This week on Beer Sessions Ray and Jimmy (plus the multi-talented Dave Broderick of Blind Tiger) sit down with an all-star cast of beer aficionados and creators. David Geary, the "dean of American craft beer", comes through the studio to talk about brewing in Scottish castles and accessing the most secretive spots of the craft beer universe. Dann Paquette and Martha Paquette talk about being "nomad" brewers: borrowing other brewer's facilities late in the eve to mash and brew...plus they discuss their heavily-researched historical reproduction beers and what beer making was like in the 19th century.
