Episode 16: The Art of Beer Invitational Beer Festival

February 9, 2016

Host Ben Rice travels to the Art of Beer Invitational Craft Beer Festival in Sacramento and sits down with, in exact order: Greg Coll of Ales for Autism; Michael Barker of Sactown Union Brewing & Shaun O'Sullivan of 21st Amendment Brewing; Art of Beer event director Jen Irwin; Dan & Steven Murphy of 12 Rounds Brewing; and Art of Beer founding director Rawi Nanakul and Odell Brewing's Tony Rau. Conversations run the gamut from brewing basics to regulations in and out of California, to starting and running your own non-profit charity to starting and running your own beer festival, to kickboxing movies and Fulbright scholars (yes, those two ARE related), to zombie-fighting dream teams, to cases of mistaken identity and host Ben Rice being a disrespectful jerk, to yeast glorious yeast, and back again. I hope you enjoy this amalgam of 5, count em, 5, separate sit downs over the course of 3 hours while we all get progressively drunker (host's note: if I start sounding belligerent, it's only my joy being louder). Enjoy!
