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.

Episode 59 – Auburn Road Vineyards, Winery and Enoteca – Scott and Julianne Donnini

This episode features Scott and Julianne Donnini of Auburn Road Vineyard and Winery.  “Growing grapes is an art.”

Scott and Julianne were both practicing attorneys in the City of Philadelphia.  They had reached a time in their lives where they did some searching about the life that they wanted for their future.  It was over a bottle of wine that the conversation of a winery took shape.  They had no idea how to farm, grow grapes or make wine.  They drew from their experiences in Italy to create a vision of what guided them to open Auburn Road.  When it opened in November of 2007 it was the 26th winery in New Jersey.  Today it thrives as a social hub, a mini vacation spot and a destination that transports you to experience some tremendously wonderful wines.  117 Sharptown-Auburn Rd, Pilesgrove, NJ 08098 – (856) 769-9463 – www.AuburnRoadVineyards.comFacebook

Episode 57 – Grand Illusion Hard Cider – Chad Kimmel

This episode features Chad Kimmel of Grand illusion Hard Cider.The name Grand Illusion Hard Cider was inspired by magic. Slight of hand if you will.  The inspiration for this cider comes from the tasting rooms that you find at breweries. Originally conceived to be a tasting room for wine, Chad made a serendipitous pivot into cider and opened his own vision for what a craft American cidery should be.  He draws his inspiration from his own experiences and and the ciders that he has tried.  Putting his own spin on the flavor profile.  Grand Illusion opened its doors on February 2018 and has quickly become an anchor attraction in downtown Carlisle, PA.     26 W High St, Carlisle, PA 17013 – (717) 462-4716 – www.grandillusioncider.comFacebook

Episode 55 – Punch Buggy Brewing Company – Patrick Coyne, John Riley and James Baker

This episode features Patrick Coyne, John Riley and James Baker of Punch Buggy Brewing Company.This brewery finds its origins as many breweries do.  The foundation of home brewing, making beer and sharing it with friends.  The idea was born out of a slightly different path.  Attending beer festivals and becoming interested and excited by beer.  Well, once you attend a beer festival you must try home brewing.  Of course the first beers are hit and miss.  But, eventually you begin to dial in the recipes and procedures.  Punch Buggy is thriving because of the “not going to quit” attitude of its founders.  They just about ran out of beer on their opening weekend.  They realized they needed larger and more productive equipment.  They collaborated and learned from other local breweries in the region.  They have experienced growing pains.  Now, every beer that they make is better than the last.  Their beers have character, flavor and complex notes.  All of the people behind Punch Buggy are determined, humble and hungry to offer the best beer possible.1445 N American St, Philadelphia, PA 19122 -www.punchbuggybrewing.comFacebook

Episode 54 – 5:dirty – Melissa and Kyle Reed

This episode features Melissa and Kyle Reed of 5:dirty. Melissa has a love for dirty martinis.  For her and her mom Maria, it’s their everyday go to cocktail.  The search was on to make the perfect dirty martini.  Kyle and Melissa’s reputation grew and their friends and family would encourage them to bring their dirty martini concoctions every time that they would come over.  By batching the martini it would allow them more time to spend with their guests.  The idea came to them… wouldn’t it be great if we could actually bottle this so everyone could have it?  5:dirty has become a hit.  They make 2 versions, the Dab of Dirty and the Double Dirty.  Pick up a bottle or two, pour yourself a martini and enjoy the episode. www.5dirty.comFacebook
