GBH is not a voice speaking only from the outside looking in, but rather, from the middle of some of the most rapidly changing dynamics that any U.S. industry has ever seen. The interviews go deeper and the articles work harder to balance the culture of craft beer with the businesses it supports, shifting the conversation with our readers toward the future of the industry we love and the tenacity of its ideals.

Today you’ll hear Claire Bullen read her story, “The Land of Fire and Kveik — Farmhouse Brewing at the Crossroads in Voss, Norway."

There is an undeniable brightness that Eugenia Brown brings to the world of beer. She is upbeat, energetic, social, and perhaps best of all: hopeful. Through her organization and brand of Black Beer Chick, she’s working to celebrate, empower, and connect people who share a love of beer. Especially communities long ignored by a very white, very male U.S. craft beer industry. She is a black woman creating change, making a lot of friends, and embracing her growing role as someone many are looking up to.

Today’s guest is a revisit with one of GBH's favorite people—Collin McDonnell of Henhouse Brewing in Northern California.

The context for today’s chat, of course, is the particular 2020 Collin and his team are facing—the pandemic, the fires, the weariness of it all—but that’s not to say this is bleak. At least, not to us. In this conversation, Collin shares both the vulnerable and anxious parts of his role and his hope for things to be better than they are.

As CEO and president of Beer Kulture, a nonprofit focused on equity and “changing the world one beer at a time,” Latiesha Cook is an important voice, and offers a valuable point of view as a Black woman encouraging the very white, very male beer community to reassess and think about how it wants to describe itself. There are social, cultural, and empathetic reasons to do this even before considering economic ones, like the business-focused idea of why it’s finally time to expand craft beer’s consume

Did we plan to release a story about witches on Halloween? Yes, we did, but Beth Demmon's story, “Witch (Craft) Beer — How a New Wave of Brewers are Incorporating Magic into Beer,” goes beyond stereotypes and explores the spiritual forces that some brewers tap into to create their beer. Part of Beth’s fascination with witches is primal. It’s the search for the unknown, and the belief that there are things around us we cannot always see or understand—but which can have an outsize impact on our li

In this installment of A Thousand Words, we wanted to talk about beer and love. We asked our writers to recall moments from their lives when romance, heartache, camaraderie, and friendship intersected with beer. Like love, some stories are funny and some are painful. But they’re all complex, and they evoke feelings, moments, pangs of joy and sorrow that we’ve all felt before. And they all place beer at the heart of the narrative.

Brian Alberts is a beer historian and regular contributor to our From Barons to Barrels series. The stories in this series were meant to be rooted in Midwestern beer history, but that doesn’t mean that it was meant to explore that history through conventional means.

Rather, the series connects some of the dots between past and present. And for GBH, that means through the lens of race, ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, and politics. When it comes to those things, history really does repeat itself.

In this episode, GBH's international editor Evan Rail wanted to ask ex-pats and beer travelers what they missed about beer in Europe, and what they thought was valuable about their time here. He finds out what they learned and what they thought beer fans might miss out on if they just read an article or watched a video from Europe instead of traveling there themselves. Basically, he wants to know why this all sucks—and the memories keeping folks going.

Today, I’m talking with Stephanie Grant, who wrote “Drinking While Black—The Isolation and Loneliness of Navigating All-White Taprooms." Ultimately, Stephanie's essay is intentionally dualistic, contrasting her experiences drinking in taprooms in Asheville, North Carolina—an overwhelmingly white city long known as "Beer City USA"—and the much more diverse city of Atlanta, where she's based.

That tension—and that pull between two totally different experiences—is no accident.

Is temperance a war of attrition? Or will previous precedents point to likely future results? Kate Bernot and Brian Alberts join the conversation, as they dig into the many factors influencing America’s long pattern of Prohibitionist tensions.

Starting in 2019, fruit beers—a non-specific category comprising fruited and flavored brands—showed some of the strongest growth among beer styles in grocery, convenience, liquor, and other chain stores. This has become even more stark in 2020, as COVID-19 has accelerated brewing and sales strategies that are focused on easy-to-understand flavor experiences, like hop-forward beers … or beers featuring fruit.

Felix Nash of Fine Cider Co. gives some fascinating insights into a small industry with huge potential, and a young company at the start of a long journey—how inspiration is more important than education, how he hopes cider can learn from the mistakes of craft beer, and what the future of cider looks like post-COVID-19.

Norway’s kveik yeast, employed by farmhouse brewers across the western portion of the country for thousands of years, had nearly disappeared before it was rediscovered by the mainstream beer world. Now it’s being used by some of the most prominent brewers around the world. As you’ll hear, Claire’s story is about this extraordinary family of farmhouse yeast, but it’s also about extinction, history, sustainability, and what it means for something to belong to a place, or a group of people.

The term "craft beer" is muddy—difficult to define explicitly, but something that most beer drinkers can still identify on sight. In this episode, we talk to freelance writer Paige Latham Didora. Paige is based in Minneapolis and recently wrote a story for Good Beer Hunting about Vine Park Brewing Company, the first Hmong-American brewery in the nation. Along with telling the story of Vine Park's founding, we also talk about what it means to be a craft brewery.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the arrival of COVID-19 has completely upended the beer industry. Breweries large and small have had to radically change their approach in order to survive the pandemic. But these changes prompted a major question: why have beer businesses been so willing to overhaul the way things have always been when faced with economic issues, but so reluctant to address long-standing social issues within the industry, like its lack of inclusion and equity?

Failure is hard, it is unpleasant … and it hurts. But so often, in the end, it’s also tied to what we come to see as success. Or, at least, growth. Erik Lars Myers’ story—of opening and then closing Mystery Brewing—offers some context and affirmation that, even when things go wrong, and hard lessons are learned, that isn’t necessarily the end.

Jamaal Lemon is a writer, photographer, podcaster, and he wrote his piece, “Mutated Anxieties — Living (and Parenting) While Black in the Face of Law Enforcement and COVID-19,” in under an hour. It’s impressive enough to write a full-length article in such little time, but even more so because the connections Jamaal makes are incredibly deep and nuanced—between United States history, his own lineage, protests for civil rights, and the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on Black people in America
