This week Jimmy dives into the history of working-class drinking with PJ Mercier, founder of Navigation Brewing in Lowell, Massachusetts, BR Royla, national judge for BJCP, Peter Brown, British journalist and writer, and Jerard Fagerberg, writer and journalist.
From Jack Kerouac to British coal mines, the gang pieces through where pub myth and legend meet reality. The writers attest to the dangers of writing drunk. The group explores how beer and drinking have been such an integral part of working-class community and culture from Lowell to Minneapolis to England. And they touch on what it means to reconcile those identities today through their taprooms and writing. Grab your favorite porter and give it a listen!
