Episode 329 – Travis Fritts from Old Nation Brewing!
Jenn fired up the DeLorean and headed to Michigan this week to chat and drink with Travis Fritts, the owner and brewer at Old Nation Brewing in Williamston! Travis shares the story of Old Nation, talks the latest brews, and then tries some great beers: M-43 New England IPA, Boss Tweed DIPA, and Brut IPA!
A cool collaboration of a different sort leads the news from Food & Wine in that Dogfish Head has turned SeaQuench into a runners’ shoe with Merrell! Next up Craft Brewing Business (thanks Steve!) showcases sweet-looking beer serving tanks that help craft breweries ditch kegs to increase efficiency, safety, speed and freshness, followed by The San Francisco Examiner showing us beer politics and random brew questions. Then it’s Bloomberg reporting that South Koreans appear to have lost their taste for Japanese beer, and we close out the week with KSTU (Fox13 Salt Lake City) warning that beer is going to start disappearing (temporarily) from Utah store shelves!
Due to the nature of time travel, we are carrying over last week’s #caskquiz asking “how long do you think the seltzer craze will last? Will it flame out like root beer did? Have monster growth for a few years then retain solid market share? Start slowing next year then diminishing over time?”
