The 1717 Brewcast sees the guys from Des Moines' 1717 Brewing Company get together each week to discuss beer, the stops and starts of opening and operating a brewery, and everything in between from yohimbe root to The Legends of the Hidden Temple.
Episode VIII: POS
The Brewcast's first ever guest and esteemed Knucklehead, Ryan, steps up to the plate and talks Point of Sale systems with us. Also, Matt has to choose between his love of Excel and a great POS system and Ryan shamelessly plugs and name-drops. And, introducing the Legend of the Bread Man.
Episode VII: T-Shirts and Yohimbe Root
The gang discusses their marketing update, a POS system, weight lifting tips, and what makes a sweet t-shirt (Hint: It's not Legends of the Hidden Temple).
Episode VI: Windchimes
The Brew Crew gets together to discuss a setback at 1717, naming beers, marketing and what little they know about it, and Matt's calves. Meanwhile, Alex and Matt's relationship reaches a new low.
Episode V: Matt Forgets Everything about DMS and Phil Butchers the English Language Helping
Matt and Phil go over the brewing process, the system at 1717, generational yeast, and what exactly DMS stands for.
Episode IV: Phil Makes Brown and Matt Makes History
Every time someone says "brown," take a drink, as Phil brings in his homemade Brown and Matt tests his Mexican lager (and his knowledge of our southern neighbor's history). The boys also laugh at the phrases "head retention" and "mouth feel" as they discuss their beer recipe-making process. Also, how to determine the sex of a hamster for some reason.
Episode III: Equipment and Encounters
Jerry comes in with a wine buzz as we discuss the size and use of all the brewing equipment as well as Matt's alien encounters, putting weird stuff in beer, what we want to see when we come into a taproom, Matt and Phil being dicks, and tambourines.
This is the epic Origin Story of 1717.
This was fun to listen too, and hear the back story’s of the owners, and to hear what events in their lives that lead them to opening 1717 brewery. Looking forward to the next pod cast and the opening of their business.
This podcast is hilarious and insightful at the same time, keep them coming!
