This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

We’re talking with Phantom Horse Brewing!  Skip Welsh joins us in the studio this week to talk about his young (they just turned 1!) brewpub in NW Georgia.  We chat about bringing craft beer to an area that isn’t particularly a craft beer place, paying attention to water chemistry, brewing approachable beers, and beer cocktails.  Plus, Producer Joey drops some hot rhymes.

Next week we’ll talk with Brick Store Pub!  20 years ago three friends decided to open a pub in Decatur.  Today it’s a highly regarded destination for beer geeks from all over the world, garnering the top spot on many “Best Of” lists.  We’ll talk with the owners, past employees, and long time superfans about this iconic gathering place.
