Episode details

Boulder is home to the Brewers Association as well as to the American Homebrewers Association. It’s a region that takes its cultural responsibilities pretty seriously. This week, I spoke with journalist Michael J. Case who wrote the history of Boulder County Beer.

Michael told me some great stories about early homebrewing classes the association put on as well as about how the Boulder County brewing community has negotiated the kind of expansion that it has.
