Good Beer Matters is a show about great beer, great friends and the experiences we create together. We seek to educate people on the art, science and cultural impact of beer on our world and to tell the stories of those who are leading the charge. This is a show for beer professionals who work in the industry, who are training to obtain their BJCP, Cicerone and more. It is also for the beer enthusiasts who seek to understand beer culture better.

Times have been tough this year for many of us. For those who are normally accustomed to life’s grand adventure, we’re probably ready for some stability. For those unprepared for uncertainty, we’ve been shaken to our core. If there was a time to come together, to share best practices and to build a community as well as a business, I’d say now is a …
 
There are many things that influence our decisions as beer drinkers, branding, advertisements, flavor, etc. Most of us take for granted the wealth of beers available to us everywhere we go. But, what about those things that influence our decisions that are completely outside our control? What about the nefarious business practices such as price und…
 
I want you to think back to that one perfect night you replay in your head over and over. You know the one. It’s the night that if you could go back in time, you wouldn’t change anything. Instead, you’d just sit back and relive the magic. It was the night where the food was amazing, the beer pairing sung like angels and the conversation flowed like…

There are men so devoted to their faith, they sequester themselves from the outside world. In order to sustain themselves and give to charity, they make a variety of products.

Learning to pair beer with food is a lifelong pursuit that is all about the journey, not the destination. A great pairing has a way of elevating the experience, the discussion, the memory, and with some luck, the relationships with those around us. I’ve spent a fair amount of time learning, thinking about and experimenting with food and beer pairin…

Beer culture is nearly as diverse and as rich as our human culture throughout the world. But, while it pains me to say this out loud, there really is more to life than just beer. When we look at all of fermentation, we can see how interconnected, yet diverse the world truly is. As we have learned from previous episodes, the craft beer movement is n…

The Beer Judge Certification Program, or BJCP, works to categorize the world’s beer styles so that homebrewers can submit their brews for feedback on how well they hit the targets.

Defining farmhouse beers is a bit like trying to explain jazz or comfort food to someone who’s never experienced them. It usually requires a conversation because there is no single, simple definition we can all agree on. We tend to look to Belgium or France to bail us out of this pickle since Lambics, Saisons and Biers de Garde are the best known e…
 
What do you get if you cross the mindset of a winemaker and the talented hands of a brewer to create a perfect blend of single-origin beers? You get a style-defying, exceptional brewery set deep in the heart of Californian wine country. The beers produced from this farm-style brewery are easy on the palate, but with enough character and nuance to b…
 
For a travel writer who has lived in different parts of the world, settling down in one place for a length of time makes a statement. When that person becomes both a beer writer and educator in South Africa’s emerging beer culture, she makes yet a different and even more profound statement. I’ve never been to South Africa, but when I consider it, I…

For me, the term Mexican Beer conjures great memories of tacos, the beach and delicious pale or dark, malty, crisp lagers brewed south of the border. Although it is not native to Mexico, the style is well known throughout the world to be refreshing and easy drinking. As the craft beer movement expands like a wave throughout the world, Mexico’s craf…

With more than 8,000 craft breweries, according to the Brewer’s Association, it’s safe to say that we have reached a new high watermark of quality and competition. Long gone are the days when a decent brewer can just open up and succeed without a solid plan. The market for craft beer now demands a brewer must carve out a niche, make superior beer, …

When it comes to tasting beer, the most important thing we need to decide is, do we like it, yes or no. But, for those of us who want to take it to the next level, we need to decipher what we are tasting, where those flavors come from and how to pair them to create the best flavor synergy. This is what brewers, beer judges and Cicerones spend their…

Today women operate in practically every facet of the brewing industry, but it is still more common to see men on the brew deck than women. This was not always the case. Centuries ago women were the ones who brewed for their household and their community. Somewhere along the line this changed and now women are finally integrating back into a role t…
 
March is Women’s History Month, and the 8th is International Women’s Day. I can’t think of a better way to honor and support the women in my life, than by having a beer.
