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 130 – The Whip Tavern – K.C. Kulp, Tim Baker and Brandon Wyatt

This episode features K.C. Kulp, Tim Baker and Brandon Wyatt of The Whip Tavern.

K.C. lost his job as an IT specialist at a major brokerage firm in NYC in 2003.  He decided to purchase a biker bar and turned it into The Whip Tavern. K.C. always had a desire to be in the restaurant business.  He opened the whip in 2005 and today it is a premier destination restaurant.  A quiet little British style country pub with delicious food and a phenomenal beer and cider selection.  The restaurant serves as much locally sourced food as possible.  The atmosphere, the portions, the flavors, the energy and the amazing service all come together to make The Whip a special Gem.  This should most certainly be on your bucket list to visit again and again and again.

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.
