This week Beer Sessions Radio (TM) takes a trip to the North Pole, or at least Alaska, with Jason Bullen of 49th State Brewing who describes what it's like running a super small brewery way up north. Next, Tony Forder of Ale Street News and Andrea Stanley of Valley Malt join the conversation to talk about malt varieties, the importance of water in beer, and beer trends. Is Belgian beer over the hill? How big of a production system should beer startups use? How in the heck do you ship beer supplies to Alaska? All this and more are answered on this episode of Beer Sessions Radio. This episode is sponsored by

"If you're making good beer it's gonna sell . . you really need to start at big as possible."
