It’s another episode of the GBH Collective, an ongoing series of interviews where we dive a little deeper with Good Beer Hunting contributors and friends on topics of writing, beer and the stories you read and hear from GBH. In this episode we’re checking back in with another member of the GBH team, Alyssa Pereira. You’re likely to have come across her words in recent months, as she’s profiled Russian River, told the story of Firestone Walker’s unexpected flagship 805 Blonde Ale, and given an in-person recap of one of the country’s most beloved beer fests, the Firestone Walker Invitational. Most recently however, she’s also become a voice here on Good Beer Hunting’s podcasts, bringing a new collection of interviews from her home state of California, which isn’t just the most populous state, but one of the most prolific when it comes to beer and all the stories that can be told around it. In our own conversation, you’ll learn what it’s like for Alyssa to add the title of podcast host to her repertoire, as well as the background of what took her from covering the music industry to her day job at the San Francisco Chronicle and now acting as a journalist also covering the U.S. beer industry. She’s been a welcome and important addition to GBH’s editorial team, and I hope this chat gives you some insight to appreciate her work even more. This is Alyssa Pereira, reporter, podcast host, and Golden State treasure. Listen in.
