Episode 50 – Laurie Porter of Smog City Brewing

Oh man, today’s episode comes to you with a bit of backstory!

I interviewed Laurie two weeks ago (!!) and learned afterwards that my recording program didn’t, uh, record it. And since Laurie has a lot on her plate these days, it took a while to reschedule and record. It happened and then I learned that my recording program didn’t record again (I know, I know, I am looking for a new option), but I did have my phone with me, so here we are.

I lament you can’t listen to the first five minutes, but I hope the rest of our conversation will make up for that. It’s decent audio, if a little echoey. Laurie Porter is one of the owners of Smog City Brewing, and frankly, I am just glad she’s on the show!

Check out their revamped website, their really cool label art, and if you have been there, tell me what drank! Finally, say hi on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Call the Harpy Hour Hotline: 1-833-85-HARPY. Review and rate the show, if you’re so inclined.

Mini-episode for March 2nd: In like a lamb and out like a lion

Let’s reverse the usual March axiom: In like a lion, out like a lamb.

Today you get lamb-like (heh) me giving you some background about why there hasn’t been any episodes for two Fridays, as well as updating you on what is going on for the next two months. The lion part will be a month of new episodes with rad guests, and maybe a new unrelated micro-podcast about reading about being your best self…and hoping your future best self will cooperate. It always comes back to beer, though.

The 50 States Beer Project heads to Colorado next. Know of someone to interview there? Call the Harpy Hour Hotline: 1-833-85-HARPY.

Guys, rate, review, and recommend the show as much as possible. It’s helpful for potential guests as well as charting to get more ears.  I absolutely appreciate it like heck. It may well lead to me visiting your town!

I launched my beer consulting/educating business here in Kingston. Check out my new website for it.

Follow the show on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! See you next week for a new episode (with a guest, I swear)!
