This week we take an extended look at beer.

In many ways mainstream American culture is beer culture. It's so ubiquitous that it's hard to see, in a forest for the trees sort of way, and it's too important to ignore.

So on this edition of Free Culture Radio, we talk about craft beer and the unbearable whiteness of brewing; we'll ask why Portlanders are so drawn to beer; and we'll even learn how to brew the stuff. Guests include J. Nikol Beckham, PhD, a professor of communication and cultural studies at Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia; and Jason Webb, brewmaster and founder of Unicorn Brewing Company in Portland, Oregon.
