beer gave birth to the recipe and what twists and changes it's gone through over time and how often it still shows up in the brew schedule.
