Focusing on local Chicagoland breweries and bottle shops, Average Joe's is a podcast about the stories behind the beer. The shop owners, head brewers, taproom managers, and customers all have a story to tell.

Informative

My constructive criticism would be to let the guest finish their statement. You tend to cut them off then when they attempt to continue you cut them off again.

Great Show - Chicago Proud

This is a great show, I highly recommend it. If your are interested in learning more about Chicago’s craft beer culture and meeting the talented brewers that make it all happen, this podcast is for you. On a special note, to JiveTurkey’s review comment: You have no idea what you are talking about, nor have any idea how the grading system works. This Bud’s for you!

Excellent Chicago-based Beer Podcast

For any Chicagoland beer enthusiast, this podcast is a must! For any non-local beer enthusiast, this podcast is still a must! Joe interviews owners, brewers, and behind-the-scene magic-makers from various Chicagoland breweries. The show typically follows a general format: who the people are, where they came from, the history of their brewery, discussion about styles of beer and personal stories, and any plans for the future. Each episode is a perfect summary of the brewery, and you’ll leave with a little extra beer knowledge under your beer gut.My only complaint with this podcast: after listening to each episode, I want to go visit that brewery, especially if I’ve never been. Now that can get expensive! But absolutely worth it. Thanks for the great content and interviews, Joe!

A must for craft beer fans!

Joe does a great job with just normal conversations with the men & women making the beer in the Chicagoland area that we all enjoy. Was such a pleasure being on his show. Now going back and listening to a bunch of them.

Better Interviewing = Better Poscast

I love listening to the podcast. Joe sits with every brewer/brewery that matters, and I learn a lot from the podcasts. There's a lot I love about it, including the intro music and the casual tone of the interviews. But the interviewing itself is too unstructured and goes off in all directions without addressing the original point. A question is asked, and before it is answered, a different question is asked. In addition, the beginning of each interview needs help. I wish the interviews would begin with a more broad view of the brewery and its history, before going off into different directions. Maybe I'm not feeling the connection to Joe's style of interviewing like others do, but it drives me nuts sometimes. Regardless of my complaints, I like listening to it, and I'll continue to do so.
