Welcome back to another episode of the GBH Collective, a special series of interviews where we have the chance to dive a little deeper with Good Beer Hunting contributors and friends on topics of writing, beer and the stories you read and hear from GBH.

This week’s conversation is with a fan favorite: Kyle Kastranec. As one of the longest-tenured writers for Good Beer Hunting, you may have become familiar with his work through a variety of feature stories he’s written over the years. But more recently, Kyle has become a star for GBH through his Banquet and Chill blog, which includes some of the most fun, original, and thoughtful personal essays on beer I find strewn across the internet.

In recent months, you may have shared fond memories of open containers, airline drinks, dive bars, or your personal Mount Crushmore—all topics that went from Kyle’s brain to his blog, and quickly became a fun game for lots of people to play through social media. In a way, Kyle is GBH’s leader when it comes to viral content—however you want to classify it—and he continues to delight and surprise with peeks into mind and the way he views beer. And as you’ll find, it’s all very deliberate and thought out, too.

This is Kyle Kastranec, contributor, Renaissance Man, and King of Viral Media for Good Beer Hunting. Listen in...
