I’m fortunate enough to occasionally travel these days. When I do, I try my best to track down the most interesting and best craft breweries to visit, and now, interview. So, when I was scheduled to visit Dallas, TX recently, I jumped on the opportunity. Although I was only able to visit Oak Highlands Brewery, I knew I still had to speak with Peticolas over the phone.
To start off this episode, I visited the folks over at Oak Highands Brewery, met up with Derrin Williams (Geologist) and Brad Mall (attorney), and we talked all about their family/community-friendly brewery. We also had the opportunity to delve into a little Dallas beer history, as well as what the Lonestar State and Dallas’ regional guild is doing to help ease up on the seemingly-strict alcohol laws.
Later, joined by phone, I speak with Michael Peticolas of Peticolas Brewing Co. We talk A LOT…about marketing and logos, soccer and their brand new taproom that just opened at the beginning of this year. Michael, another attorney, brings up his concerns about the social media app, Untappd, and how it, in his opinion, has all sorts of liability issues that I hadn’t previously considered. Something to think about.
If you know of a brewery with an interesting origin story or background, or if you have 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, Facebook, or Instagram.
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!
In each episode of Building Breweries, Michael Moeller speaks with a new brewery representative, from establishments of all sizes, about their origin as a brewery and other Beverage Industry issues, ranging from wholesaling to state regulations. This is Michael’s first podcast project.
