On this season of the Beer Edge podcast, I’m talking with writers, brewers, and others about how COVID has impacted their local beer communities across the country and the world. We start today with writer, editor, and my friend, Ben Keene, the former editor of Beer Advocate Magazine. Ben moved out to Seattle a few years ago and Beer Advocate Magazine quietly faded from existence. The loss of BA Magazine, while sad, has given Ben the opportunity to write more. He regularly contributes to VinePair, Sip Magazine, Craft Beer and Brewing, and many others. We discuss some of his recent articles in our conversation and hear about how the Seattle beer scene has fared in the past year.
