Still reeling from last week's show with Dan Gordon of Gordon Biersch
Brewing, we're following up this week with another big gun in the
Microbrew world, Pyramid Breweries. Founded in 1984, Pyramid Breweries
Inc. is a leading brewer of specialty, full-flavored beers produced
under the Pyramid and MacTarnahan's brands. The independent company
operates five western breweries with adjoining Ale House restaurants in
Seattle, Portland, Berkeley, Walnut Creek and Sacramento. Pyramid's
flagship brand-Pyramid Hefeweizen-was judged the best at the 2004
Great American Beer Festival, garnering the Gold Medal in the
American-Style Hefeweizen category. Pyramid Brewmaster, John Donehower,
will be joining us in the studio to discuss the effect of wheat in all
sorts of beers, and which yeasts are appropriate for American and
German wheat beers.
For our official tasting during at the top of the second hour of the
show(6:00 p.m. Pacific Time), we will be drinking Pyramid Hefeweizen.
So pick yourself up a bottle of Pyramid Hef and join us as we evaluate
it on the air.
Also, stay tuned thoughout the coming weeks as changes begin to take
place around The Brewing Network, as we gear up for a new year of
Brewcasting. We'll be making alot of changes and will begin announcing
and showing them soon...
As usual, the fun starts at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, Sunday (Monday,
0100 UTC.) Also, The Blues and Brews Show airs at 11:00 a.m. Pacific
Time, Sunday (Sunday, 1900 UTC.) And of course, it's all live,
commercial free, funny and informative.
If you have any pre-questions to ask of the Brewcasters or guest, send
them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them under the Beer Radio
topic in the forum. Then tune in this Sunday as we answer them on the
air. Or even better, join the chatroom during the show and ask live.
