We start today with writer, editor, and my friend, Ben Keene, the former editor of Beer Advocate Magazine. Founded in 2007, BeerAdvocate Magazine went on to become one of the beer industry’s best publications. And to be sure, I’m a little biased. I wrote a monthly column for the magazine for more than a decade. In more than 130 columns, I wrote about my love of lager, the rise and fall and rise again of extreme brewing, and about all the little idiosyncrasies that make the craft beer industry the colorful place that it is. And for five of those years, I was fortunate enough to have Ben Keene edit my work.

Ben moved out to Seattle a few years ago and Beer Advocate Magazine quietly faded from existence. He had a kid and spends a lot of time, as I do, balancing the joys and challenges of parenting and the rigors of trying to write words about beer during a pandemic. The loss of Beer Advocate Magazine, while sad, has given Ben the opportunity to write more. He regularly contributes to VinePair, Sip Magazine, Craft Beer and Brewing, and many others. We discuss some of his recent articles in our conversation and hear about how the Seattle beer scene has fared in the past year.
