After a brief hiatus–and some serious craft beer drinking–Building Breweries is back with some improvements! Using new equipment, I was able to secure some interviews with a couple of “new” organizations in Kentucky.
First, I speak with Purna Veer, who just started growing hops at Veering Creek Farm in Oldham County, KY. Purna is the President of V-Soft Consulting, an IT Firm in Louisville, KY. Purna, interested in farming since he was little, saw the need of a larger hop farm in Kentucky for the growing craft beer industry. Veering Creek Farm hopes to be a leading force in the Hop Growers community, as well as open a winery on the farm in the future.
Then I visit Louisville’s newest East End brewery, Holsopple Brewing (coming soon). This is Kristy Holsopple’s and Sam Gambill’s first brewery. They are, however, working with over a decade of beverage industry experience, from breweries and distilleries of all sizes.
A note to listeners:
If you know of a brewery with an interesting origin story or background, or if you are a brewery and think you have a story to share, I’d be more than willing to learn more about it! Please reach out to me on Twitter or Facebook.
As always, I would be grateful if you subscribed to Building Breweries on iTunes and left me a rating/review. It would go a long way in helping me grow and attract other breweries.
Thank you for listening!
