It’s Super Bowl week in America and the attention of the sports world has turned to Tampa, Florida where the hometown team, the Buccaneers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs. For breweries the annual big game has become a chance for some city-to-city rivalries that play out in collaboration beers, tap takeovers, and more, with the brewery from the winning city often getting the better end of the deal, but in reality there are no losers.
This show is in two segments. The first features Khristopher Johnson of Green Bench Brewing in Florida and Nick Mater of Alma Mader Brewery in Missouri. They talk about their bets, their cities, and how they are looking to further their beer making through education.
Our second segment features Karlton Graham of KC Bier Co. in Missouri and Sean Sasscer of Cigar City Brewery talking about brewing outside of their comfort zones, what it’s like brewing in cities that want to celebrate but are limited to the pandemic, and post-COVID-19 plans.
