Episode 80 - An Extra Special Batch of Beer

Experimental Brewing show

Summary: Last call in Australia! On our final night in Sydney, we did a presentation at Batch Brewing Company. After 1100 kilometers of driving and not killing each other - Denny and Drew enjoyed meeting a healthy gathering of local homebrewers. After the talk, Drew sat down with Chris Sidwa of Batch Brewing Company. Together they talk how a Jersey kid ended up surviving a company crash overseas and turned it into his dream of owning a brewery and the steps he takes to ensure he's doing good for the beer and his people. Naturally we also talk beer news, some more explanation of the brew experiment from Australia, q and a, tips and something other in this very Aussie themed show!
