With summer temperatures on the rise, hosts Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett are talking the NYC Brewers Pro-Am and hot-weather fermentations and with friend and owner of Bitter & Esters, John La Polla. The NYC Brewers Pro-Am is a friendly collaboration/competition pairing local homebrewers with some of the five boroughs’ best professional breweries and John shares highlights from last year’s event as well as things to come this year, including details of the fabulous grand prize. With no shortage of good beers to enjoy, John stresses that these particular brews won’t be seen anywhere else due to the collaborative nature of the event. After the break, the group talks about the contraption known as the PicoBrew that can brew at the touch of a button and the varying techniques to be used along with it. Tune in for tips and tricks for summer brewing and more! This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.
