episode 192: Buck, Yeah!


In this wide-ranging conversation with entrepreneur and ginger beer philosopher Kenny Richards, some of the topics we discuss include:

  • How Kenny left behind a career in academia to resurrect one of America’s most beloved, and yet also most forgotten drinks categories.
  • What it’s like to scale a brewery from a few barrels to a much more ambitious craft operation, and what implications that has on ingredients, people, and process.
  • We taste through 4 popular (and very different) expressions of Halyard’s ginger beers, beginning with Nicole’s Extra, followed by Volcano Juice, The Breeze, and Mountain Aid.
  • We talk about the best ways to use alcoholic ginger beer in cocktails, and especially the numerous opportunities there are to innovate within the buck/mule category.
  • We discuss what it means to become, be, and remain authentic in the age of peak Hazy IPAs, glitter beer, and hard seltzer.
  • We cover why Vermonters are constantly stuffing beers in their pockets, the aesthetics of a perfect moonrise, what to drink with Enlightenment philosopher Baruch Spinoza,
  • And much, much more.
