In homage to the tail end of coolship season (for most of the world), we decided to do a coolship 101 episode. Garrett Crowell joins the show to explain what a coolship is, its history, and how it can be used in brewing. He draws on his experience as the former head brewer of Jester King in Austin, Texas, and founder of Yokefellow in Johnson City, Texas.
Sarah Jane (SJ) Curran kicked off her love of beer while studying at The Culinary Institute of America. She continued her education with a Masters from NYU, where she focused her research on beer history and education. She was the beer director at Eleven Madison Park in NYC and General Manager at Churchkey in DC. She taught beer classes for Cornell University and AGMU systems. Currently, she is the Sr. Beverage Manager for Global, US, and Canada for Marriott International. Beer Me! makes her very happy, almost as happy as she is drinking rauchbier.
