This fifth issue of Mash Tun takes you deep inside the global phenomenon of craft beer. Ludo Waldemier reports on how experimentation has come to Germany, while our co-editors report how England has been bitten by the craft brewing bug. Closer to home, Jake Guidry talks about the “other” brewery on the Illinois/Indiana border, proudly tiny One Trick Pony. Laura “Queenie” Nunez takes you inside the craft explosion in Los Angeles, with a peek inside the two-block brewing frenzy that is in Torrance. Paul Durica and Elliot Crumpley form a Prohibition one-two this time out, with Durica detailing the lost history of the Chicago “beer flat,” a homebrew/speakeasy combo that took the White City by storm. And Crumpley tells the strange tale of Congress’ own personal bootlegger, known as the Man in The Green Hat. Pat Fahey joins our pages for a new Q&A feature on brewing chemistry, while Kate Slagoski checks in on adjuncts and coffee. Ian Wise checks in on cheese, and Sarah Morton schools you in glassware in the latest edition of Mash Tun’s exclusive comics feature.This is all wrapped up with a bow with a special section on Chicago’s New Wave of brewers and the best in label art from around the globe.
