This week Jimmy explores the local sourcing and supply chains that bring you some of the best beers with Geoff Wenzel, R&D brewer at Industrial Arts Brewing, Mike McManus, director of brewing operations at Industrial Arts Brewing, Phil Neumann with Mainstem Malt, and Kevin Kain, beer blogger @Casketbeer. Kevin and Mike start us off diving into the local sourcing of ingredients from New York State and highlight Industrial Arts Brewing’s landscape series. Everyone emphasizes how local farm partnerships, as well as storage and production techniques, have dramatically improved our access to high-quality local ingredients over the past ten years. Phil notes how despite the challenges of Covid in the craft malt industry, a surprising benefit might be that the average consumer now knows the word supply chain. Crack a locally sourced beer and have a listen!
