This week on Beer Sessions, Jimmy Carbone makes a long awaited return to the studio! He is joined by John Holl, an award-winning journalist covering the beer industry and author of the newly published book, Drink Beer, Think Beer: Getting to the Bottom of Every Pint. We also hear from Justin Phillips, Megan Saxelby and Noah Levin who make up the team at Beer Table, a specialty beer shop in New York City. Jimmy and his guests discuss trends in the beer industry, trying to get to the bottom of which are meaningful and which may be fleeting. John Hull argues we should step away from modifiers like ‘craft’ and ‘independent.’ Everyone is interested in the ways the local food movement is impacting breweries as many begin to grow their own grain and malt. What seems to matter most, is how consumers are making personal connections with the beer they drink.
