This week I sat down with Tom Gray from Rocky River Brewing Company. Tom has a quite the brewing history, and he shared stories of his past adventures that included some stops at some amazing breweries along the way. Rocky River Brewing has been around since 1998 and during that time they have only had three brewers. We drank some fantastic beer during the visit, and the plan was to eat some of the great food at RRBC, but the weather had something else to say about that. Halfway through the interview a windstorm knocked out power at the brewery, which dashed my lunch plans. Thankfully my computer powered my soundboard, and we were able to finish the interview. During the interview we drank some fantastic beers including: 

Pirate Light– Kolsch 5.2% 

Hazy Bones – NEIPA: 8% 

Subchaser – Hefeweizen 4.3% 

Strangeways – IPA 6.0%
