Episode 21: Love is in the Beer

Greg-200With Greg Orth from Craft Tastings, LLC

For this Valentine episode we were joined by Greg Orth, who introduced us to the magically taste-gasmic world of chocolate and beer pairing. Greg founded Craft Tastings, which specializes in hosting beer and chocolate pairing events, after years of enjoying and homebrewing great beers and nearly a decade and a half of working at Hershey’s Chocolate.
