Episode 121 – Camden Watts & Shane Johnston from the NC Craft Beer Documentary “Brewconomy”
We are going Hollywood this week…with beer! It’s a very special episode with filmmakers Camden Watts and Shane Johnston, creators of an all-new documentary about the NC craft beer business, Brewconomy! They breakdown the process of making the film all while trying some NC beers with us. The state of NC craft beer business. This week it’s Foothills Oktoberfest, Haw River’s Regent’s Rye Trappist Tripel, and Lynnwood Brewing’s Hubris Imperial IPA!
It’s not exactly a documentary, but we have news! This week we begin with Wired who tell us that brewers are on a quest to breed a better hop, followed by War on the Rocks asking what craft beer revolution? and then the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reveals the beer of champions. Next up is Fortune’s list of 6 great apps for craft beer lovers, The LA Times peers into the future with robots that serve beer and we conclude with NBC and the strange case of the 1,200 stolen bottle caps!
Last week for our #caskquiz we asked “how many breweries are in your state?” and this week we want to hear your suggestions for the name of Jenn’s new bar!
