Episode 72 – Manatawny Still Works – Max Pfeffer

This episode features Max Pfeffer of Manatawny Still Works.

Max graduated Penn State University with a degree in chemical engineering.  He began home brewing when he was in college.  This led to him discovering the UC Davis Master Brewing program.  His education and experience led him to a stint with Victory Brewing Company and then to Sly Fox Brewery.  One day, Owner John Giannapoulas, called Max into his office.  He approached Max about opening a distillery.  Max knew beer but not distilled spirits.  That was over 8 years ago.  Today, not only does Max know distilling, he excels at it on a high level.  He and his team are producing whiskeys that are incredible.  What is coming out of the barrels now are spirits full of character, flavor and complexity.  This is a must visit for craft spirit lovers.  When you do you will become a fan for life.

Episode 68 – Train Wreck Distillery – Aaron Diamond

This episode features Aaron Diamond of Train Wreck Distillery.

The seed of entrepreneurship was planted by Arron’s Grandfather, Norman Diamond.  At a very young age Aaron would help Norman make beer and wine.  After his grandfather passed, Aaron tried making his own beer and wine.  It just didn’t turn out the same.  According to Aaron it was not very good at all.  That’s when he thought it would be better to distill the bad product that he made.  He turned his sights to distilling.  He began taking classes with his father to learn how to distill.  Traveling all over the country and even London to gain the knowledge that the desired.  In 2014 they purchased a run down train station in Mount Holly.  Right on the banks of the Rancocas Creek.  In 2015 they started distilling and working on perfecting their recipes.  In July of 2017 they opened their door to the public.  Train Wreck is a vibrant distillery where people come for the spirits, the cocktails, the great entertainment and the lively banter.  From it’s humble beginnings this is no longer a train wreck but, a rousing success.
