Hear a wonderful tale of a husband and wife who started one of Los Angeles' most popular craft breweries. Javi sits down with Jonathan (Porter) and Laurie Porter to discuss their beginnings, the challenges in starting a brewery and subsequent satellite tasting room. We can't forget, we also talk about one of their most popular beers, BA OE, because quite frankly, barleywine is life.
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.
