In the meantime, we've been scanning the interwebs for great beer and brew-related infotainment (and FREE), and we'd like to share with you what we've been listening to during our commutes. Click each link below to be magically transported to their respective web pages.
A Typical DFW Podcast - A hilarious bunch who say what we're all thinking. They can get a little blue, so maybe not the best for a G-rated family road trip to Six Flags. They talk about great beer, comics, games, movies, and whatever weird crap crawls out of the internet every week.
Dallas Brew Scene website - Good compendium for beer and beer-related news in the Metroplex. They even have beer industry job postings and something called a Brew Bus!
Steel Rain Beer Blog - This is a fellow homebrewer in Lewisville that just happens to be an Aggie. He has some awesome recipes and great write-ups. Whoop!
Other beer/brewing blogs we like:
Brulosophy - I read this blog/website religiously. He's brewed and reviewed all kinds of stuff, and he uses the Scientific Method in what he calls exBEERiments to answer the many confusing or inconclusive questions homebrewers face. Great resource.
The Mad Fermentationist - For those who are looking to get a little more advanced with their brewing techniques, this is the stuff to read. He also has a book out on brewing sours.
And of course, the classics of beercasting, from the
Sunday Session Podcast - A collection of homebrewers and beer industry folks who sit around for a few hours and talk about whatever comes up. Wouldn't ya know it, most of the time it's about beer!
Brewing With Style Podcast - For those homebrewers looking to win some BJCP competitions, a trained panel of judges, homebrewers, and professional brewers discuss each and every style in the book with commercial examples and recipes you can try at home.
Brew Strong Podcast - The be-all and end-all for homebrew how-to. Hosts and leading homebrew authors Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer talk homebrewing to death and answer any questions one might have about the hobby. They also invite tons of special guests from the world of homebrewing and commercial brewing to share the beer gospel.
There's an endless array of information and entertainment out there on the world wide web, and this collection of the finest free sites is just the tip of the iceberg. If you're looking to become a better brewer or if you just want to shoot the breeze with some craft beer fans, give these fine folks a click. Happy hunting!
