Big Beach Brewing
Big Beach Brewing's growler in its natural element - the outdoors.

Spring is in the air, and we're thinking about the great outdoors.

So what better way to celebrate the mild weather with a coastal brewery?

Big Beach Brewing Company from Gulf Shores, Alabama, joined us for this episode. We talked to head brewer Rod Murray and co-owner Jim Schamburger about their craft beer journey, the differences in brewing beer for the beach crowd, and their rapid growth over the year.

We also had Brandon King in studio. He's one of the minds behind two great craft beer destinations - The Stout Brothers / Smyrna Beer Market and The Nest restaurant in Kennesaw. We talked beer, barbecue...and their anniversary party that will feature such things as smoked alligator.

Truck and Tap Beers of the Week:

  • Big Beach Brewing Rod’s Reel Cream Ale
