This episode leads with Dan Lehnerer of New Oberpfalz Brewing (Griffith, IN). Dan comes to us by the recommendation of Nick Floyd (of Three Floyds Brewing), calling Dan’s craft brewery one of the most underrated breweries in Indiana.
In the second half of the episode, Bryan Simpson and Eric Salazar of New Belgium share their Fat Tire origin story. They talk about their new foeders, the new Asheville facility, and the various 25th anniversary events they’re putting on. Give it a listen, and find out which brewery impressed Eric Salazar the most during their Fat Tire & Friends Collaboration project. You’ll want to ride a bike after this one.
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!

About New Oberpfalz Brewing
New Oberpfalz Brewing takes its name from a district in Bavaria called the Oberpfalz (or “Upper Palatinate” in English). The Oberpfalz is located in the northeast corner of Bavaria and is comprised of the frontier between Nuremberg, Germany and the German/Czech border. It is a rugged landscape, rich in brewing history, and home to many great beers. The Oberpfalz is also the mystical center of Germany, and the original home to many of the now familiar tales inked by the Brothers Grimm and Franz Xavier Von Schoenwerth. We specialize in German ales and lagers but maintain a roster of esoteric beer styles and bring the beer taste experiences of the Oberpfalz to America.
