Episode 19 – Backroom Brewery (VA) + Three Floyds (IN)

Herb farming on Sunflower Cottage Farm, Billie Clifton realized the need for hops and began growing a hop field with the intention to create her own craft brewery in Virginia. Eventually, Backroom Brewery was founded, and today they create “artisan brews” based on the special herbs that they grow, in addition to the hops. We talk about the transition in history from gruit to hops and a little about the hop industry in general.

After, Nick Floyd of Three Floyds (Munster, IN) discusses the origins of the brewery, Dark Lord Day, and what Indiana breweries he considers to be vastly underrated.

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.

A note to advertisers:

The Building Breweries Podcast is currently procuring sponsorships for future episodes in order to fund new audio equipment! Additionally, I will be making the trip down to Tampa, Florida for the annual Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference and would love to have a sponsor for the trip. If you are a business (or perhaps know of a business), I’d love to discuss options and opportunities with you. Feel free to e-mail me at

Thank you for listening!

Michael, host of Building Breweries, is brand new to all of this (and he'll admit that every second he gets). Building Breweries is his first podcast project and hopes to see success in the future with more interviews from founders, owners, and brewers in order to learn more about the folks responsible for the good things we drink.
