Greg & I catch up on the the10 year anniversary and how one goes about curating all the incredibly unique offerings that one can really only find at this festival. Greg brought with him John and Bonnie Branding, Founders of the really fabulous Wheatland Spring Farm Brewery (Waterford VA), and the no less fabulous Dino Funari the Founder of Vitamin Sea Brewery. Together we chatted about the beer process, the current artisanal beer landscape, and what makes Snalleygaster so special. That’s Industry Night with Nycci Nellis, Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. on RealFunDC.
