Weekend Reading #38

This edition features articles on the term ‘sour beer’, White Labs Yeast, session IPAs and the importance of breweries telling a story

I love lounging in bed on weekends and catching up on all my favourite beery reading. From the American craft beer scene, local beer news and anything else that tickles my beery fancy, there is a lot of excellent reading material out there! Every weekend (though I may miss the occasional one due to forgetfulness!) I’m posting a list of the articles and blogs that have enjoyed and hope that you will too!

Brewbound | Brewbound Session: The Art of Storytelling

One of my favourite beer podcasts to listen to is Good Beer Hunting by Michael Kiser. Great interviews and engaging conversations, it’s fantastic! Here is an article and a video about storytelling, engagement and breweries.

Good Beer Hunting | Trading Pitches for Pizza – White Labs Pure Yeast and Fermentation in San Diego, CA

As beer geeks we can get a little caught up in the hops and the malt, seemingly the more romantic ingredients of brewing but the science behind yeast is something fascinating. I love finding great articles on yeast and fermentation; so much to learn!

Fortune | Low-alcohol Session IPA is the hot beer trend for summer

This is probably not massively surprising given we have been drinking Australian and New Zealand session hoppy beers like 8 Wired Semiconductor, Colonial Small Ale and, more recently, Pirate Life Throwback IPA.

Draft Magazine | Stop Calling Beers ‘Sours’

An article questioning the use of the term ‘sour’ which I found quite interesting.

Ale of a Time | Keep Calling Beers ‘Sours’

To flip the previous article on its head, here’s a great piece from Luke Robertson.
