A couple weeks ago, we announced a new podcast—The State of Craft Beer—with our friends at Brooklyn Brewery. Now, it’s time to pour yourself a pint (it’s Friday morning, after all), get comfortable, and enjoy our first episode, recorded last week at the New Orleans stop of Brooklyn Brewery’s Mash Festival.

In this episode, Brooklyn Brewery founder Steve Hindy sits down in the Big Easy with John Holl of All About Beer Magazine; Louisiana Craft Brewer’s Guild president Andrew Godle; Abita Brewing Company president David Blossman; and NOLA Brewing COO Dylan Lintern.

Over a few beers, the panel breaks down craft-beer market growth across the country, discusses whether the definition of craft beer is outdated, and much more. What will be the next breakout style? What impact do tax breaks have on the beer industry? Listen and learn—these guys know what they’re talking about.
