Beer School is a podcast designed to introduce people who are only familiar with mass-produced American beer to a wider range of beer styles. It is generally presented on a beginner's level and focuses on widely available commercial beers. The hosts are not home brewers and home brewing is not a common topic of the show.
While the hosts are enthusiastic, the information they give is frequently inaccurate. They also know almost nothing about any beer not distributed in California and often display an extreme west coast bias, at one point asserting that brewers outside of the West Coast don't understand how to use hops. However, the show sometimes features interesting guests.
