Podcast: Craft brewing chatter from Carson Souza at Pig Minds
This episode features a remote podcast with Pig Minds Brewing head brewer Carson Souza. We do our best to extract his beginnings and discover out he’s been brewing to his own soundtrack, and then some! It’s a wild ride through some deep conversation from a bright and rising star in the craft brewing scene. We also do some tasting of his newest beer called Juicy Minds, a clear and clean version of the New England IPA…or perhaps, it’s the Midwest IPA?! Add another tasty treat with a very solid Hefeweizen, and we finished the night off with a spicy sipping of Kent’s Chipotle Porter home brew (which incidentally, blended fabulously with Carson’s Maple Porter…just saying).
We also put Pig Minds operations manager, Shane Johnson, to the test with a “Real or Fake – Bands and Brewery Collaborations“…yes, Kid Rock, ACDC, Pearl Jam and Warren Haynes all drop into the trivia fun. Speaking of collaboration beers, we do a fun tasting of Wood-Aged Bitches Brew from DogFishHead, a tribute to Miles Davis famous jazz-fusion masterpiece. This beer is worth seeking out, with notes of sweet roast coffee, and aromas of vanilla, licorice and chocolate. We got wood, too:)
All this while our home brew club friends from Forest City Brewers hung out in the brewery for their monthly tasters guild.
