This week we catch up with Ben Waymouth, head brewer at Napoleone Brewers in the Yarra Valley.
We discuss Ben’s approach to brewing, his experience malting his own grains and the zen approach needed for eight-hour bottling runs.
In the pre-ramble we discuss the growing log jam of beer and brewery names predominantly in the US, and reference a couple of stories out of the US…
- As Hop Puns Run Dry, Craft Beer Trademark Litigation Heats Up
- Inside the food fight over catchy craft beer names
- Time to Grow Up: Beer Branding’s Cleverness Deficiency
