With Brendan Hartranft and Sarah Fuller at Local 44
Plus Jason Stewart from Grainfather & Ethan Tripp from Fermentery Form
West Philly bound for this episode, where we sat down at the bottle shop at Local 44 Beer Bar with owner Brendan Hartranft and manager Sarah Fuller. Also joining us were Jason Stewart, representative for The Grainfather all grain homebrewing systems and Ethan Tripp, founder of the new Fermentery Form – a new farmhouse style brewery in the West Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Dan reported on the Brewers Association’s new independent beer seal and a (obviously misguided) “beer for women” from the Czech Republic. We played a Belgian Beer edition of Libation or Fabrication in Happy fun Time and sampled an array of Belgian beers in honor of Belgian Beer Week and some offerings from Fermentery Form.
