This may not be a big deal to you but it’s a HUGE deal to us: this week, we welcome Mr. Horst Dornbusch onto the program! Horst Dornbusch is a well-known brewer, author, beer judge, and speaker, and the founder of Cerevisia Communications, LLC, a consulting company in the international brewing industry. He’s also the author of one of our favorite beer books, “Altbier: History, Brewing Techniques, Recipes“. 

Horst was a delight to speak with! Not only does he possess a wealth of knowledge on all things related to beer, the dude has an incredible sense of humor. We really enjoyed our time with him and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!
