Jesse and I headed out to Fairfield to meet and talk to the folks from Swine City Brewing. We talked to owner Dan Ebben and his crew about opening a brewery and what to expect from Swine City when they open in the next month or two.
Jesse and Tom invited Frank Seta, owner and bar tender at the Lucky Turtle, over for a conversation about traveling and beer. We started off with what local Cincinnati beer we’d bring with us on a trip, either to drink by ourselves or share with friends we met along the way. From there the conversation ranged into how to travel with beer, either driving or flying and where to travel with or for beer. We wrapped things up with a discussion on beer destinations cities and if Cincinnati is one, or what it’d take for us to become one.
We also had some technical difficulties while filming, so please forgive the slides at the beginning, the audio is great throughout and the video picks up around the 11-minute mark. We promise to have these issues sorted out before next time.
Jesse and I sat down with Fifty West owner Bobby Slattery to get the details on this weekend’s Punch Out: Round 2 event. We also get treated to early info on cans and bottles coming from Fifty West later this year!
Jesse Folk, one of the moderators from the Greater Cincinnati Craft Beer Society, joined me at MadTree last night with their Head of Barrel Aging, Simon Kretchik, to talk all things Funk Day 2017 (this Sunday, May 28th at 10 am). We also covered lots of great MadTree info and general sour beer info from TTA to different types of barrels!
