We welcome local brewery Almanac to The Session, finally! These guys have been turning out some great beers since 2010, and they show no signs of stopping. Jesse Friedman, who is one of the co-founders, and Phil The Barrel Guy made the journey – along with several tasty beers – to chat with us about their philosophy on making beer and how to be creative in a growing market.
“Farm to Barrel” is their tagline, and Jesse is a passionate believer in paring beers with food, so it’s easy to see why the beers are the way they are – well balanced, complex, and damn good! We talk about their barrel program for a bit, as well as how they deal with Brett strains and their fruit additions, two things they are known for.
It was a great show and the guys really brought it strong!
