The team consists of Evan Rouse, Richard Dubé, Jake Rouse & Greg Rouse. Looking to open this year Braxton Brewing is quickly building a following. Built on the foundation of Evan’s experience as a home brewer and time brewing at the Haufbrau house in Newport, Braxton Brewing Co. will be looking to raise some pints near you soon. Find a beer push, play and let the sound infiltrate your ears.
Paul Benner of the Cleveland Brew shop is back for his second interview on The Ohio Beercast. This time he has come to talk about his new venture the Platform Beer Co. (PBC), slated to open in June of 2014. PBC looks to become a leader in the brewing industry by creating great beer and providing a foundation for budding brewer’s looking at the next step. With fresh ideas, a solid team of brewers and workers the Platform Beer Co. will quickly become a beer lovers destination.
It’s episode 56 and Mark is back on the beercast from spring break. And yes that is him in that video you saw on that questionable website. The duo of Mark and Darrell jump back into the beer world as much is happening good and bad. While beer politics dominates the show, with talks of entertainment streets, trademark fun & feed regulations, we do spice it up with news about beer in Ohio ballparks. We do dip our toes into the beer and marijuana debate as it takes a turn into the world of mudslinging. But it’s all good and more fun than you can shake a stick at. So grab your beer today and jump in with both feet we are invading your ears with both guns blazing.
So who is Rick Blankemeier and why is he so afraid of Godzilla? Well I can’t give you an answer to the second part, but for the first half Rick is half of Team Spröcket. Rick and his partner Robbie Chandler both work for Stone Brewing Co and are the winners of the Stone Spotlight Series. A competition that pitted teams of Stone Brewing Co employees in a brewing competition where the prize was national distribution of the winning beer to the 41 states Stone Brewing Company currently delivers their beer.
The 54th episode of The Ohio Beercast has Darrell roping Chris of Queen City Fresh into joining him for the usual beer update episode. Again we find beer dancing in the political arena with trickles of news coming out about the new ABV proposal, a sin tax rebellion taking place in Cuyahoga County and Kasich touting himself as a pro beer politician. We also drop some knowledge bombs and thoughts on the areas of defining craft beer, new FDA standards around the corner and of course births, expansions and anniversaries. Get that beer, find that seat, grab a hold and hang on tight because the Ohio Beercast is here to rattle your brain.
