You don’t have to be local to Mass to enjoy

I don’t live in the Mass area but found Brew Roots podcast through the Rockport Brewing episode. Since then I have subscribed and am slowly (as in one after another) listening to your backlog. Even though I’m in KY I do have ties to Mass so it’s fun to hear about the beer scene going on up there. This podcast and hearing about the backstories of the local brewing companies has encouraged me to FINALLY try my home brew kit that I got two years ago. Looking forward to more episodes!

Fun listen and great interviews

I enjoy the pod have listened to 10+ episodes. Interesting insights and great exposure for locals breweries. I Have been excited about all the central mass breweries opening and now getting learn more about the back stories is even better.

I also rarely go on a trip and not look for a brewery to hit up so it’s great to find new places and know the people behind them.

I also was completely sucked in by the Gilded skull episode and was able to get some beer from their inaugural batch and it was fantastic. I look forward to more to come!

Mass best beer scene reaction

In all honesty it’s a three way tie between Mass, Vermont and Maine. I’ve lived in Western Mass for five years coming from N.C. and I’m blown away by the high quality beers in these three New England states. But I’m new to the pod and it’s great. Lastly The Mass Brew Bros kill it at promoting Mass beer! Great collab no pun intended.
