The previous episode of Forum – Sacramento’s Digital Town Square provided an in-studio warm up for our annual live show from The Art of Beer. Every year, this episode, a fan favorite, provides listeners with insights from local and regional brewers, and others from within the Sacramento brewing – and beer drinking – scene. This year we are again joined by our in-house Balthazar of Beer, Phil Pluckebaum, and the results are no different!
Listen in as we sit down with makers of Ninkasi Brewing Company, and Firestone Walker Brewing Company, as well as Sacramento’s own New Helvetia Brewing Company, and the soon-to-open Oak Park Brewing Company.
And did someone say home brewing? Many of us know, and are proud of, Sacramento’s own Annie Johnson who took home the top prize in the 2013 National Homebrew Competition. Now, local home brewing guru Mike Brennan lets us in on news from the 2014 National Homebrew Competition, where Sacramento will be one of only twelve cities to host opening rounds, putting our fair city once again on the brewing map at the national level.
Also on tap is Rob Archie, the man behind Pangaea Two Brews Cafe, to let us in on what is in store for one of the best known brew dispensaries in the region.
Sacramento is quickly becoming a Mecca for Beer. And nobody knows this better than guest Dan Scott, as he prepares for Sacramento Beer Week 2014. . . listen now to get some insight into why, and do a little tasting the Forum crew along the way.
