Getting Closer

The Podcast in Full Effect

It’s that moment when you realize, “This is real”. This is really going to be happening. Butterflies… Nausea… Dry Mouth. The car keeps moving forward and the moment is getting closer. I have taken this ride a dozen times to the LAB. I know the landmarks, the traffic lights and where to expect congestion on the road. January 2nd was a different experience. The first episode of the podcast was scheduled to be recorded. Would the computer work? Would the Microphone work? Did I forget anything?

I’m relieved to say that all worked. The 50+ minutes of recording was such an incredible experience. Now on to editing. That has been a whole different leaning process. Setting up the intro, fading in and out of music, and much time spent on YouTube. By next week the Podcast should be loaded onto Anchor, I Tunes and et al. Thanks to everyone that has been patient answering my questions. Let the Fermented Adventure continue. Cheers!

It’s Almost Ready

Fermented Adventure The Podcast

It’s been almost 3 years in the making. We have visited over 100+ Distilleries in 12 states. There were long drives, planes and rental cars. There were times that we got to the distillery to find they were closed for the day for a private party (Note: Yes, we have to call first). Rain, snow, thunderstorms and even skipping meals didn’t keep us from the opportunity to check out some amazing craft distilled spirits. We have met some of the nicest and most genuine down to earth people. Dedicated and inspired. Scientist and geniuses with a still.

It started with the idea for a Facebook site to document our “adventures”. Then came the Instagram page. A few months ago we decided that we wanted to share the stories of the people that we get to meet along the way. The first interview is tomorrow at Liquid Alchemy Beverages or the LAB. You will find the podcast up and running with a week on Anchor and I Tunes and wherever else we can put it. We hope that you enjoy the podcast and it becomes one of your favorites in 2019. Cheers!
