On this episode of the Beer Edge podcast, Andy Crouch speaks with Chris Lohring, the founder of Notch Brewing Company in Salem, Massachusetts. Chris is one of our favorite people to talk to about beer. He’s been in the industry long enough to develop strong opinions but with the knowledge to back them up, all without becoming too jaded. He remains a passionate advocate for beer, including for his beloved lager and session beers. His passion for beer, community, and music is reflected in his fantastic tap room, brewery, and beer garden in downtown Salem. It’s the perfect place to drink beer with friends in the sun, alongside the canal, on a day like today. Instead, he is inside talking with Beer Edge about COVID-19 and how Notch is operating today. Andy starts by asking him the question he asks everyone these days, if only to hear how long they pause or breathe out before responding.
