The Host

John Bryce is the host and producer of The Master Brewers Podcast. He is a brewer, entrepreneur, and lover of all things technical brewing.

The Music

All music on the show is by Rolando Random & The Young Soul Rebels, which has an interesting connection to both the brewing industry and John Bryce's Berlin education...but that's a long story.
