Barley & Me

Episode 40: Grant Ritchie, Kevin Martin & Mike Mathis of Cascade Brewing (Portland, OR) & Comedian Becky Lynn

December 28, 2016

Host Ben Rice and guest Becky Lynn celebrate their anniver-soury by traveling to Portland, Oregon, and visiting world-renowned sour beer brewery Cascade Brewing. So why not do a podcast? We chat with brewery manager Grant Ritchie, blender Kevin Martin, and head brewer Mike Mathis about what separates sour brewing from typical beer brewing. Plus! Beers that got us into beer, making friends through beer, and beer enthusiasm versus beer snobbery. Plus even more (sour) beer puns and we even go in depth on some horror stories from Cascade's "Tap It Tuesday," in which pre-selected guests get to tap the barrel on their "Live from the Barrel" series. It's a gusher of fruity sticky goodness and this episode is a gusher of information and joy. So grab your lactobacillis and a few dozen of your favorite barrels and enjoy Episode 40 of Barley & Me!
