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.

Episode 51 – Sourland Mountain Spirits – Ray and Sage Disch

This episode features Ray and Sage Disch of Sourland Mountain Spirits.  “Be a maker, not a taker.”We truly had a fantastic time sitting down with Ray and Sage.  Back in the early 90’s Ray was inspired by a story that he heard on the radio about a husband and wife who worked as commodity traders in Chicago.  They left their high paying jobs to open a craft brewery in Chi-town.  Leading the charge and laying the groundwork, Ray helped to sponsor legislation to help to change the laws for New Jersey breweries.   In 1995 Triumph Brewing Company introduced craft beer to the masses in Princeton, NJ.  Fast forward to 2015 Ray along with his wife Erica made the decision to open a craft distillery in their hometown of Hopewell.  It is a family affair at their farm distillery.  What you hear is that Ray brings people together.  He builds teams and develops an environment of creativity and excellence.  He shares the fascinating journey to create their award winning Gin and their portfolio of first class spirits.  Sage discusses what’s next for the distillery and how he is helping to guide them onto a bigger stage.
