Craft Brewer Radio 16th December 2007:
Christmas is here!!!!!. Is it about the birth of THAT baby, or getting blotto??? The Brewmaster proves what the true meaning of Christmas is all about with historical fact. Want to know the worst Christmas job ever, well we show you. In the spirit of the season, a great Christmas ending to the show has to be heard. As well, Australian beer news, Blokeman, brewing experiments update and we look at getting the best possible efficency and use out of the drought barley malt on the market.
Zachary Triemert from Upstream Brewing Company joins us on our last show of 2007 to talk about the unique beers of Upstream and the distilling process as well. Fun ensues, legends are born.

Jamil and Jon discuss brewing award winning Strong Scotch Ale. This is a great rich and malty style for the winter months. Jon provides his award winning recipe for this style.
Chris Colby of Brew Your Own Magazine fills us in on the hop situation and gives us tips to make it through to better, hoppier times.
We try a bunch of the Shelton Brother's Christmas Beers such as Bad Elf. and Very Bad Elf. While we appreciate many of the beers that the Shelton Brothers import, these miss the mark. Episode 97.1 because I messed up uploading 97.
