We were lucky to have three awesome guests. First, the evil genius (not really evil, but it sounds good) behind Burnt Hickory Brewery, Scott Hedeen, joined us in studio. We uncapped plenty of whales from BHB, thanks to Scott (and Brian Hewitt's) stash.
Scott talked about the challenges of operating a small brewery under current Georgia laws, the special ambiance of the tap room (including one crazy Yelp review), and the ideas behind their many creative variants. We also talked about Georgia Beer Day, the growth of craft beer (and spirits) in Kennesaw, as well as the fist BHB Town Hall meeting this week. Finally, Tim tests Scott on music and beer pairings. You'll find out what the best beer is for listening to Taylor Swift, natch.
Also joining us was Morgan and Lisa Maclellan, the owners of Your Pie Perimeter. Not only are they one of our great sponsors, they are renowned among the Your Pie community when it comes to their craft beer program. We talk shop, and learn more about the importance of craft beer on their bottom line.
A special shout out to our newest sponsor, CRL CONTRACTING. Working on opening a brewery? CRL is the most experienced contractors when it comes to building breweries and tap rooms. They've built for Orpheus, Second Self and Scofflaw. Thanks for your support!
