Episode 242 – The 2019 NC Brewers and Music Festival

We're back at one of our favorite beer festivals of the year this week.  The NC Brewers and Music Festival at Rural Hill is a highlight of the spring festival season.  Unfortunately this year was a rainy mess but we made the best of it.  Big thanks to the ladies with the Podblast Studio for letting us use the studio.  It was a godsend to keep our equipment dry.  

On the show this week we talked with NoDa Brewing owners Todd and Suzie Ford about Brizo Hard Seltzer, Craft Freedom, the opening of the O.G. location and the concerts they are putting on at the brewery.  

Then Jay Schutz from One World Brewing about his brewery in Asheville, NC.  Starting with a one barrel set up in the basement of a downtown building and now with a second location in West Asheville they are making some great beer for Western NC.
