This is GBH Out Loud, and I’m Ashley Rodriguez.
Today you’ll hear GBH contributor Beth Demmon read “Witch (Craft) Beer — How a New Wave of Brewers are Incorporating Magic into Beer,” published on Good Beer Hunting’s website on October 31, 2019.

Part of Beth’s fascination with witches, as you’ll hear her discuss, is primal. It’s the search for the unknown, and the belief that there are things around us we cannot always see or immediately understand—but which can have an outsize impact on our lives.
Here’s Beth reading “Witch (Craft) Beer — How a New Wave of Brewers are Incorporating Magic into Beer.” Listen in.
