Podcast Show 162: Desert Beer Brewing with Christina Sanchez
Anyone who’s been down to the pub lately can testify to the amazing renaissance of flavors now available on the beer brewing scene. We herbalists have been quite pleased to note the variety of bittering herbs and wonderful herbal flavors we are finding among home brews and micro brews. We particularly love how brewers are reaching into their local plant communities for inspiration.
Today, we’re talking with Christina Sanchez, founder of Every Leaf Speaks, about her experience working with up and coming pros to brew flavorful beers with desert herbs.
