Welcome back to 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.
We’re stepping outside our normal lineup of GBH writers this week to visit with someone you may not be familiar with, but will likely want to know more by the end of our conversation.
Kyle Clark does not work in beer. He doesn’t write about beer. He has a lot of beer at home and has made his own in the past, but unless you live in the Denver metro area, his name won’t be as synonymous with a love for the industry and commenting about it as Coloradans have come to know. Kyle is the host of Next on 9News in Denver, the highest-rated newscast in the market in any time period. He’s a smart guy with a deep love for beer, and this is the kind of perspective that’s fun to drop into these podcasts every now and then to better understand a point of view that isn’t industry-specific.
Aside from intimately knowing the Denver beer scene, you’ll hear in this conversation how Kyle and his team have worked to shine a light on local laws that impact beer and dog lovers and gain an appreciation for some Colorado spots you may have never heard of before.
I sat down with Kyle while visiting Denver for the Great American Beer Festival this fall, and as we talk about beer and journalism, I hope his name is one you’ll remember. For reference, he’s also a high quality follow on Twitter.
This is Kyle Clark: news man, TV anchor, and a voice gifted for your ears. Listen in.
