Episode 39 - Tanning in St. Somewhere

drew's picture

In the pub we congratulate our new members of the  Governing Committee; explore what we think of the Brewer's Association recent announcement regarding sexist beer names and celebrate the sort of beery fool hardiness that lead one "intrepid" soul to attempt a beer half-marathon.

In the lab, we take a piece of feedback from a listener about what we did wrong with our BrewTan announcement and then, like a dog with a bone to worry, we decide to revist the results thanks to some new IGOR reports and watch how the numbers change. We'll discuss new directions that we want to explore as well.

Then in the Lounge we visit one of Drew's favorite brewers - Bob Sylvester of St. Somewhere Brewing in Tarpon Springs, FL. Learn just why we have a photo of a pump and a skateboard in the show notes and just how Bob produces "Florida terrior" and what measures he took to preserve it when the brewery moved. 

Finally we tackle questions we can answer. Drop a quick tip on ya and explore Drew's new found home companion

Thanks for Speaking Out!

Thanks Denny and Drew. It's awesome to hear someone with so much respect in the homebrewing community speak out against sexism in the beer industry. I've stopped listening to several popular homebrewing podcasts and supporting their sponsors because the way they peddle in predictable, sexist garbage is just not something I can get behind. I understand that people have the right to say whatever they want or name a beer something uncreative, sexist and dumb. That's fine. I have the right to spend my money at breweries and homebrew supply shops that don't marginalize women.

Thank you for listening

It's like I've said multiple times on the podcast - my default operating principle is "is it kind". I've laughed at stupid sexist crap in the past but now a days I just find it pointless and needless. 

I just want everyone to be comfortable celebrating the beer thing, because it's pretty damn awesome!
