Barley & Me

Episode 28: Brian Palmer of Claimstake Brewing & Sacramento Beer Enthusiasts Founders Russell Kay and Steve Hayer

August 2, 2016

Host Ben Rice visits Claimstake Brewing in Rancho Cordova, to talk with owner/brewer Brian Palmer, as well as founders of the Sacramento Beer Enthusiasts Facebook Group, Russell Kay and Steve Hayer. If there's one thing this episode has, it's a bunch of wonderful people sauced to the gills talking things they love. If there's two things this episode has, it's that and layers (layers). We discuss the road from home brewer to micro brewer, as well as what is needed to start your own brewery, and the items you foresaw and couldn't have seen coming. Plus Brian announces some big things. Ben describes his first home brewing experience and never, ever lives it down. It's chock full of information, callbacks, name calling, parenting tips, and experimental beer style suggestions. I hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording. Enjoy!
