    Manatawny Still Works - Max Pfeffer

    Manatawny Still Works - Max Pfeffer

    This episode features Max Pfeffer of Manatawny Still Works.

    Max graduated Penn State University with a degree in chemical engineering.  He began home brewing when he was in college.  This led to him discovering the UC Davis Master Brewing program.  His education and experience led him to a stint with Victory Brewing Company and then to Sly Fox Brewery.  One day, Owner John Giannapoulas, called Max into his office.  He approached Max about opening a distillery.  Max knew beer but not distilled spirits.  That was over 8 years ago.  Today, not only does Max know distilling, he excels at it on a high level.  He and his team are producing whiskeys that are incredible.  What is coming out of the barrels now are spirits full of character, flavor and complexity.  This is a must visit for craft spirit lovers.  When you do you will become a fan for life.

    Christmas City Spirits - Michael "Woody" Dombrosky

    Christmas City Spirits - Michael "Woody" Dombrosky

    This episode features Michael Dombrosky of Christmas City Spirits.

    It all began, when a group of 4 coworkers who were rugby players, got together to share their love of the history of Bethlehem, PA.  They formed the restaurant at Tavern at the Sun Inn.  The next step was to bring the spirits into the tavern.  Woody's family has a long history of distilling in the coal regions of Pennsylvania.  His great grandmother would create Laudanum and make house calls to those with a variety of ailments.  His family has a storied past of making Rye Whiskey.  The owners crossed paths with Woody and they brought him on to distill their incredible spirits and unique recipes.  We learned so much sitting down with Woody and we had a great time enjoying his craft creations.

HouseofDudley ,

Mount Vernon distillery

I stumbled upon this podcast being a huge fan of the Mount Vernon Distillery. I was very thoroughly entertained with the questions asked by the host. I’m not even that much of a spirits enthusiast but this episode really stood apart with its history lessons as well. Looking forward to listening to some more episodes.

Bsalk ,

Just fun!

More of a wine drinker, then a sprits enthusiast. Enjoying the human stories behind the businesses. Rich can be a little campy, but he is a lot of fun to hang out with.

Boozedancing ,

A Good Old-Fashioned and Boozy Time was had by all!

Rich Baby! Thanks so much for having us on your podcast. You are a SUPERB and gracious host (i.e. you put up with our nonsense and didn't kick us off the air!), and we had a glorious time! Hope to do this again real soon. Cheers! - G=LO
