This week Bob and I revisited the Smart Brew concept and dug a little bit deeper into it. We also discussed big news from Avon Brewing regarding an impending move to a new location that would expand their spot and allow them to produce more beer. Their parking lot will expand five times its current capacity, and they will be adding an event room. 

In the “Just one more” segment I cracked open a wet hop Head Hunter IPA from Fat Heads Brewing Company. During the interview segment of the show, I sit down with Jon Hovan who is the co-owner of HiHo Brewing Co. We discussed how Jon and his wife fell in love with craft beer and homebrewing during their time in Denver Colorado. We also talked about how they went from both being teachers to developing their brewery into a staple of Cuyahoga Falls. During the segment we sampled their pilsner, IPA, their amazing white stout, and of course their World Beer Cup gold medal winning beer called Touchdown Brown.
