Episode 46 - Chilling Out in Chile

drew's picture

It's time to swing way South of the Border and head to Chile with Denny as he attends the 2nd Annual South American Cup in Santiago, but first we look at your canning feedback. In the pub, we sit down with a couple of special beers (and Drew gets to be right!), talk about Ostrich boot based silliness, bootleggers in Peru (Indiana) and what the new model of acquisitions seems to be currently with Lagunitas buying part of Shorts and Brooklyn, 21A and Funkwerks teaming up. 

In the library, we take a swing around Dr. Charlie Bamforth's recent speech in Australia about Craft Beer and the things he thinks brewers really need to be focusing on. While in the Brewery we talk about the upcoming Green Hop extravanganza from YCH Hops.

And then in the lounge, we sit back and listen to Denny's memories of his trip to Chile and we even hop in the back of a crowded vehicle shepharding Denny to the foot of the Andes mountains and Tübinger Brewery in the middle of some of the world's premier wine country. While there Denny talks with Chris Flaskamp about the brewery and his beers.

Finally we race over Q&A because hey - you should be getting us questions for Episode 48!

But we do take a moment to hit a quick tip about saving your beer for review and Drew drops two things in Something Other - a podcast about interviewing (The Turnaround with Jesse Thorn) and the return of last year's mention from youtube - the very charming "Alice in Paris".

Enjoyed the recap of the trip. Garret and his brother Nathan who still resides here in the RGV are great brewers. I believe one of Garret's yeasts is being propagated/developed by that Chilean yeast company also!  Hopefully I will see some on his next trip "home."

Hey Rudy! Glad to see you on

Hey Rudy! Glad to see you on here. Yes, I'll be bringing more samples next time I'm back home, hopefully this winter (summer for us). The company is Kayta, and we're still in talks about how everything will be done. But it's a cool yeast with a pretty clean profile for a wild yeast as Denny got to try. Thanks again for everything, it was a blast getting to hang out and learn from you. Also, I've been happily reading your books recently. Keep up the awesome work!

Yeah, I think Garrett

Yeah, I think Garrett mentioned that to me.  Do you recall the name of the company?

Life begins at 60....1.060, that is!

What piece of equipment is it that you used to do some canning?  I'm curious about it but I relistened to the feedback section on this podcast and I did catch the name or anything.  I don't recall which episode it was that you may have first brought it up on, but I'm curious.  I like the idea to see if it is something a home brew club would be interested in going in on together.  Thanks in advance and take care!
