Porters & Stouts 101 w/world certified, Master Beer Judge, Ron Smith World Class beer traveler, certified cicerone, Master BJCP Judge, and beer and brewing educator, Ron Smith joined the boys at the round table at Alley’s Alehouse for tonight’s episode of Blind Pig Confessions.
We may have told more humorous stories than talk strictly beer on this one, but Ron is full of great stories from his many beer infused travels and the numerous classes he instructs. Finding a love for all beer and diving into homebrewing back in the ‘87, Ron has won numerous awards on the state level as well as a Gold Medal in the AHA’s National Homebrew Competition, the largest homebrewing competition in the world. Lots of great conversations and many brews slayed on this episode as we got into, not just those glorious dark brews, but butter beers, Budweiser’s guerilla tactics, and why Quaff On’s Common Necessity reminds Cowboy of Xmas. Tune in to learn more about Mr. Ron Smith and how you can attend classes and work toward getting your MBA(Master of Beer Appreciation). Many of Indy’s great brewers will tell you they got their start learning all they could from Mr. Smith. Cheers!
Shout outs in this episode include: Chilly Water Brewing Co., Redemption Alewerks, & Taxman Brewing Company
