If you aren’t familiar with the LD Carlson Company, they are the manufacturer of Brewer’s Best homebrew recipe kits and equipment and they also supply a large amount of malts to homebrew shops across the nation. Tonight, Brian is here to discuss their Brewer’s Best brands and their malts, including their newer European malts and shop favorites, Avangard and Swaen. We also talk to Brian about what trends he’s seeing in craft beer and homebrewing across the nation.
In this episode, we revisited the craft retail perspective from our local area by having former General Manager of Trinity River Taphouse, Shawn Howell, in the studio with us to talk about what he’s experienced in his years working with craft beer in the Fort Worth area during his time at The Flying Saucer downtown and Trinity River in the 7th street area. Shawn is very familiar with our local craft scene and has plenty of insight to share, so tune in and enjoy!
