We’re very excited that our On the Road with Beer Sessions Radio™ episodes (two of which have already aired) are reaching major milestones. Our first episode (episode 335 – listen here) which featured “The New Primitives” of the Hudson Valley Region, has been downloaded more than 55,000 times in six weeks, making it the most downloaded episode of Beer Sessions Radio™ ever! Places we visited:
- From the Ground Brewery, Red Hook, NY
- Hudson Valley Malt, Germantown, NY
- Plan Bee Farm Brewery, Poughkeepsie, NY
- Suarez Family Brewery, Livingston, NY
And now our second episode, “Edge of the Wild,” is trending on iTunes. This latest episode ranking 5th in food-related podcasts as of time of writing found us in the Catskills region of New York State, where we hang out with Beer Sessions Radio™ favorite Andy Brennan of Aaron Burr Cidery and he reflects on the text written about apples in the 1800s that give him inspiration. Listen in and meet Andy along with a former racetrack veterinarian who uses his chemistry background to distill unique buckwheat liquor and whole wheat vodka, a brewery owner who was part of saving New York City’s water through anti-fracking advocacy, and one of the first (legal) absinthe producers in the United States.
Thank you for being a huge part of this successful series. Our third episode airs soon!
