This episode of Cincy Brewcast saw us finally getting a glimpse at what Alexandria Brewing company will look like. The brewery has been working their butts off to get rolling down in Alexandria, Kentucky and has hit just about every speed bump that is possible when doing so. We spent a lot of time exploring the brewery, hoping to get a good idea of what it will look like when it finally opens its doors early next year. Of course… we also drank a few beers and talked about some of the current “goings on” in the beer community right now.
Along with Andy and Brad from Alexandria Brewing Company, we had Jake Heeb from Hops Springs Farm, so we spent a few minutes talking to him about how he hopes to take his new farm venture and partner up with Alexandria Brewing (as well as other local breweries) to provide plenty of fresh, local ingredients into their process.
We might have also spent way more time than we should have digging into a big of the local “online” beer community and some of the issues that have arisen with that. How do you manage the growing community of craft beer drinkers, and the hostility and issues that can arise from an industry that contains more and more people who are very different from each other? I don’t know if we actually ever answered that question – but we certainly tried to.
