Over Beers - Heavy Reel Brewing Co

I had the opportunity to sit down with Jeff and Jessie Greco to talk about how you open a brewery, get engaged and keep your full time job while you wear out a lane on the Garden State Parkway getting it all done. Plus make great beer at the same time!

Over Beers - Two Ton Brewing

I had the opportunity to sit down with Jim Barbiere head brewer of Two Ton Brewing in Kenilworth New Jersey.  We met in their downstairs “speakeasy” taproom a long with his father Doc the CFO, to talk about their journey to opening about two months ago.

Over Beers - Central Jersey Brewery Roundtable

After the show back in September on the ABC rule changes, when we had three breweries together on the show, I wanted to do another one where we had a few brewery owners but spoke about the beer, not the state rules.  So I asked each brewery to bring two beers so we could sit down and discuss what went in to the beer, why they brewed and how they felt about the beer. I think you’ll find it was a really interesting discussion and we had a lot of fun. Last Monday, I sat down with Mike from Bradley Brew Project, Kevin from Dark City and Pete from Jughandle to do just that.

Over Beers - Screamin' Hill Brewery

Throughout history brewing and farming have always been tied together.  You brewed with ingredients that were nearby and for farmers that meant you brewed with what you grew yourself.  Today there is usually a space between where the grains are grown and where the beer is brewed.  That is not the case with Screamin’ Hill Brewery.  The brew house sits right on the farm, Owners Brett Bullock and Ryan Cole like to say “From Field To Glass”.  Where ever possible they use their own grown ingredients, whether it’s the grains to make their base malt or the pumpkins, tomatoes or basil used to flavor their beers. It’s grown right there.

Over Beers - Death of the Fox Brewing Company

Breweries in most places were traditionally in industrial sections of town.  When laws changed and they had the opportunity to open a tap room, they were created by carving out a section of the production brewery, putting in some taps, a bar and some stools.  Tap room opened.  For breweries that started after the law changes, the dynamic changed and they built their taprooms as the center piece.  Thought was given to how welcoming the space can be.  How will people feel when they visit.  It can be a place where people can be social with one another and generate a sense of community. That’s the feeling you will get when you visit Death of the Fox.  Plus there’s something different.  The smell of coffee greets you when you walk in.  In addition to being a brewery, Death of the Fox is also a coffee house.

Over Beers - Jughandle Brewing Company

A couple of weeks ago the show was at the Fir Farm’s Hop Harvest.  One of the places getting hops was Jughandle Brewing Company.  We talked about getting together for the release of the beer they were making with the picked hops and that is exactly what we did last Saturday.  Jughandle released Fir Coat, their harvest ale.

Over Beers - Rich Wagner

I knew that there was a rich history of brewing in the Northeast but I had no idea just how rich it was.  During his talk Rich Wagner mentioned that he had published a book, entitled “Philadelphia Beer” going through the history of brewing in Philadelphia. I knew I wanted to read it and I knew I wanted to have him on the podcast.

You can find his book “Philadephia Beer” on Amazon, check out his website pabreweryhistorians.tripod.com.  The event on October 20th has been cancelled.  Check out his website for other events in the future.

Over Beers - Fort Nonsense Brewing Company

There’s the old saying is Blood is thicker than water…but is blood thicker than beer? That’s what I was looking to find out when I visited Fort Nonsense Brewing Company earlier in the summer. FNC is owned and operated by not just two, but three brothers.  Andrew, Thomas and James…the Aslanian Brothers.  They are brewing a variety of classic ales and lagers with their own unique twists and talk about those beers with only a hint of sibling rivalry during the conversation.

Over Beers - Fir Farm's Hop Harvest

A few months ago I met Mickey and Bobby Clark owners of the Fir Farm.  Traditionally they’ve sold Christmas Trees, and they still do, but for the last few years they’ve also been growing hops right here in Central Jersey.  They invited me to their 2018 Hop Harvest in early August.

Over Beers - Demented Brewing Company

Insanely Flavorful Ales is the motto of Demented Brewing Company.  As you will soon hear, Tom Zuber started out seriously home brewing with the goal of creating a yearly rotation of beers with a lot of flavor.  A plan he took with him when he  built his brewery in 2015.

Over Beers - Flagship Brewing Company

With the nature of the brewing business, it’s not uncommon for brewers to move around a good deal.  This is definitely the case for Patrick Morse, the Head Brewer of Staten Island’s Flagship Brewing.  His career has had him crossing the US a couple of times as he worked his way up the brewing ranks.

Over Beers - Atco Brewing Company

I’m always impressed by people who follow their passion.  That can be said for most brewery owners and brewers.  It’s not a business for people who really aren’t in to it. Passion is a term you can really use for the partners at Atco Brewing Company in Atco New Jersey.  These guys still have day jobs and work all hours of the day to get the beer out.

Phil Petracca and Greg Taylor of Source Brewing are spending a great deal of time paying attention to every detail of not just the brewing of the beer but the creation of the space that will become Source Brewing.   We sat down in Phil’s kitchen to have a conversation about those details, Over Beers.

Over Beers - Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival Part 2

Atlantic City Convention Center is the site for the 2018 Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival.  It's a great gathering of beer from all over, and especially New Jersey brewers.  I had the chance to sit down with people from 12 different breweries during the Saturday sessions and have some quick conversations.  Think of this as a special bottle release of Over Beers.  I think it's going to lead to more great conversations to come.  Here's the conversations from sessions 2 and 3 of AC Beer Fest.
