Josh and Sass spent some of their Saturday at Against the Grain Brewery talking with two of the co-founders, Andrew and Sam. The guys give an inside look at ATG, their story, and art, with loads of other insights. They shared plenty of ATG’s highlight beers but the guys sampled Found Word, Citra Ass Down, and Sho’nuff. Go check them out and, while you’re at it, take a listen to this week’s fantastic episode.

All artists have their own style and voice, and in this three way collaboration all were realized. We visited Remnant Brewing and learned the story behind this collaboration beer between them, Gilded Skull, and Wandering Soul, a few of our favorite brewers. We hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed drinking this special beer. You can find this beer in select stores and at Remnant in Bow Market.

Running Marathons and half marathons is not something the Brew Roots crew is familiar with, but our guest this week certainly is. Our new friend Geoffrey is the founder and brewer at ZēLUS.


Geoffrey started ZēLUS with a drive to deliver beers with all the great flavor of a traditional craft beer while keeping ABV’s low and nutrients high. 


We know this episode got us motivated to start training for our next marathon.


To find out how to get your hands on ZēLUS's beer make sure to check out their website https://www.zelusbeer.com/

The air is getting crisper and the temperatures are dropping here in New England. For the Brew Roots Crew it’s the perfect time to enjoy some amazing local Ciders. 


So, we made our way to Lookout Farm in Natick, Massachusetts to talk about Cider and Beer with our new friends Rich (Sales Manager) and Aaron (Head Brewer).


We learned a lot about Lookout Farm's commitment to sustainability and how much of what they grow at the farm goes into their ciders, beers, and onsite restaurant. 


It's harvest season so go to Lookout Farm, drink some Cider, eat some food at their new restaurant "The Lookout" and pick your own apples. You know Fall Stuff. 


For more information check out their website https://www.lookoutfarm.com

Cheers
