Following straight on — after a quick re-play of the introduction, thanks to some clever editing by George — from last weekend’s episode, we’re delighted to present the second half of our Very Special podcast takeover on Women & Beer, by women, drinking beer. Megan, Beth, Hayley and Steph continue their conversation, covering topics as diverse as canned beer, food matching, ‘extreme’ beers, festivals, labeling and tastings — as well as discussing the potential need for (and nuances of) dedicated women’s groups in the community, the role of (and need for) overt feminism in the beer business.
Massive thanks to all four of our substitute hosts; I’ve really enjoyed listening to these episodes and hope you all have, as well. George and I will be back behind the microphone soon, and should also have something to share from our Beervana Sessions, shortly.
As always, a direct download is available, there’s a podcast-specific RSS feed, and you should be able to get us on iTunes — and if that’s how you get your fix, a review and/or rating would be greatly appreciated.
— Not-quite show notes:
- The show opens with the discussion of Beer Of The Week #2: Renaissance ‘Bloody R.I.P.A.’, which was opened at about 24.30 of part 1. Beer of the Week #3: Rodenbach, from a can, appears around 6.00 into this part. Beer of the Week #4: Almanac ‘Barrel Noir’ takes over at 29.00, and then — getting close to threatening our standing record of six, set with Stu McKinlay — Beer Of The Week #5 Mikkeller ‘Brunch Weasel’, finishes things off from about 52.00.
- The Pink Boots Society homepage, and the NZ chapter’s Facebook page.
- Shameless plug: Craft Beer College.
- ‘How To Buy A Beer’ is still on TheWireless.co.nz, and was also written up here.
- The New York Times piece on Mikkeller (and his twin brother) is pretty fascinating.
- We’re definitely planning a longer discussion on ‘tied taps’ in a later episode…
- Thanks to Steph for taking over signing-off duties and cueing the the music: ‘Shopping for Explosives’, by The Coconut Monkeyrocket. Hayley also provided the obligatory photo of their Beers Of The Week. Audio editing is done (by George) in Audacity. Habitual thanks to all concerned.
