Pubcast 349 / Virtual Happy Hour - Liquid Love Brewing
Aug 8th, 2020 by britandyankee
As we travel through the phases of this Covid-19 world, so we settle in on a new title for our content. Our podcast is a ‘pubcast’ as we record from The Brit & Yankee Pub studios, but we are now offering a video version, courtesy of Zoom, which we like to call our ‘Virtual Happy Hour’...yeah, not that original, but that’s what we are aiming for. Grab your favorite brew, and settle in after a hard day’s work, for a Happy Hour with us here at the pub!
This week, we are offering two versions of our program, audio and video, so you can listen OR watch, however the fancy takes you.
Liquid Love Brewing has been causing a buzz in the Chicago craft beer market, producing sold-out brews, and jumping in to the scene during strange times when you might think it would be wiser to hold off. Production brewing initially, we are pleased to say they are finally settling in to a permanent home which will include a taproom. In this episode, we get an exclusive interview with three chums who decided they could produce great beers that the market wanted to buy. Witness sales of their fruited sour, Sad Thug, which they wanted to mimic a granola sundae, and has sold out on the first run and has people clamoring for more.
The Brit, Phil Clark, and co-host and brewer at Hopvine Brewing, Ken McMullen, jumped on a Zoom call with Jon, Matt, and Joe, the three main partners/brewers in this venture, to find out all about Liquid Love. We had such a good chat and enjoyed sampling their brews, that the whole thing ran longer than other episodes, so we decided to publish and be damned!
