Episode 47 – Regan Long of Local Brewing Company

This week on Harpy Hour I talk with Regan Long of Local Brewing Company based in San Francisco.

Regan has quite an impressive CV for a brewmaster–degrees in Oceanography and Physics!–but her passion for making the best beer for your pleasure won out over all the other cool stuff she knows. Go have a listen and plan your trip to head to SF for their Beer Week. Believe me, I am tempted to do that!

Episode 46 – Chalonda White aka AfroBeerChick

Sometimes I get so myopic in talking with women who work in breweries that I forget the media side of beer! (Mea culpa.)

But not today, my friends. This episode highlights one of the coolest beer bloggers/social media mavens out there. I’m talking about Chalonda White, the titular AfroBeerChick. Not only is her blog one of the most stylish I’ve ever seen, it’s also engaging and honest.

I’m so glad she’s the guest this week. I need to prioritize Chicago on my beer travels list. Especially so I get out to 18th Street Brewery, makers of her desert island beer. Follow her everywhere online, folks.

Episode 45 – Little Beasts Brewing Company

And here we are in the second week of a New Year!

First of all, thanks for being patient while I sorted out behind the scenes tech stuff here at the podcast.  A problem occurred with our hosting so I spent Christmas figuring it out. But huzzah, it is done!

This also caused me to delay a great interview that I bring to you now. Erin Broadfoot is one half of the partnership that forms Little Beasts Brewing Company. They brew some pretty tasty beers;  I was lucky to talk with Erin before Christmas. I can’t wait for you to hear it!

Another request that if you could rate and review the show on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, and Google Play., I would appreciate it. Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, especially if you like adorable cat pics (who doesn’t?).  Say hi by calling the Harpy Hour Hotline at 1-833-854-2779, or 1-833-85-HARPY. It’s toll free in the US and Canada!

California is the place to be next week so see you then!

Episode 44 – Crooked City Cider

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday time and drank some gorgeous beers. (Psst…you can tell me about them if you can 1-833-85-HARPY. Just sayin’.)

Because this is the first episode of 2018, I’m stepping outside of my adult beverage comfort zone and talking cider with Dana Bushouse of Crooked City Cider. Located in Oakland, California, Crooked City aims to make ciders that will blow you out of the water with their exquisite taste and attention to detail. And if you go to their website and read their cider list, I guarantee you will be very very thirsty.

What are some of your favourite ciders? What are some cideries you love where you are? Same as above, call and let me know!

In conclusion, go have a listen. Heck, if you’ve visited Crooked City, I can’t wait to hear what you drank. Seems like maybe I should make 2018 the year I explore cider!

Finally, thanks to everyone who made 2017 a great year for the podcast. You are all wonderful.

Follow the show on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Most of all, leave a review and rating if inclined.  So I hope you’ll keep listening and see you next Friday!
