Tap the Craft Episode 80: Dangers of Brewing

In Episode 80 we get get a little serious and discuss the dangers of operating a commercial brewery and focus our topic around kettle boil overs. We summarize the story of Kerry Caldwell’s brewery accident told on the Master Brewers Association of America’s podcast episode “Breathe, Breathe, Breathe, Scream.” There is also discussion on a few news items as well as some top 10 beer lists from listeners.
