Brewery Travels is a podcast hosted by Joel Geier (aka Brewery Travels) that discusses a different city or region’s craft beer scene in each episode. Joel interviews two local experts, ranging from beer writers and beer bloggers to people working in the industry and even like-minded brewery adventurers. These discussions can have a wide range of topics, including: 

-How to approach the craft beer scenes when visiting a new city 
-How laws and regulations affect local breweries 
-How history has helped shaped the current beer scene
-What the future holds for local breweries
-Comparing different scenes that are within a close radius
-How other cultural influences have an effect on breweries (such as food, music, etc)
-Breweries having to overcome obstacles (both external and internal)
-What beers best represent the area
-And of course personal favorites from the guests and Joel himself

Joel has visited over 900 breweries across 44 states plus Washington D.C., and has been able to make connections with many amazing individuals because of his travels. He is currently living on the road with his family, constantly “exploring more content and doing extensive research” (which just means visiting breweries and drinking beer)! The goal of Brewery Travels is to provide more information about craft beer scenes from around the country, as well as shine a light on some of the excellent individual breweries that call these cities home. 

From Portland, Maine to San Diego, California. Austin, Texas to Duluth, Minnesota. The bright lights of New York City to the farmland of rural Iowa. Brewery Travels plans to run the gauntlet of locations, providing in-depth information on as many places as possible. With episodes coming out weekly on Thursdays, Brewery Travels is where you can get your fix if you enjoy a craft beer or traveling. Cheers!
