The Kalevala, the national epic of Finland, describes the creation of the world in 200 verses, but needs 400 in which to explain the origins of beer. This is no small subject, which is why I’ve devoted much of my life learning about beer, the brewers who make it, the breweries where they work and a variety of beer cultures. I’ve got stories to tell you about all of these subjects and more.
