About This Show
Stop & Taste Conversations by New Holland Brewing
The Podcast with a two drink minimum.
The world of food and drink is made up of remarkably interesting people. In fact, after more than twenty years of working and traveling in the business, it’s the incredible people I’ve met from all walks of life that have left the biggest impression on me. I believe people are the most interesting and valuable part of the entire craft renaissance. New Holland’s “Stop and Taste Conversations” podcast, is our way of shedding some light on these colorful characters. We’ll shoot the bull over a couple of drinks and share some stories with the folks we’re lucky enough to know and call friends.

6 days ago
Our first ever live-podcast happened during the Harvest Gathering 2016 at Earthwork Farm in Lake City, Michigan. A three day celebration of music and community, the Harvest Gathering is like nothing else. Earthwork is home of the Bernard family farm as well as the Earthwork Music Collective. My first guest on Friday was May Erlewine Bernard. She is a remarkable musician and sweetheart to boot. We met in “Maddie’s Circle”, which hosted workshops throughout the weekend. It was a tranquil scene on log benches with warm conversation and kind souls.

May plays guitar, fiddle, piano and a few other instruments, but mostly she sings. Her songs are treasured by people of all faiths and politics. May has played music not only all across America but also for people all over the world. What is perhaps most remarkable is May's songwriting ability. Although she is a wonderful singer and her voice is instantly recognizable, it is the songs that she writes that are really turning heads. May's songs are sung (and recorded) by other artists, both great and small. The sounds and influences you'll hear in her music range from good old fashioned folk and country swing to soul singers, rock and music from all over the wide world. It's all bundled together with stories and melodies to take you on a journey of the heart. May is a member of the Earthwork Music Collective, a group of independent artists who share resources and talents to raise both community and self-awareness, along with facilitating and enc
