By far the most pleasurable aspect of writing a book about beer is getting to meet the brewers. It's also the most frustrating, because it's the aspect I can never communicate very well. I was digging around looking for information a moment ago and stumbled on this fantastic video by Schneider and Sohn which is all hinged to the words of Brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler. Every brewery should emulate this model--brewers are easily the best people to speak on behalf of a company's beer. You get just enough of a taste of Hans-Peter in this that you can probably see what it was like to spend a couple hours with him in Kelheim.
