craft brewing is back in Baltimore, thanks to Jon Zerivitz, Kevin Blodger + Adam Benesch, founders of Woodberry's Union Craft Brewing. With the motto of "Beer Unites," Union is aiming to provide Baltimore with a neighborhood brewery that bolsters community togetherness over a delicious tap list. We met with Jon after our Baltimore pop-up preview, held in the brewery's parking lot, to discuss the history of Baltimore brewing, where it's headed + the state of Charm City overall.
something sustainable is brewing in Ivy City… serving as DC's first + only 100% solar powered brewery, Atlas Brew Works is creating delicious craft beer while trying to set a greener standard for breweries nationwide. We met with Atlas' Founder, Justin Cox, to learn more about their home-brew history + sustainability goals, as well as what food pairs best with each offering.
hg: tell us a little bit about yourself + your background. Was beer always a part your “five-year plan?”
New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewing Co. has been a part of the craft beer movement since before there was a craft beer movement. We sat down + enjoyed a nice cold beer with founder, Gene Muller, to learn more about how his brewery got it’s start online + how sustainable practices make for a greener future + superior suds.
hg: what were you doing prior to founding Flying Fish?
Philadelphia's hometown brewery, Yards, began as many great ideas do — in a dorm room + amongst friends. Since then it has become the staple beer in every Philly-area bar. We met with Yards' Founder, Owner + Head Brewer, Tom Kehoe, to talk all things brewed and sudsy (including one of our new stir-fry sauces, Yards Brawler au jus) as well as how the company plans to "Brew Unto Others" to give even more to the Philadelphia community.
