This week Bob and I talk about the upcoming Ashland Alefest which takes place on 6/18. We also discuss the Ohio breweries that brought home wins at this year World Beer Cup. Thirteen Ohio Breweries brought home 15 medals. We also discuss BrewDog owner James Watt giving up 5% of his stake in the company to employees.
In the second half of the show I traveled to Willoughby, Ohio to talk to Paola Valbuena and Jon Hill from Pulpo Beer Company. Pulpo is the first Latin owned brewery in the state of Ohio. They bring a taste of Latin America to all of their beers on tap. During the interview we talked about their expansion to Crocker Park where they will open a tap room that features 24 different beers ready to serve.
