Episode 174 – Brewery Tours On Tour – Glenn Smith

This episode featured ⁠Glenn Smith⁠ of ⁠Brewery Tours⁠.

We got to tour Lancaster with Glenn and visit three breweries. What you get to experience is a wonderful education of beer and a guided tasting of three breweries that offer an array of different expressions. Brewery Tours is also a history lesson into the highlighted city and beer itself. Glenn gives us the flavor of the tour and you get to hear a snippet of some of what you can expect. It’s so much more than a beer crawl. It’s fun for the novice and the beer aficionado alike. Prost!

Episode 129 – von C Brewing Co. – Jay, Rick and Eric von Czoernig and Michael Froelich

This episode features Jay von Czoernig, Rick von Czoernig, Eric von Czoernig and Michael Froelich of von C Brewing Brewing Company. von C got started as a senior project for Jay while he attended North Eastern University.

This is when he wrote the business plan in 1993.

The von Czoernig family history of brewing goes back to 1860.

The lineage reaches back to Christian Schmidt who founded the largest brewery in Philadelphia.

Finally in 2020 they were ready to put that business plan into action.

Today what is retro is cool.

They brew the OG Pils which is their nod to the Schmidt’s legacy.

This is what helped to make Schmidt’s a household name.

At von C you get to drink brewing history… past , present and future.

We had such an amazing time with the Von C team.

Their story is as captivating as the memorabilia in the brewery.

However, the reason you come is for the incredible beer and lively energy.

Prost!

Episode 118 – Invertase Brewing Co. – Stephen, Karen and Steve Zolnay

This episode features Stephen, Karen and Steve Zolnay of Invertase Brewing Company.

When Stephen was 14 he bought his dad a homebrew kit for Father’s Day.  Their first collaboration as father and son was a terrible pale ale that they made on the kitchen stove.  That beginning experience got them hooked on making beer together.  They graduated into making their own recipes, reading the books and talking shop with fellow homebrewers.  They even grew their own hops in the backyard.  It wasn’t long before the idea of starting their own brewery was conceived.  This is a gem of a brewery that makes exceptional beer.  It most certainly needs to be on your brewery bucket list.  Just don’t ask Stephen what’s coming up next.  The beer will tell him when it is ready.

Episode 115 – Kenwood Original – Matt Serra

This episode features Matt Serra of Kenwood Original.

Matt was working for Victory Brewing when the seed for a light beer option was planted.  Looking at the craft beer landscape he believed there was void for a light beer.  The idea for a Philly brand was born.  His experience in sales and marketing is helping to launch a light beer that is packed with flavor.  Kenwood Original is named for the street that Matt lived on for the first 15 years of his life.  From the first iteration of the brand they knew they had something special.

Episode 75 – Olde Bedford Brewing Company – Dave and Mary Heller

This episode features Dave Heller and Mary Heller of Olde Bedford Brewing Company.

Mary purchased Dave a Mr. Beer Kit.  The first foray into home brewing was a success.  To Mary’s surprise, it quickly developed from a hobby into an addiction to home brew.    She thought that this would entertain Dave for a couple of months and he would move on.  She had no idea that 7 years later that all of it would turn into a business.  Olde Bedford Brewing is their “retirement job”.  They even grow their own hops on their ranch.  Quickly they developed followers of their beer and the brewery began to blossom from there.  Passion drives the grain to glass philosophy.  “Join the Whiskey Rebellion… drink beer” is their slogan.  We had a tremendous time sitting down with Dave and Mary on the podcast.  We learned so much about the history of Bedford, beer and the brewery.  Take a side trip off the PA Turnpike and go visit them.  You’ll be glad that you did.

Episode 63 – Artillery Brewing Co. – Mike Loveless and Sean Naughton

This episode features Mike Loveless and Sean Naughton of Artillery Brewing Co.

Mike started as a home brewer in 2013.  His wife didn’t enjoy the house smelling like a brewery any longer.  Mike had spent his early life in Europe and had become enamored with the cannon and history.  Paul Zippel is Mike’s partner and they went looking for a place to expand their home brewing expertise.  Sean came on board in November of 2020.  He brought his beer and science background to Artillery.  The team has been satisfying beer fans since April 2021.  Their journey is fascinating and this episode provides insight into their young experiences.  By the quality and character of their beer, you’d swear that they have been opened for years.

Episode 62 – Jack Fritz – Four Fingers Brewing Company

This episode features Jack Fritz of Four Fingers Brewing Company.

Jack has enjoyed craft beer from as early as he can remember trying his first beer.  He introduced craft to his dad Ross.  Ross began experimenting and brewing beer in his home.  He was getting really good at it.  So good in fact that they took the vacant space in a building that they own and opened Four Fingers Brewing Brewing Co.  They swung open the doors in late January of 2020 just before the Covid restrictions went into place.  The timing turned into a blessing in disguise.  It has given them the time to hone their beer and dial in the process.  This young craft brewery is producing some really fine beer.
