It is not every day that I get to record a podcast episode in a brewery. For that matter, I don’t usually drink beer while conducting an interview. But for our interview with the hosts of the FOSS+Beer podcast, we set up our mikes in Beryl’s Beer Co. in Denver, Colo. And since Beryl’s is in the same building as the Legal Talk Network, we invited some LTN people to participate. And of course we also had to invite Beryl’s head brewer to chime in.

I previously wrote about the FOSS+Beer podcast, which I described as A Podcast About Law, Tech and Open Source. And Beer. Craft Beer. Since I was in Denver and the FOSS folks are in nearby Boulder, we invited them down to talk about open source software, podcasting and, yes, beer. From the FOSS+Beer podcast, we were joined by hosts Mark Donald, Jilayne Lovejoy and the (formerly) mysterious Boups the Beerman. We were also joined by Trent Carlyle, an owner and the chief technology officer of Legal Talk Network, and Chad Jolly, LTN’s senior software developer. Last but not least, we were joined briefly by Eric Nichols, head brewer from Beryl’s Beer Co.

It was fun to do and it might even be fun to listen to. So if you have time over this long holiday weekend, give it a listen.
