Episode 269: The Guys Interview Flying Dream Brewing
Jacob and Eddie headed to Marlboro, MA to interview the founder of Flying Dreams Brewing. Interview: So on your website’s section “our story” it's basically just Dave Richardsons story…So what are your stories? Says here that Dave has won 35 awards. Does the website get updated every time a new award is won? Can you name all 35 awards? What’s the story behind the name? 2 locations: Worcester and Marlborough, MA. Looks like beer is brewed in Worcester and the taproom in Marboro. What’s the story with the two locations? *potential follow-up: Wormtown used to brew at the Worcester location How did the relationship with Wormtown Brewing begin? Are there any collabs with Wormtown? How have you guys dealt with the new normals amidst this pandemic? What’s your thoughts on the hard seltzer trend? Do you remember drinking your first craft beer? What was the first beer you brewed? What’s your favorite style of beer? What beer do you enjoy brewing the most? *If there was a beer you could brew with no regards to cost, production, or sales, what would it be and why? On collaborations, which brewery was the most fun to brew with? What beer was it? I may be retarded, but how do you pronounce “SYZYGY”? Why? Any shout out to any upcoming future brews It’s been over a year since the news section has been updated? What gives? Nothing going on over here? Yes, this interview is mostly based off your website and whatever google searches we pulled up.

When you sign up for anything online, put the website’s name as your middle name. That way when you receive spam/advert emails, you will know who sold your info. Bad Yelp Review - Redemption: Steven B. - Boston, MA (Worcester location) A very small, cozy brewery located next to a restaurant. I recommend the tasting as you will get to keep your sample glass. The samples you get to try will vary from day to day depending on which beers are on tap. Concession IPA- Bitter and hoppy. Unfortunately, I did not find this IPA terribly appealing. Double bock--Caramel and whiskey. Like a barley wine. Nice smooth finish. This was the highlight of the tasting. Cafe session stout--thinner consistency than most stouts. Distinct Coffee complexity. Reminds me of cold brew. It's a refreshing stout. Double Mando DIPA--Strong hoppy flavor with a nice bitterness that lingers in the tongue. Pine note. Thin consistency. Decent DIPA. Park Ave porter--a little malty but not much. But, I found the flavor dull and watery. Satisfactory, but not much going on here. Like most breweries, the brews can be hit or miss. Double Bock alone is worth a visit. Flying Dreams gets a recommendation. came here by accident, meant to go to the Worcester location. I personally was on the hunt for their sour beers but none were on tap so I asked for water while my boyfriend got drinks. There were 4 of us in total here and the girl never came back with my water or to check in on my boyfriend. He finally put his empty glass very obviously forward so he could get another beer and she came. I asked for water again and never got it. I get its a brewery and perhaps I annoyed her by not drinking l, but blatantly ignoring 50% of your customers sucks. it's also in an odd space with lawyers offices.

Episode 268: The Guys enjoy some @hillfarmstead and a collab with @vitaminseabrew and @jwakefieldbeer
Episode 268: The Guys enjoy some @hillfarmstead and a collab with @vitaminseabrew and @jwakefieldbeer LPT from Reddit: When hired for a new job, copy the list of responsibilities they provide you and save it in a folder with your resume. This will make it easier to complete an application the next time you look for a job when the employer asks what your last job duties were. Don’t be afraid to splurge a little bit on a few luxury items from the grocery store that may dissuade you from eating out, and act as a reward for saving money and (probably) eating healthier. (The cost of a meal purchased at the grocery store is on average far cheaper than a similar meal via fast food, takeout, or (especially) delivery. If you can afford it, splurging a little bit on a good steak, or specialty produce at the grocery store may prevent you from eating out as often, so you’ll save money and experience higher quality food compared with a similarly priced meal from a restaurant.) Beer news: Anheuser-Busch Wins the Regulatory Go-Ahead to Acquire Craft Brew Alliance The Department of Justice gave its approval on Friday, Sept. 18 for Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) to move ahead with its acquisition of Craft Brew Alliance (NASDAQ:BREW) -- or what Craft Brew calls an "expanded partnership." The deal been in limbo since February, when an antitrust examination began, but has now cleared a major hurdle on the way to closing. The approval is contingent on the two parties' agreement to sell the Hawaiian operations of Kona Brewing to PV Brewing Partners, LLC. Craft Brew Alliance and Anheuser-Busch suggested the divestiture back on June 10 as a way to "expedite the regulatory review process and alleviate potential regulatory concerns." Anheuser-Busch InBev and Craft Brew Alliance will grant PV Brewing Partners a perpetual license to brew and market Kona beer in Hawaii, along with selling it a new brewery with a capacity of 100,000 barrels and other Kona facilities in the state. Anheuser-Busch has owned a 31% stake in Craft Brew since 2016, but the deal will give it 100% ownership, paying $16.50 per share to Craft Brew's shareholders at closing. CBA's shares ended Friday trading up 6% on the news. Anheuser-Busch's Brewers Collective president Marcelo Michaelis said the beverage giant expects the combination "to help fuel the growth of the craft beer category" in the "competitive and dynamic" American beer market.
