The Master Brewers Association of the Americas shares membership news via its now-monthly MBAA Communicator. All issues, current and past, are available online. A new column by editors Bob Seaman (Yuengling) and Mark Sample (Left Hand Bwg Co), The Ponderous Pint, has all the makings of being both informative and fun. Even if you’re not a member of the MBAA, check it out. I look forward to reading responses the pair receives to their most recent question about dry hopping. The January edition also includes an article contributed by Briess about Pale Ale Malt. We were invited to write about a different specialty malt in each issue of The Communicator this year. How did they know that’s one of our fav topics? It’s the “Mix ‘n’ Mash” article.
