Radio Show and Podcast all about Contemporary Craft Brewing

Brew Ha Ha with Steve Jaxon & Mark Carpenter is a weekly one-hour radio show and podcast where we interview the leading craft brewers from California and across the country and talk about the business, art and science of what they do. Of course, we also taste and describe the beers we're talking about. The conversation is always lively, entertaining and informative.

Tony Magee

Steve Jaxon and Tony Magee on Brew Ha Ha.

Steve Jaxon interviews Tony Magee, founder of Lagunitas Brewing Company. Steve gets Tony to tell the story of his involvement with beer, from his very first batch of home brew through the long process of building Lagunitas into one of the biggest beer brands in the world. Tony describes the complexity of the job, its obstacles and competition. Perhaps most interesting for beer drinkers, we also hear the whole background story of how Lagunitas' signature IPA flavor was developed.
