On this episode of the Beer Edge podcast, Andy Crouch speaks with Josh Noel of the Chicago Tribune. Crouch grew up in and around Chicago and spent much of his youth reading the Trib. These days, things are tough for the hometown paper. It’s a subject Josh will discuss and you should certainly follow his Twitter account, at hopnotes, for more info. Josh is the author of the acclaimed Barrel Aged Stout and Selling Out, about the rise of Goose Island and eventual sale to Anhueser-Busch, and is one of the country’s best regarded beer writers. As happens when you interview a journalist, Josh tries to turn the tables and interview the host on a few occasions. It's an occupational hazard. In this interview, Crouch and Noel talk about how COVID-19 is impacting the mainstream media, how when 3 Floyds speaks people listen, and they break down the state of beer journalism and writing today.
