  • 11. Norwegian Farmhouse Beer with Lars Marius Garshol

    55:52
    This week Lisa and Christina chat with Lars Marius Garshol, a Norwegian beer history writer. He has a special interest and has written several books on Farmhouse brewing in Europe. Listen as we learn about how Farmhouse brewing was done, the way it evolved, and why it’s still current and relevant; a few myths are busted along the way. What we’re drinking:Bygland Bryggeri: Framgarden Farmhouse aleBallykilcavan: Clancy’s Cans 12 IPALinks:Lars’ blog with book links: https://www.garshol.priv.no/Archaeology Ireland and Ale: http://www.mooregroup.ie/2007/10/the-archaeology-ireland-article/Christina and Lars on the Beoirfest podcast: https://beoirfest.com/lithuanianfarmhousebeerBeer Ladies Links: All the beerladies links: linktr.ee/beerladiesPreorder Christina’s book: The Devil’s in the Draught Lines - https://shop1.camra.org.uk/product/the-devils-in-the-draught-lines-1000-years-of-women-in-britains-beer-history/Lisa’s Pub Guide: https://www.weirdodublinpubs.com/Thandi’s (occasional) blog: http://www.craftgeeksa.com/#beerladiespodcast #beerpodcast #farmhousebeer #beerhistory
  • 10. Re-Turn: Can Deposit Scheme

    01:07:46
    On 1 February 2024, Ireland launched the new return deposit scheme called Re-Turn. It’s essentially a recycling initiative, where you pay a bit extra on your cans (and some plastics) and then get it back when you return them to the Re-Turn “vending machines”. Sounds good right? Well… the beer industry has a lot to say about it, as do customers. This week we chat to Caoimhe from TheCru.ie and Leah from Whiplash Beer to get the inside scoop.What we’re drinking:Whitefield Brewery ‘The Viscount’ WeizenbockWhiplash Beer: Body Riddle Pale AleTwo Sides Brewing: Talus in Wonderland IPALinks:Re-turn can deposit scheme: https://re-turn.ie/Whiplash Beer: https://www.whiplashbeer.com/TheCru: https://www.thecru.ie/Beer Ladies Links: All the beerladies links: linktr.ee/beerladiesPreorder Christina’s book: The Devil’s in the Draught Lines - https://shop1.camra.org.uk/product/the-devils-in-the-draught-lines-1000-years-of-women-in-britains-beer-history/Lisa’s Pub Guide: https://www.weirdodublinpubs.com/Thandi’s (occasional) blog: http://www.craftgeeksa.com/#beerladiespodcast #beerpodcast #irishbeer
  • 9. Nuns & Beer

    49:17
    It’s St Brigid’s Day in Ireland and we’ve covered her before (S1E14) -but this week we thought we’d give a nod to the other monastic women in brewing, by honouring the nuns that brewed like (and with!) monks. Particularly, we focus on Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century German Abbess who is responsible for many things, including the first (surviving) written history of the use of hops in beer. She sits alongside St Brigid (albeit unofficially) as the patron saint of beer!Also, listen to what Christina and Lisa have been up to. Books! Blogs!

  • 8. British Bitter: Style series

    56:55
    We’re kicking off 2024 with a not-so-deep dive into the world of British Bitters; what they are, why they’re different (or not…) to adjacent styles and we tackle perceptions of them. Sadly, they’re not widely available in Ireland. We talk about how different the beer and pub culture are between us and our neighbours, the UK, and this includes Bitter and cask beers in general. What we’re drinking:Eight Degrees Brewing - Sunburnt Irish Red AleBallykilcavan - Brickyard RedLinks:Bitter: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitter_(beer)BJCP guidelines on Bitter: https://www.bjcp.org/style/2021/11/When did ‘bitter’ become the beer style that dare not speak it’s name: https://zythophile.co.uk/2019/04/09/when-did-bitter-become-the-beer-style-that-dare-not-speak-its-name/How one Irishman’s ginger beard helped launch an entirely bogus style of beer: https://zythophile.co.uk/2021/08/25/how-one-irishmans-ginger-beard-helped-launch-an-entirely-bogus-style-of-beer/Beer Ladies Links: linktr.ee/beerladies#beerladiespodcast #beerpodcast #christmasgifts

  • 6. Early Modern Brewhouses with Dr Susan Flavin

    47:31
    This week we’re talking to Dr Susan Flavin, a food historian who recently has been part of an epic project to recreate a 16th century brewhouse and brew a beer of the time. In this fascinating project - link below - the team used a recipe based on a beer once served in Dublin Castle, in order to not only taste it, but to learn more about the role beer played in the early modern period. This one will tickle the beer history nerds and casual beer fans alike!ICYMI: For the time being, episodes will be posted every 2 weeks.What we’re drinking:Kettlesmith x Woolley Grange -  Alchemy GruitBallykilcavan - Bambrick’s BrownLinks:The FoodCult Project: https://foodcult.eu/Understanding Early Modern Beer: An Interdisciplinary Case-Study: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/historical-journal/article/understanding-early-modern-beer-an-interdisciplinary-casestudy/76C118F73B8D35FED9E5B69CB3E966FBFood and Power in Dublin Castle: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/historical-journal/article/food-and-power-in-sixteenthcentury-ireland-studying-household-accounts-from-dublin-castle/C179A0BBE0E6FA8A4C485727CF093756Susan on Twitter/X: @flavin_susan Beer Ladies Links: linktr.ee/beerladies#beerladiespodcast #beerpodcast #beerhistory #irishbeerhistory
