Episode 32 – The Mighty Megan Hamilton (plus Half Hours on Earth)


Download the latest Harpy Hour!
At last! The long-awaited episode from last Friday!

Technical issues were in abundance last week, but in the end, I sallied forth. In this episode, I chat with Megan Hamilton, musician extraordinaire, about politics, sour beers, and why sometimes taking the money isn’t a bad thing. If I would take the money, wouldn’t you?

Half Hours on Earth is the featured brewery this episode. They make incredible farmhouse ales, saisons, and sours. For posterity, we drink at least four of them. I think that was the last of the stash, too!

Buy Megan’s albums at her Bandcamp page and of course, iTunes. She performs the theme music for Harpy Hour, obviously, but her body of work is impressive.

Listen to Harpy Hour wherever fine podcasts are heard, say hello on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Call the Harpy Hour Hotline to tell me your favourite sours or saisons: 1-833-85-HARPY (1-833-854-2779).

Exciting news awaits you at the end of the month! I can’t tell you yet but I I will soon. See you on Monday!

Episode 25 – Dani Neal of Beer & Sexism

We’ve all been there, whether it’s a beer festival, a pub/bar, or a bottle shop. The inappropriate comments, the patronizing attitude, the disbelief that you, a woman, loves and knows about beer. It’s irritating, infuriating, and frankly, we are tired of it.

Dani Neal, one of the founders and creators of Beer and Sexism, a website that tells the stories of women who work in beer, is my guest this week. This subject is especially relevant given the recent backlash against sexist beer labels and because of the BA’s strong stance supporting women and minorities from problematic behaviour. Beer and Sexism posts those stories to drive change in the industry. I love that this website exists, and as a result, this is a great interview about an timely subject.

Let’s hear your feedback about your own experiences as a woman in beer. Check out their website to share your story.
