About the Podcast
The GBH podcast is devoted to using craft beer as a bridge between other types of businesses, craft-oriented cultures, and what we eat and drink. Interviews with brewers, aficionados, and makers of all types with one thing in common – a fascination with what's happening in craft beer. Recorded at GBH Studios in Chicago, Illinois.
b-Roll captures the little moments that happen along this incredible beer journey of mine. It’s behind the scenes, around the corner, and up in your grill. It's more of what beer and craft looks like — from the center of the movement.
Beer is one of the most dynamic industries in the world. Nearly everyday, something happens that hints at a possible future that none of us could have predicted. It's a business, it's a culture, it's constantly changing. This is us keeping up.
We form partnerships with ambitious, creative people all over the world to help inspire curiosity and a sense of explroation in food and beverage. We love bringing people into the GBH fold as much as we love supporting them in their own visions. These collaborations are how we become more than the sum of our parts.
Beer is so much more than what's in the bottle for the men and women who make it and sell it. There are real livelihoods at stake, and they spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about the industry they serve. These are their forward-looking thoughts, and their critical thinking on what's happening now.
We aim to create events that inspire the industry and its consumers alike. From small, intimate gatherings, to larger, compelling experiences for craft beer's most important audiences, GBH and its partners are continuously re-inventing the craft beer narrative.
GBH in Residence
Sometimes to get the real story, you have to go beyond the brewery tour and the tasting room, and literally join the crew in their daily grind. For the Residence series, GBH spends a day or two working alongside brewers, cidermakers, cellarmen and delivery drivers. It's what the craft industry looks like on its own terms.
They say beer is responsible for civilization. These essays are our way of intersecting with the larger world of storytelling and criticism that makes the observed life worth drinking.
Every beer, no mater how humble, has a platonic ideal. And depending on the context, you might just get the perfect pour. This series is devoted to those moments in which we feel we may have discovered the perfect time, place, and people with which a beer's best life has been lived.
Inspired by master internet curator, Jessica Stanley, Read.Look.Drink. captures the most inspiring and thought-provoking content that burrowed into the mind of The GBH collective this past month. Great reads, stunning images, and beers that chart new territory submitted from our network across the US and Europe.
Drinking alone just got better. Because now you're drinking with all of us.
Elaborting on the implications of big plays, smart moves, and otherwise curious indicators of a possible future for the craft and business of beer-making
Wherever there's a house devoted to the craft, GBH will find them. Big and small, near and far, old school and avant garde, they all play a role in the next generation of beer.
The Cultivated Beer
GBH goes to the source in this new series, starting with hop farms, and soon venturing in to the grain, fruit, and even the water that goes in to your beer. As the industry grows, these become more than ingredients, they become relationships. And that's how you cultivate a beer.
Keep up with the business of GBH as we help re-invent breweries, kick off great new projects, and annouce exciting collaborations. Our growing team of strategists, designers, videographers, and producers are insatiable.
Beer is a global culture — often the only passport you need to to see a people and a place for who they truly are. GBH's travels take you deeper than a brewery tour, or a night out on the town — we connect with the influencers in the local brewing scene, capture their stories, and show you how the future of beer is shaping up, on a global scale.
Some beers really are about more than what's in the bottle. These stories share the impact, origin story, or spirit of a beer you may already love, but know almost nothing about. These are the beers that inspire us in more ways that one.
Uppers & Downers
World Barista Champion, Stephen Morrissey + Michael Kiser of Good Beer Hunting have been working with some of the most creative brewers and roasters in the country to create and showcase innovative coffee beers, and bring together two of our most progressive craft cultures. Through a series of festivals, educational and competitive events, the series has inspired some amazing creations that explore the edges of our collective palates, technical knowledge, and artistry.
With some stories you only get once chance to do it right. So we don't worry about keeping it short or "going viral," because capturing the in-depth stories of breweries past and present requries a narative approach. And the only limit on the attention of today's online audinces is the value of the story being told.
