Simply Peter on Fuhmentaboudit!

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Most of the people I know are not big beer geeks or avid homebrewers, so it’s not every day I get to sit down and discuss my beer at length.  But, Monday night Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme invited me on their weekly radio show, Fuhmentaboudit!, to do just that!  It was so much fun talking about my bacon beer, smoked malts, building my jockey box and so much more.  That 30 minutes felt like 5 minutes, I wish we had more time to talk more.  Check out the show on Heritage Radio Network,!


NHC2013 retrospective

Friday, July 19th, 2013

nhc club nightA couple weeks ago I went to my first Nation Homebrewers Conference (NHC) and it was probably one of the best beer events I’ve been to in a long time. So what took me so long to write about it? I figured if waited a bit I would really only remember the real highlights and lowlights. Being from Jersey, I was thrilled that this years NHC would be just a quick car ride down the turnpike; Philly is such a great beer town. Besides it was a great excuse to get over to Monks to have some Cantillon Classic Gueuze and Mussels.
Here’s are my highlights from NHC2013
