A little more than two years ago, I started exploring the world of podcasts.  I forget the details, but I know Lenn planted the seed for the idea of doing a beer podcast. He sent me a link to a wine podcast and I started listening. Being a beer enthusiast I started searching for beer related podcasts. I found a few and started listening.

It wasn’t long before I plugged a microphone into my laptop and started doing my own podcast.

The Daily Catch (that’s the name of my podcast) went through a number of name changes and format changes before I arrived at the present form. Each week I taste and talk about one Long Island beer. There’s an overview of upcoming beer-related events on Long Island. I also do several recurring features:

  • The Brewer’s Kitchen focuses on beer and food pairing. 
  • The Cottage Brewer covers the culture of brewing beer at home. 
  • Mixing It Up gives you some suggestions for mixing up beer cocktails.

On today’s show, the featured beer this week is Brooklyn Brewery’s Local 1. I tell you about the upcoming beer dinner at Southampton Publick House (May 10). There’s another installment of the Brewer’s Kitchen: paring Tapas and ice cream with an Imperial Porter. I’ll be taking you to the Brooklyn Brewery tasting room to experience that scene. And, we’ll round out the show with some beer mixology: how to make a Strawberry/Banana beer cocktail with Blue Point Toasted Lager.
