Beer Ladies Podcast


Season 4, Ep. 2

PSA: For the time being, BL will be posted every 2 weeks

Katie, Christina and Thandi are taking on an array of sober adjacent topics this week just in time for Sober October. What is the sobercurious movement? How do you evaluate alcohol's role in your life? And what needs to be done to make non-alc just as normal as drinking? We chat about the state of alcohol on mental and physical health (shout out to those who work in the alcohol biz!) and ruminate on generational gaps when it comes to booze and labels.

What we’re drinking:

  • Kinnegar - Rust Bucket
  • Hope - Hop Off

  • 6. Early Modern Brewhouses with Dr Susan Flavin

    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: Early Modern Beer: An Interdisciplinary Case-Study: and Power in Dublin Castle: on Twitter/X: @flavin_susan Beer Ladies Links: #beerpodcast #beerhistory #irishbeerhistory
