BigFoamyHead continues to focus on startup breweries - our fourth interview from the Big Beers, Belgians and Barleywine festival is with Grimm Brothers Brewhouse - established in 2010 in Loveland. I've been wanting to interview these guys for a long time. I have been following Aaron's progress setting up this business with quite a bit of envy - and he's one of the nicest people I know. There's some great advice in here - namely if you want to do this, just do it!

The Lost Interviews - Mick interviews Rick

The third of the lost interviews series. Mick interviews Rick.

Simply put, Mick is brilliant. He has one of the most sophisticated homebrew systems I've ever seen. It's computer controlled, SRC relayed, PID controlled, yada-yada. The guy can control his brew day while watching a football game upstairs. When Mick was bored being a EE he went to school to become a pharmacist. This guy is smart.

Rick is a multiple-mega-award-winning guru - and no slouch when it comes to technology. He is an entreprenuer, businessman, father, man-about-town. Multiple Golds, ribbons, awards and a Pro-Am brewer.

Give a mic to one, listen to the other... podcast GOLD! Here's the audio.... well, perhaps 2 minutes of audio. Alcohol was involved!

The second of our "Lost Interview" series. If you've been living under a rock, you may not know who Jamil is. He's a fixture on the Brewing Network and most homebrewers aspire to get to his level of brewing to style - he's won 2 Ninkasi awards (2004 and 2007)! Coauthor of "Brewing Classic Styles" and more recently a collaboration with Chris White - "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation"
