BeoirFest   Meet Europe's Brewers

Brewers Roundtable: 3 Brewers, 4 Breweries, 5 Countries

Third Barrel in Ireland produce small-batch craft beers but through their other brands Stone Barrel and Third Circle also produce more mainstream craft beers. Solo from Crete was founded by Kjetil Jikuin who also founded Norway's first craft brewery. He's also the head brewer with Axiom in the Czech Republic. Brew & Roll are from Spain and produce hop-forward beers inspired by listening to Metallica and other metal.

This was a great wide-ranging (or meandering or unfocused depending on your point of view!) chat covering everything from preferred beer styles, to the influence of Untappd, the search for decent malt, keeping beer cold during distribution, traditional decoction, right up to souring beer with pantyhose. I think you'll really enjoy it.
