#25 - July Collaborations (Part 1)

In this first episode, we head down to Phoenix in the middle of the summer to brew with some friends and attend a tap takeover. 

Our first stop was Goldwater Brewing in Scottsdale to help them get their first kettle sour going. Then, off to The Casual Pint Ocotillo for a great patio session. 

Then it was off to B.R.I. where we were brewing our first go at the now popular, "BRUT IPA"! 

In part 2, we host Grand Canyon Brewing for a sour ale that will be showcased at Real Wild and Woody 

 

Enjoy the shinanigans!!

#22 - Kick Azz Girlz of DSB (part one)

!! We couldn't be more proud, and inspired by these two wacky ladies!!

In this episode, I sit down with our brewhouse rockstars, Kristen Ewer and Tiffany Bettinger. We were drinking some brews and chatting it up for over 2 hours...so... I had to split this into two seperate episodes.

Listen in to get to know these two girls that are brewing up so much of the creativity and quality that you have grown to love from Dark Sky Brewing. 

Happy Trails and cheers to all!

#13 - Interview with Andy Schlicker (Harbottle Brewery, Tucson, AZ)

 

This episode is the audio of my LIVE interview with Andy Schlicker. He and his partners, Michael Figueira and Sam Kroack, are currently putting together Harbottle Brewing Company (formerly FLUX brewing) in Tucson. We discuss his brewing backgrowund, what his brewery is going to be all about, and get a little into the collaboration beer that we brewed this year.

Enjoy the fun! It is a long interview but if you are into the craft beer scene here in AZ, especially down south, you'll love hearing about what will surely be a huge success in 2017!

 

 

Please share this podcast with all of your beer/adventure loving friends and continue to give us suggestions on who/what/ect to do next.

#5 Homebrewers, Celiacs, & Omission…Oh my!

In episode #5, we talk with Chris and Amanda Rupka. He is a homebrewer and she is a Celiac. Both lived the life of craft beer enthusiasts in Colorado and then she found out, she couldn't drink the beer! Listen in on our conversation in the back of the brewery as we discuss their challenges and hopes for more Gluten FREE beer.
 

We also have our first Inter-State call as I interview Joe Casey and Steven Hallstone at Omission Beer Co. They let you know all about their gluten-reduced beer and the process and testing that they perform.
 

I am very proud of this latest episode and hope you enjoy it. If so, comment, subscribe, and mostly, share Brew Trails with someone you know who enjoys craft beer and the outdoors!
 

Here are some links from this episode:

An exhaustive forum from HomebrewerTalk about gluten free and gluten reduced beer and beer recipes
 

Music for today was awesomely provided by Brian White. Check out his Bandcamp music and find him playing around AZ with Viola and the Brakemen
 
White Labs sells the enzyme that we use in our gluten reduced beers. Here is a link to their information on this specific protease enzyme. Much, much more information about this topic can be found on the web or just throw me an email if you have any further questions
 
Cheers!
