5 Stupid Questions with Joshua M. Bernstein—Author of The Complete Beer Course

The last time that we spoke with Josh, he was just releasing his first book, Brewed Awakening. It was a beautifully designed, witty, and wonderfully written book. We were all about it. But for some reason (read: drunkenness), our 5 Stupid Questions with him ended badly, and he left our offices promising that he was done “dealing with idiots” and threatening to fire his publicist. Who knew writers even had publicists?

Since Josh is considered to be one of the country’s best craft beer writers, we hoped to talk with him about his latest book, The Complete Beer Course. However, our many calls to his “people” went largely unreturned. After a personal visit to his publishers and a signed agreement promising that we’d behave (fingers crossed!), he finally agreed to give us a second chance.

Obviously, we’d sign anything to get to hang with a craft beer scribe like Joshua M. Bernstein. But we were also blown away to discover that his newest book might even be better than his last one!

5 Stupid Questions with BrewDog’s James Watt and Martin Dickie

BrewDog is said to be Scotland’s largest independent brewery, producing more than 120,000 bottles per month for export all over the world. It was founded in 2007 by James Watt and Martin Dickie, a duo known not only for their entrepreneurial instincts but also for their independent and audacious spirits. These guys are natural born post-punk showmen and we think it’s fair to say that with BrewDog, they have single-handedly revitalized the UK’s moribund beer scene. James Watt and Martin Dickie exemplify everything that makes the craft beer movement so cutting-edge and exciting – not bad for a couple of Scotsmen who may soon become America’s newest TV stars.

5 Stupid Questions with F.X. Matt Brewing’s Fred Matt

If ever there were a craft brewer that deserved to be considered a true heritage brewery, Utica, New York’s F.X. Matt Brewing Company would be one of a very few. Nestled at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, this family-owned business has been brewing beer since 1888. And in spite of that kind of history and presence, many in the craft beer community don’t realize that they are a powerhouse and were ranked as the 8th largest craft brewing company in the US based upon 2012 beer sales volume. Fred Matt is the President and COO of this impressive operation and he foolishly agreed to submit himself to our reckless questions.

5 Stupid Questions With Half Acre’s Gabriel Magliaro

Gabriel Magliaro brought Half Acre Beer Company to life in a spare Chicago bedroom in 2006. After originally utilizing a contract brewer in Wisconsin, he worked his way up to his own building, which houses their brewery in addition to a taproom where they “can host the people who want to hoist our beers.” Located in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood, they now count themselves as one of Chicago’s most popular breweries

Every Baseball Fan's Dream

American Craft Beer visits with K.L. Wombacher, Vice President and General Manager of the Hillsboro Hops

There are two things that I really love (aside from family, blah blah blah): beer and sports. And the one thing that has always made me happy during baseball season is drinking a wonderfully flavor-filled hoppy beverage at the stadium. So, when I heard that the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Class-A team was moving to Hillsboro, Oregon and being renamed “Hops”, I had to reach out.

And he definitely followed through.
