Marika Josephson Scratch Brewing Company - Episode 31

Marika Josephson



In thinking about food that comes from the ground and real bread that takes time, plus, drinking a lot of beer, John Holl thought of Scratch Brewing in Ava, Illinois. Feeling the down home nature of the COVID-19 related quarantine, Holl called up Marika Josephson, one of the founders of Scratch, to talk about foraging, brewing with local ingredients, and reviving some long-forgotten processes to make some of the more interesting beers in America today.
