Our 6th episode is dedicated entirely to the beer we tasted at the Great American Beer Festival that took place in Denver this past October. Alcohol by Volume is a new podcast dedicated to the homebrew community. In this episode, Josh Carr and Dennis Niedfeldt discuss the many… many beers they tasted at GABF: we’re focusing specifically on the beers we loved outside of Colorado. We love our Colorado breweries, but we get to see and taste their beer all of the time. So we decided to step outside of the beer capital of the world and explore the beers other companies had to offer.
In part 3 of our series, we’ll talk about the Pro-Am competition, a few of the notable Pro competition winners and some the best technology 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.
