Radio Brews News Episode 4 is now available online here and on iTunes. It was recorded on 29 June 2011.
In a wide ranging discussion with Malt Shovel’s Dr Chuck Hahn, we take a stab at the thorny issues of tap contracts, some new Squire beers and the history of the James Squire brand.
Portions of a discussion that took place after we finished the interview have been edited into the show as they were relevant to the discussions. These portions are those that relate to the Local Taphouse and the history of the Squires brand. They have been edited in to maintain the flow of the show and do not change their context or the nature of the discussion.
We invited representatives from both major breweries to discuss this issue, as well as a number of small brewers, however Chuck was the only one willing to take up our offer. We thank Lion Nathan for being willing to discuss the issue. It’s a discussion that has plenty of life left in it and we welcome listeners to join the conversation on the discussion board below. I would welcome people involved in the brewing and hotel industries to get in touch if you would like to discuss your experiences and views on a future episode of Radio Brews News, or share them confidentially via email.
Next Friday, we talk sour beers and Feral with Brendan Varis
