TAPS and Beerology Team Up For Podcasts

Mirella Amato, published beer writer/speaker and founder of the Beerology website, has recently teamed up with TAPS Media, who runs TAPS: Canada's Beer Magazine, to produce monthly audio podcasts featuring interviews with brewers, brewery executives, and craft beer fans.

The audio podcasts, hosted by Amato, produced by 96.3fm's Joel Schonewille, and in association with TAPS Media, will provide listeners with an insiders look into the Canadian brewing industry, as Amato ventures out to events, samples various beers, talks to those closely associated with breweries and shares her views on current trends.

The first podcast was released today on both Amato's website and TAPS' website and revolves around Volo's recent Cask Days. Amato managed to speak with the colourful George Eagleson of F&M brewery, Volo publican Ralph Morana, Black Oak's brewer Adrian Popowycz and Pepperwood Bistro and Brew Pub's Paul Dickey, who all shared their time and expertise explaining cask conditioned beer.

"I really hope people will tune in monthly and educate themselves in craft beer, discovering new flavours and breweries along the way," stated a proud Amato. These podcasts will also compliment the video podcasts that TAPS Media currently produces for free subscribers, and together the two will provide a strong voice to beer drinkers nation-wide.

The first Monday of every month will feature a new podcast and you'll never miss an episode if you subscribe (free) in iTunes, or RSS. Or check out the Beerology or TAPS magazine websites.
