Peter Hepp made his first batch of beer for a school science project, and he’s been brewing ever since! This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme welcome Peter into the studio to talk about brewing at Birreria at NYC’s Eatlay. Tune in to hear Peter talk about his days brewing in the Middle East during his time in the Navy. Peter talks about the importance of using local ingredients in brewing. Find out the best way to source local ingredients in New York City! Peter shares his special apple beer with Mary, Chris, and friend-of-the-show, Zack Kinney.
