It often seems that the main talk about beer concerns the level of hops, the sourcing of barley, or the ABV of a particular brew. It’s easy to overlook the one thing all beer has in common: water! Last week on Beer Sessions Radio™ we discussed the environmental impact of beer and looked into the water footprint it takes to run a brewery. Regulars Jen Schwertman and Dave Brodrick of The Blind Tiger were there to talk about the world’s best potable with water researcher Kai Olson-Sawyer and sustainability expert Caleb Stratton. You can catch up on last week’s episode to learn how and why water is so important in creating the flavor profile of a good beer.
