Heavy Hops Ep. 080: The Second Testament (Jeff Alworth/Beervana, The Beer Bible)

Jeff Alworth, an award-winning beer writer based in Portland, Oregon is our guest this week. Jeff has authored five books on beer, The Widmer Way, The Secrets of Master Brewers, Cider Made Simple, Beer Tasting Tool Kit, and The Beer Bible. A second edition of the Beer Bible was released in September 2021, and we took the opportunity to discuss beer broadly and through a social lens. We explore evolutions within the brewing world, fluidity of beer styles, how the proliferation of information on traditional Scandinavian and Baltic beers impacted his thinking of farmhouse ales, and how his telling of beer history has shifted. Whether you’re new to beer or have tried 10,000 beers The Beer Bible is an inviting, enriching read.

Jeff publishes almost daily on his blog Beervana, which you’ll find linked in the episode notes. And that’s where our conversation kicks off.
