What You Missed On Beer Sessions Radio™ – Beer Media, Homebrew And The Soul Of Craft (7/10/12)

As a preview of July Good Beer Month’s Beer Book, Blog & Video Fest at South Street Seaport on July 25th, several beer media personalities joined Beer Sessions Radio™ for Episode 122: Beer Books & Blogs. In the studio are Christian DeBenedetti (The Great American Ale Trail and The Weekly Pint), Seth Wright (Beer Nation), and Erica Shea and Stephen Valand from the Brooklyn Brew Shop.

From the future of beer media (including the difficulty of launching a beer-tv show) to the evolution of home brewing as a catalyst for the craft beer movement, this group is looking ahead to the Fest by celebrating the “soul and spirit of beer.” By the end of the episode, you’ll be ready to brew some Peach Cobbler Ale. Or maybe just buy tickets to the Fest here, where you’ll meet these beer celebs and more. Slated to be in attendance:
