Our fifth episode is dedicated entirely to the Great American Beer Festival that took place in Denver this October. Alcohol by Volume is a new podcast dedicated to the homebrew community. In this episode, Josh Carr and Dennis Niedfeldt discuss the overall feel of the GABF this year: reactions to the crowds, vendors, and what it felt like being part of the press.
In part 2 of our series, we will discuss the unique and generally tasty beers we tried. Obviously, we didn’t taste every beer at the festival, but we did taste a few that were certainly worth mentioning on the show. Part 3 will be all about the gear and gadgetry we saw at the show.
Our hosts, Josh and Dennis, are avid homebrewers that wanted to take their interests to the podcast format. Dennis has been brewing for a few years already. Josh is really just getting started. Together, they make a great team: a rookie and a veteran with questions and answers that will have you listening each week.
As we move forward with the podcast, we’ll step into recipes, interviews, Q&A from our listeners, etc. We want your feedback. Sure, we’re doing this show because we love it, but we’re also doing it for you. If we mess up, we expect you to tell us. If you want us to answer a question, ask it. Feel free to leave a comment, and we’ll get back to you.
