Episode 20: Building A Beer Festival with Matt and Maureen of Summer Swelter Beer Fest

Matt and Maureen from Summer Swelter Beer Festival joined John, Rob, and co-host Kristen Wilson to talk about how you get a beer festival off of the ground. Summer Swelter has already procured a great lineup of 45+ breweries with many hailing from South Jersey for the inaugural festival that is happening in Pitman, NJ on 8/18/18!  

Coupled with great food, music, and local vendors, this festival has the foundation to become one of South Jersey's best! In addition to all of this, there is a special VIP session from 12-1 PM featuring a ton of beers you will only be able to get here!  

The Festival runs from 1-5 PM for non-vip's and tickets are available at

We took the show on the road again this week and stopped by to chat with Geoff and Lori of Zed's Beer in Marlton, NJ.  

Zed's is known for their unique, approachable craft beer.  Zed's brewing philosophy is brewing low IBU an ABV beer without sacrificing big flavors allowing patrons to have a few and still be able to hold a conversation! Creativity abounds at Zed's where you can get an IPA or order a shandy, or even get their take on a White Russian (It is Delicious!).

So sit back and enjoy this fun episode!
