The call letters WBEZ might get you thinking about Ira Glass and This American Life but Strange Brews is the craft beer version. Giving you a Windy City perspective on beer. The podcast hosted by Andrew Gill and Alison Cuddy has won “Best Beer Podcast” from the North American Guild of Beer Writers. Which shows the cred it has within the industry.
As you have seen through the year, I much prefer podcasts that move along, have interesting guests but don’t get bogged down by the hosts jibber-jabber.
If I could point to an individual podcast or three to listen to off the bat would be the mini-expose of Not Your Father’s Root Beer. Then I would dive back into a normal sized and segmented one with Founders Brewing as the lead story.
For us West Coasters, Strange Brews will give you a load of knowledge about what is going on to the east of us.
