Quick Introduction & Mission Statement

Chop and Brew 5My name is Chip Walton. For the last three years, I’ve been producing videos for Northern Brewer Homebrew Supply – chief among them Brewing TV. I have parted ways with NB & BTV, but I’m obsessed as ever with homebrewing and video production. And I want to continue telling stories of life’s great pleasures – good eats and drinks. Enter “Chop & Brew.”

Chop & Brew is a blog and webshow about life’s great food and fermentations. A large focus will be on homebrewing of all sorts – extract, partial mash, BIAB, and all-grain; ales, lagers, and experimental brews. C&B will also feature and highlight other home fermentations such as wine, mead, sake and kombucha. And we’ll also talk about cooking, barbecuing, grilling, roasting, smoking, curing, freezing — and the spaces wherein food and fermentation meet.

I’m proud to present this blog and show alongside my friends which include amateur and professional foodies and homebrewers. We’re going to have a great time and hope you follow us here at, as well as on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Blog posts and short-form “Lagniappe” videos will appear fairly regular with longer-format “Episodes” released when content and consideration merits.

This project is just beginning. I’m working on a long list of episode ideas and acquiring equipment that will result in the highest production quality I can afford. Cheers!
