Great Blue Brewing Co.

Often times we tell the story of the already established brewery. This week we're talking to Chris Waldren (Co-Owner and Head Brewer) from Great Blue Brewing Co out of Boscawen, NH. This small scale breweries doors aren't even open yet and they’re still in the process of purchasing their brew systems. We go over building a business plan, the trials and tribulations of opening a brewery, and how to grow a brand with the help of social media. 


Be sure to help Chris on his way to opening and invest in the brewery using their mainvest! Which helps them now, and gives you a kickback later.

When a breweries bedrock is built on trial and error to ensure that the best possible product can be enjoyed by their patrons we're here for it. Our friends over at Spyglass Brewing Company in Nashua NH are doing just that. Known for their Fruited Sours and Hazy IPAs (trust us they rule), the folks over at Spyglass are just simply making great beer of any variety. We're excited for their new location to open up in the future. So listen back and drink some beer.

One of New Hampshire oldest brewery is right over the boarder in Nashua NH. We’re talking about Martha’s exchange. We had the pleasure of talking to Greg Ouellette, Head Brewer at Martha's Exchange Nashua who has been there Since 2001. Greg gives a great retrospective of New Hampshire beer and how much it’s grown over the years. Greg talks about how he get's to brew what he wants to drink but also still likes the challenges of learning to brew some of the newer styles but makes sure to put his own spin on it. If you get the change to go to Martha's Exchange do it and grab some food there too.


Cheers

Our friends Devin and Beth over at Wildbloom Beer are making some of the coolest beer New Hampshire has to offer. Devin (head brewer) is fascinated with yeast and the flavor profile it gives beer making the beer coming out from Wildbloom super delicious and crushable (Matt hates that word). Hear the story of this amazing husband and wife duo whose dream to open a brewery was pretty much set in stone on their first date. It's a fun episode.


Cheers!

In the heart of their self proclaimed "Sleepy Town" is a new brewery that is hoping to be the catalyst of promoting the community first and quenching a thirst with some delicious beer. We're talking about Hopothecary Ales located in North Reading. We sat down with Steven Garbardi (Co-Founder and Kevin McComiskey (Founding Brewer & Brewmaster) over at their location. This episode focusing on how both Steven and Kevin went from professionals in the medical field to home brewers to now owning and operating a brewery. We also finally discuss what a Dry Stout actually is, we weren't ashamed to ask. Make sure to hop on over to Hopothecary Ales grab a pint and some of there food, both are awesome.

There is nothing better than a well crafted cocktail. The perfect harmony of flavors that spirits have is almost poetic in a sense. We got the chance to talk with Zachary Robinson Co Founder at Short Path Distillery in Everett, Ma. We got to talk about how this former chemist became a distiller (well chemist still in a sense) and how that career path molded out of a love for Scotch. Short Path is known for their Gins and believe it or not their Triple Sec. This distillery also doubles as a Cock Tail Bar crafting some of the best drinks we’ve had period, plus we went on Tiki Night who doesn’t love a umbrella in a drink?


Cheers!

It’s almost magic when you walk into a brewery that is right in the middle of an industrial park and you don’t feel like you just walked into manufacturing plant. Our friends over at Alvarium Beer Company have taken their location in New Britain, CT and have just done that with cool art, beautiful wooden tables, great beer and a wonderful atmosphere that pays tribute to the rich manufacturing history of New Britain. We got the chance to speak with Mike Larson (Co-Founder) & Cherokee Robbins (Head of Sales and Distribution) about the history of Alvarium and the city in which it resides in, the importance of social media in beer today and how important the human aspect is in beer when it comes to sales and distribution. This episodes a lot of fun and they love dogs so it’s a win win.


Make sure to check out Alvarium!
