Hear from the man who literally wrote the book on homebrewing on a very special episode of Beer Sessions Radio. Charlie Papazian is the author of The Complete Joy of Homebrewing, the founder of the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) and the Association of Brewers and the current president of the Brewers Association. The creator of the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup, he is the founding publisher of the magazines Zymurgy (for homebrewers) and The New Brewer (for professional craftbrewers). Tune in as he tells his story and paints a picture of the world before home brewing and craft beers became popular. This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

"The expectation these days is that if you're gonna make beer, you're gonna make beer that's as good as you can buy." [18:30]

"If you've been brewing as long as I have, it gets to a point where it seems nothing is new." [21:30]

"Moderation is a real key to enjoying beer for a long time." [33:00]
