Tag: Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

2017 is over. Long live 2018!

Like every year we asked our friends about their last year and prodded them for some foresight into the next year. Considering how varied this “beer thing” is, it’s no surprise the answers were equally varied. However, looking through the answers, it becomes crystal clear that one topic moved our friends, it itself being rather murky though. So, before we head any deeper into 2018, let’s quickly have a look back.

Interview with Chad Yakobson of Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

Yes, it changes, but the basic message stays the same: He is really, really, really busy with the expansion of Crooked Stave. Thus we are really greatful he took the time to answer our questions and also very pleased to give you this interview, completing our “Cerveza Sin Frontera” trilogy.

Interview with Tobias Emil Jensen of To Øl

Between the two Meet The Brewer sessions at the Erzbierschof-Bar in Zurich we got the chance to sit down with him and ask him a few questions.

Interview with Jester King’s Jeff, Garrett and Adrienne

Terroir. Getting into wine, you’ll hear this term a lot. It’s a catch-all term for the environmental factors that have an influence on the wine. Terroir used to play a factor in beer too: beer styles were developed according to the local water. Different areas have different hops and malts. And maybe most importantly: the local microorganisms gave each brewery its own unique character.
