Javi sits down with owner and brewer of Hawthorne, CA's Los Angeles Ale Works, Kip Barnes. Kip shares his Cinderella story of going from a crowd sourced startup gypsy brewer to a full fledged brick and mortar craft brewery in the latest craft beer hot bed, the South Bay.
We are joined by our friend Jason Brewer of Listermann Brewing / Triple Digit Brewing. Jason wears many hats, and explains his journey from craft beer fanatic to deep in the trenches of one of Cincinnati's coolest breweries. This is a fun listen.
We are joined today by Kate Lee and Kevin Storm of Richmond Virginia's Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. Virginia is in the middle of a craft beer boom, and these guys break it down for us. Topics include their beginnings in the industry, current trends, and the magic coming out of their barrel program.
Posted a little late, we are joined this past week with Simon Brown of Claremont Craft Ales. Claremont Craft Ales is in the often overlooked Inland Empire of Southern California. Simon and Javi talk about the current climate of the craft beer community, Claremont's beginnings and lots more shop talk.
This week, we are joined by Cigar City Brewing's Brewmaster Wayne Wambles. Wayne takes us through his journey as a homebrewer in the 90's, all the way up to his prestigious position at Florida's most popular craft brewery.
