On Hour Two we had a very cool discussion with Brewers Association Craft Beer Program Director Julia Herz. In mid-December the BA released a statement called Craft VS Crafty. The release talks about the line that has been blurred betwen what is craft beer and what is not. The BA wanted to remind folks that if a large brewer has a controlling share of a smaller producing brewery, the brewer is, by definition, not craft. They are calling for transparency in brand ownership and for information to be clearly presented in a way that allows beer drinkers to make an informed choice about who brewed the beer they are drinking. Read the statement HERE.  Julia Herz is also publisher of  She is a BJCP beer judge, award-winning homebrewer, a Certified Cicerone and leader of American Craft Beer Week. Her areas of expertise include: Resources and education on craft beer, general statistics on the craft brewer segment, beer styles and trends plus craft beer and food pairing. In her role at the Brewers Association she serves as an advocate for and educator about U.S. craft brewers, and is a spokesperson for the Association.Connie called in at the end of the show to tell us a little bit about a new Golden brewery that will be opening up called Cannonball Creek Brewing Company.
