Against their better judgement, the Brewcasters did not take this week off. Instead, they dragged their rear-ends into the studio to bring you a show about a great beer style for homebrewers: Barleywine. Joining the conversation is Brett Thomas, the head brewer at Silver Moon Brewing Company in Bend, Oregon. Fresh off a 2012 GABF gold for their oak-aged Train Wreck Barley Wine, Brett sheds light on the techniques employed to create one of the world’s best examples of the style, the effects of aging, and the process of duplicating the beer in 2013. You’ll also hear from the next round of AHA Governing Committee candidates, theÂ legendaryÂ Ron Pattinson, and much more.
