Updated: Aug 14, 2019
If you find yourself with a splitting headache after staring at a screen all day in the office, then arriving home only to surf the internet or binge watch Netflix won’t do you any favours. But we have an alternative, so hear us out. Podcasts are a huge craze at the moment, with everyone jumping on the bandwagon. It’s hard to know where to start faced with the sheer number of podcasts available, especially when it comes to beer. But we’ve found the 5 best beer podcasts that spark fascinating and important dialogues that you certainly won’t find amongst tipsy bar conversations! Time to kick back with a pint and a podcast...
The Beer Podcast
To kick things off, these guys aspire to be the UK’s best beer podcast. As two Aussies in London, Michael and Nic have come together to create this brand new beer podcast that everybody’s talking about. Predominantly focusing on the UK beer scene, they proudly bring “news, views, insight and interviews” to beer lovers. Featuring interviews with prominent brewers, we just can’t get enough!
Nerds on Draft
Much like some of the ingredients in experimental craft beers, IT geeks and beer is an unexpected pairing and yet...it works. Our undying love for beer would label us proud beer nerds, so we couldn’t think of a better podcast that embraces the geeky side of beer knowhow. Every week the presenters, Jeff Hunsberger and Gabe Weatherhead, choose a beer or style and nerd out about technology and all things geek. This interesting take on craft culture truly brings a refreshing outlook in this competitive world of brewing.
Good Beer Hunting
You’ve got the best of both worlds with this half blog, half podcast hybrid - a truly critical voice in the beer community. Michael Kiser is the brain behind this creative project that provides “award-winning interviews with a wide spectrum of people working in, and around, the beer industry.” Good Beer Hunting focuses on connecting enthusiasts around the world no matter the subject, with the ultimate aim of finding a beer that suits everybody's taste buds!
The beer world often seems like something of a man’s world. So if you loved our post on women in beer, look no further than Catherine Contreras’ podcast. Catherine brings the female perspective into this male-dominated industry with an exciting comedy and craft beer show from San Antonio, Texas. Featuring celebrity guests, live music and of course, delicious beer, Catherine takes you on a beery adventure full of endless laughs and knowledge to keep you going for hours. The name brings to mind a sense of mischievousness which is only matched by crazy audio sessions, including exclusive and hilarious awards to hand out!
