S13E07: Festivals and Festivities



brunswick beer collective japan



PODCAST | In this episode Paul and Kyle go to Japan to attend the Mikkeller Beer Celebration and give us a brief (due to Skype issues) report of exactly what happens when one of the world’s best breweries organises a beer festival, but not before Paul gives his own preamble to himself in the future. We also take multiple normals to work out why phone books still exist, compare nitro with that NOS stuff from those Fast and Furious films, and discover what happens when an Australian brewery takes on an English beer style.

And if that wasn’t enough, we bring back a joke that you probably haven’t heard since season one or two, and discover why in Sweden you can often buy beers that have an ABV of 3.5%.

Featured beers: Builder’s Brew by Tallboy And Moose and Hobgoblin Legendary Ruby Beer by Wychwood Brewery.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
