Double Hopbeat Podcast was created after James was unsuccessful in finding a podcast which perfectly mashed craft beer and homebrewing. So he did the first thing any smart husband would do, asked his wife Shannon to co-host and Double Hopbeat was born.
It’s hard to find the time to balance drinking craft beers, exploring new breweries and sharing new experiences with friends when you’re working full time jobs and living in different neighborhoods. Whether you are a beer snob or beer newbie looking to share a laugh and learn something new about homebrewing or craft beer, this podcast is for you. Join hosts James and Shannon as they share unique perspectives on beers, homebrewing and brewery experiences.
After graduating from college with a degree in biology and working for years in the biotech industry, James utilized his background to start his own homebrewery. James has been homebrewing for over 10 years now and has worked his way up from homebrew kit to an electric all grain brewing system. James loves sharing his passion for brewing with the community. His favorite beer styles are West Coast IPAs and lagers.
Shannon started out with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and moved into Event Planning after graduation. Over the years Shannon has watched James as he explored the world of craft beer. As a result she started to appreciate and sample the many varieties the wide world of beer has to offer. With a growing interest in homebrewing, Shannon hopes to inspire other women to expand their craft beer and brewing knowledge. Shannon's favorite beer styles are sours and blonde ales.
