Welcome 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 journalist and media folks from within the beer industry on topics of writing, beer, and the stories you read and hear from GBH and others.
In this episode, we’re going to catch up with Bryan Roth, our Sightlines editor. He’s in charge of the research and analysis GBH conducts into trends and business dealings in the beer industry, but also dives headlong into a variety of meaty topics in his feature stories.
He’s been even more prolific than usual of late, covering everything from the death of Stouts (or lack thereof, as you’ll hear) to an investigation into breweries’ handlings of workplace issues like sexual harassment, racial discrimination, and other forms of exclusion.
But first, we’re going to jump back to the just before the holiday when he wrote about the 30-year history of one of beer’s most iconic advertisements.
This is Bryan Roth. Listen in.
