    Episode 160: Elevate Nepal and Historic Brewing Co.

    Episode 160: Elevate Nepal and Historic Brewing Co.

    Coffee is great. Beer is great. Beer with coffee is really great. So when Historic Brewing let me know about a beer they do with Flagstaff-based Elevate Nepal every year that is launched at a Big Lebowski themed bowling event I had to know more. In this episode I sit down with Dan Maurer from Elevate Nepal and Kaitlyn Wolin from Historic Brewing to talk about the project as well as how Dan and his team are working tirelessly to help the people of Nepal including growing of amazing coffee.

Great Rep for AZ Beer!

Really enjoy this podcast - as someone who loves AZ, loves beer and loves podcasts. Appreciate the interviews with local operations and learning about new openings etc. As a homebrewer, it’s fun to learn about other people and their processes - whether it’s the Beer 101 features, or discussions of all the work that went into developing and opening a new brewery or tap room. Also really enjoy hearing my guy, Marcus, get some love in the beer reviews! It’s all kept pretty casual which makes it an easy listen. Seems to get better all the time - keep it up!

Love it!

Just moved from California’s Central Coast and immediately fell in love with a couple of breweries in the valley. I’ve had the opportunity to learn about and enjoy others here in the Phoenix area and can’t wait to visit more in the state, all thanks to this podcast!

Great Road Map for AZ Beer

I started listening to the podcast, as an out of stater, to get a grasp on the craft beer scene. It has led me to some great places. Definitely a good starting point for anyone intending to visit AZ.
