That’s it! We’re putting in our Two-Weeks Notice! Or that’s what we want to say just like Mark did when starting his journey opening Two Weeks Notice Brewing Co. 

Another Western MA brewery that we seriously can’t get enough up. We hope this episode gives you more incentive to head west on your next beer trip. As always, support local and buy from the source when you can. Cheers!

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.

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.
