On this all-new episode of Cincy Brewcast, we are joined by Scott LaFollette, the mastermind behind one of the most innovative and popular Cincy Craft breweries, Blank Slate. We taste Blank Slate's "Ryesing Up" rye saison and "Flourish", his Agave-Lime Alt collaboration with Orchid's at the Palm Court restaurant. He also gives us his "tell it like it is" take on the Cincinnati craft brewing scene, including the hurdles he had to jump to get Blank Slate off the ground, and the unique problems brought about by the craft beer "boom". We also announce a winner in our "Question of the Week" contest of naming Tina's Hopwater infused beer cocktail from last week, we discuss the Cincy Craft news in "This Week in Beer" and so much more, all on this week's edition of Cincy Brewcast; "The Voice of Cincy Craft"!
Cincy Brewcast drinks water this week. Wait, What!? But this is no ordinary water--this is Hopwater, the new craft soft-drink sensation developed by Cincy based 48th Parallel. Hopwater has burst onto the regional craft beverage scene with its unique mix of all-natural ingredients, featuring Zeus hops tincture, giving Original Hopwater its distinctive, hop-forward flavor. They also add ginger, lime and grapefruit flavors to their line-up, and we try them all, by themselves, and in beer cocktails such as Tina's blackberry mixture (dubbed by Hopwater's Brandon Dawson "3 ounces of Shade") featuring Hopwater and Madtree's "Shade" blackberry gose, "The Gnarly Natty", featuring Hopwater Original, Little Kings(!) and Crown Royal and Mike's "Hoppy Knob" with Hopwater Ginger, Knob Creek bourbon and lime. We also taste the afore-mentioned Madtree Shade, Bad Tom Smith/Paradise Brewing's All-American IPA and Millersburg Brewing's French Ridge IPA--all on this edition of Cincy Brewcast.
It's a taste sensation as CincyBrewcast welcomes "Chef Antonio" from Cincy Beer Brats to our first "Food and Beer" edition! You have seen (and probably tasted) Antonio's delicious wares at their "Beer 'n' Brat" events at some of the Cincy Craft taprooms--the next one takes place July 24 at Braxton Brewing! Chef tells us about what goes in to making a beer brat, some new and exciting products they are coming up with (including Breakfast Links) and how he went from the media business to the "brat biz". We also drink some casual beers from Cellar Dweller, West 6th, and Madtree and we finish our interview with Dave Volkman of Ohio Valley Hops ahead of their OHGG Open House, taking place at Ohio Valley Hops in Maineville on July 25. Plus Fermented Reality "B Cups", an all new Question of the Week (with a sweet prize) and much more on this all-new CincyBrewcast!
Join Mike and Tina Cisneros as they make the scenic drive from the CincyBrewcast Studios, along Rt. 32 to Athens, Ohio, the home of Ohio University and of Ohio Brew Week 2015. Mike and Tina chat with Weston Lombard, Executive Director of the 10th Annual Ohio Brew Week and Board Member Jody Grinert. Hear how the festival went from its organizers going around Ohio in a U-Haul truck collecting kegs from brewers, to the state's touchstone event for both craft brewers and craft beer lovers. The event takes place from July 10-18 and features 45 brewers (including most of Cincy's craft favorites), along with a collection of Ohio ciders, meads, spirits, and wines. Local food and entertainment round out what is always a stellar event. Also on this all-new CincyBrewcast, The Gnarly Gnome joins up for some tasting and commentary as we pull some growlers "From the Beer Fridge", we unveil a new Question of the Week in "Asked and Answered" and run down what will prove to be a busy next few weeks on CincyBrewcast, "The Voice of Cincy Craft".
