Braven Brewery & Leave the Planet
This week on Snacky Tunes, solo host Greg Bresnitz is chatting with the founders of Braven Brewing Company - Eric Feldman and Marshall Thompson. With offices located around the corner from Heritage Radio Network in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Braven Brewing Company came about in 2013. Focused on creating crisp, perfectly balanced ales and lagers, Eric and Marshall take Greg through how they came together to establish their own brewery from the bottom up as well as the trials and tribulations along the way. The guys share their plans for a future taproom (in Bushwick) and bringing the brewing operation totally back to Brooklyn as well. It's clear that Braven takes pride in being an active member of the Bushwick community and is excited to help revive Brooklyn as one of America's top brewing capitals. In the second half of the show, Greg welcomes the band Leave the Planet who is coming to HRN straight from London. The band is made up of Nathalie Bruno and Jack Milwaukee, two musicians who met after moving into the same East London flat. They relay to Greg that their project was born when they discovered their mutual love for the same bands. The band name itself comes from the song â€˜Leave The Planet' by one of their favorite bands, Galaxie 500. Ultimately their sound melds these influences along with vintage synths, drum machines and guitars. This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.
