What It's About

Grab a cold one and join the Brew Crew for a live broadcast of the BS* + Beer Show! BS* + Beer is an independent, grassroots movement to share building science knowledge through a weekly online talk show as well as local meet-up groups. Their mission is simple, "To spread BS* far and wide, and to have fun doing it." Learn more at thebsandbeershow.com.

During Tuesday’s show, the team will take a deep dive into the four control layers within a building envelope -- water, air, vapor and thermal -- that must be addressed in order to build a durable home. They’ll discuss climate zones and how these layers are affected utilizing different assemblies and products, as well as the construction issues that may arise if the control layers are not recognized. The effect of labor and material shortage on this equation will also be explored.

Bar opens at 3:30. BS* begins shortly thereafter.
