    Collision Bend Brewery: Inspired to Create by their Customers

    Collision Bend Brewery: Inspired to Create by their Customers

    Collision Bend Brewing Company is setting new standards in modern microbreweries. With an unrivaled fresh, natural menu and beers destined for national awards, the brewery is quickly becoming a Cleveland landmark on the Cuyahoga River. Collision Bend's beers are handcrafted by Luke Purcell, one of Ohio's top brewmasters. We visit Luke at the brewery to talk about his journey and inspiration. We drink beers, try some tasty tacos and talk about Luke's journey from Great Lakes to Collision Bend. 
    Collision Bend is where expertly crafted beer and food collide. 
    Graham Russell, the founder of the phenomenon of @cookingwithcarrrl on Instagram and Tik Tok, joins us as a special co-host.

    Eric and David sit down with Sonya Patel from PUR Spices to hear about her unique path to Central Kitchen through the Craft Food Classroom.  
    As a food lover and mom of food allergy children, Sonya was sick and tired of spending hours scrutinizing food labels, wondering what was in my spices and sauces. All She wanted was to find fresh, healthy, and tasty cooking ingredients that didn't have a running list of additives, preservatives, fillers, and top allergens. And that's why she created PUR Spices Limited.
    PUR Spices is a company that operates with the philosophy of using only wholesome ingredients to create exceptional experiences enhancing everyday foods. We make high-quality sauces and spices of international flavor.
    "I've been obsessed with food my whole life." ~Sonya Patel
