This week we run two interviews. Firstly we catch up with Justin Joiner and Ashur Hall from the soon-to-open Stomping Ground Brewing Co.

Stomping Ground is a new project from the team behind The Local Taphouse and GABS, and we hear from Justin and Ashur the brewery’s philiospohy and approach to its beers.

Then we chat with Andrew Hunter the man behind Streamline Beverages, and inventor of the OP TIK beverage dispensing tower. We speak with Andrew about the thinking behing these beer fonts that showcase the colour of the beer being poured.

    OK, on the Op Tik system (horrible name BTW – really, really bad); there are two obvious cons.

    Con the first – being able to see the beer doesn’t prove much about quality. We aren’t CAMRA wonks from the 70s who think clarity=quality. The pub may still be skimping on cleaning, the beer may not have been kept in optimal condition, and yet remain crystal clear.

    Con the 2nd – light strike? Does the clear section block UV light?
