What a great conversation. This guy knows his stuff when it comes to brewing beer. We thoroughly enjoyed talking with Michael Tonsmeire, and I think you will enjoy watching, too.
You can find Michael’s book, American Sour Beers, on all the good booksellers’ sites and in stores. It is so full of information, you definitely get your money’s worth. Also, you can visit his blog, The Mad Fermentationist, to keep up with all his goings-on.
As a little treat for our loyal followers, we are going to mail a signed copy of his awesome book to one lucky winner. All you have to do to win is drop a comment on the bottom of THIS POST. If you have a question, ask it. If you have a story about brewing your own sour, give it. If you just want the damn book, write “Me please!” (or, whatever). We will pick a winner from everyone who comments before noon (EST) on Thursday, January 15th. Get your comment in now!

You can visit our Google+ Event to comment or suggest questions/topics for our interview, or you can come right back here at show time to watch. Either way, see you Thursday night!

In this episode, we run down some headlines and are then joined by Joshua Willett. Joshua is the Head Brewer at Wonderland Brewing in Bloomfield, CO. We talk about the breweries early days (that they are still in), and we talk about some of their future releases. In fact, their first lacto sour is coming out on August, 30th. If that isn’t a reason to fly to Colorado…I don’t know one.
