“You don’t have to go great distances to find good beer. It starts at home, in this case.” Truer words were never spoken, and Charlie Papazian, founder of the Brewers Association and the Great American Beer Festival and author of The Complete Joy of Home Brewing, knows better than most (if not all). Papazian took the time to swing by Bitter and Esters homebrew shop to talk all things homebrewing and growing into a craft beer professional. Check out the video above, and then after that, check out Part 2 below. While the interview above is insightful, the Q&A in the video below will make any craft brewer — hobbyist or professional — geek out. Cheers!
