We recently attended the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival where we sat down and talked to various brewers and folks that attended. The tables were turned on us when Rob, Amy and Eric (Ian was MIA for this) sat down with Richard and Jay from The Fear of a Craft Beer Planet podcast. They are one of the first and longest running craft beer podcasts in NJ. We talked about some of the beers they had and how we all got started along with some other funny insights.
Make sure you check them out wherever you get your podcasts and on the Osiris Network. They are also on FB, Twitter and IG. They even have a website and if look, you can find their "lukewarm" line where you an talk with Richard.
Stay tuned for our episodes from AC Beerfest coming up very shortly.

Next up is Zack from Gusto Brewing in Cape May. He tells us about his small batch brewery in the southern most part of NJ.

A giant thank you to the guys from Neck of the Woods Brewing for all of their hospitality and hosting us.

We did this episode a little while ago. We are joined by Richard from Fear of a Craft Beer Planet and we sat around and didn't talk about much until we turned this episode in to a beer tasting where most of the group tried to figure out what they were drinking.
I just have to say, we need to do it on a bigger scale and we really need to get better.
We drank beer from Workhorse Brewing out of King of Prussia, Pa. I know, not a New Jersey brewery but they have some really great packaging for their takeout beer. Check them out on social media.

Scott Akin from Thunderbolt came to the studio to talk about how he went from running a brewery tour service to getting in to the distributing part of the business and how he's doing it differently.
We had Richard from Fear of a Craft Beer Planet sit in with us again because we were missing a member in the studio but he joined us via phone. Five hour Amy didn't live up to her nickname, barely making it through this episode.
Check out Thunderbolt on social media to find out what NJ craft beer they distribute along with all of the out of state offerings that they are getting.
Follow us on social media when you get the chance and try and leave us a review. A good one if you can.

It's not a new brewery but what happened to us. We had a brewery that was supposed to visit with us but cancelled at the last minute and left us to talk about whatever we could think of. We are missing one member, as we sometimes do, but the show must go on.
Honestly, I can't remember the things we discussed but I'm at least one of us said something stupid and meaningless.

We got a visit from Megan of Human Village Brewing in Pitman. She brought over some good beer to share with us. One of the members of the show was drinking and enjoying a beer that they usually don't drink.
Rich from the Fear of a Craft Beer Planet joined us and sat in the engineering chair, filling in for the kid. We had a really good time and talked about a lot of things including how the new ABC rules will effect a small brewery like Human Village.
Thanks to Megan and Rich for joining us and make sure that you visit Human Village in Pitman, NJ and follow them on social media.
