Episode 243 – Islander Ginger Beer at The Duke Mansion

This week’s episode took the guy’s to the historic Duke Mansion. We got a chance to sit with owner and founder of Islander Ginger Beer, Georgia Dunn and her husband Bill Belk. We learned about the rich historical importance of Ginger Beer and the impact it had in the forming of our country. Be sure to grab a four pack of this great beer at your neighborhood Harris Teeter or ask for it at your favorite bottle shop.

It was a great treat to record live from The Duke Mansion. Special thanks to their Director of Development, Pat Martin for rolling out the red carpet for us. Listen as Pat walks us through the mansion’s history and beauty. Be sure to stop by and visit the property next time you’re in the Myers Park neighborhood.

We are dubbing this episode “The Smartest Brewery in Charlotte” Why you ask? 

 Well, two reasons 1. Joe Vogelbacher is one of 19 Master Cicerones in the country.  So we discussed the exam and just how he prepared for it. Then the brewery itself uses A.I. in the production area provided by IBM to help them with production and efficiency.  Sugar Creek Brewery is doing big things there in the LoSo neighborhood. 

Plus, Melissa Bruno Johnston sits in to talk about Biere De Femme Presented by Pink Boots Society.  This year's festival takes place on March 21st at Unknown Brewery.  She fills us in on all the details.
