Fractal Brewing Project is one of the new kids on the Huntsville beer scene but their Head Brewer Bradley "Robo" Robison isn't new to the game. Robo previously brewed at Huntsville's Below the Radar and Rocket Republic, and he also served the good 'ol US of A in the United States Marine Corps.
Robo and brewery owner Larry Lowe joined us in the studio this week to open some beers and chat. We talk about their awesome Grisette that uses a revived 18th Century yeast and the origins of this style, originally brewed for miners. We press them on their stance on hard seltzer and why craft breweries are jumping on that bandwagon, and if there's much difference in a seltzer or a beer with cereal or candy in it.
Fractal is in Straight To Ale's original building (Straight to Ale has moved to the Campus 805 development in Huntsville) and how they want to preserve everyone's good memories of the place while offering them a new and exciting experience. We really enjoyed the brews we tried - the aforementioned Grisette, a Saison, an Amber Ale, a Fruited Sour, and a fantastic Baltic Porter. If you're heading to Huntsville stop by the taproom and try your hand at a math problem or two while enjoying some of their tasty brews.
