    Kim West and Linden Preuss at Riptide Brewing in Bonita Springs

    We made it to 75 episodes! Yay! This week, we are heading back to Bonita Springs. We've had an interview in this building before--back when it was the new home of Momentum Brewhouse. Now, it's the newest outpost of Naples-based Riptide Brewing: Riptide Bonita Springs! We chat again with Riptide's Owner, Kim West, and their Operations Manager, Linden Preuss, about obtaining the brand new brewery, Naples vs. Bonita Springs, and what the new production space means for the future of the Riptide brand.

    Miami's Todd Space of Master Brewer Academy and Est. 33 Thai Craft Brewery and Kitchen

    Miami's Todd Space of Master Brewer Academy and Est. 33 Thai Craft Brewery and Kitchen

    Todd Space's background as a high school science teacher helped to further his focus and interest in brewing beer. Finally, after 16 years in Miami-Dade classrooms (and more domestically and abroad), Todd took his science knowhow and curriculum-creating skills to establish Miami's Master Brewer Academy. We chat with Todd to learn more about the MBA and how he is helping to create Miami's next generation of brewers. He's also brewing himself as part of the team that opened Est. 33 Thai Craft Brewery and Kitchen in Brickell City Centre. This exciting new Thai Fusion restaurant features a full lineup of beers to complement the tapas-style menu. We will also get a great sneak preview from Todd of Miami's first-ever Miami Beer Week this September--an event Est. 33 will be hosting. Listen in...
