Wooden Robot's robot's name is Albert Beerstein. That's what the people voted for and it stuck. But we hear his friend's call him Woody Barrelson.
Co-founder and CEO Josh Patton joins us this week to talk about his urban farmhouse brewery. Their brewing is inspired by Belgian tradition while also leaning on the innovation and technology of American brewers. They produce a variety of wild, funky, fruity, and hoppy beers and aren't concerned with being the biggest kid on the block.
We talk about what it means to be an urban farmhouse brewery, using local and foraged ingredients, balancing taking care of yourself with taking care of your retail partners, and the pros and cons of self-distribution.
We also discuss the results of our Twitter poll on hard seltzers and share some stats on the rising popularity. We even sample a few, for science.
NEXT WEEK: Tune in for our conversation with Austin's NXNW Brewing Co.
