Episode 425 – Ethereal Brewing
Craig’s recent travels brought him to Ethereal Brewing who have been bringing a wide variety of bold styles to Lexington, Kentucky for the better part of a decade. We hear from co-founder and head brewer Brandon Floan on the brewery’s evolution, the real fifth element, the ease of barrel access in actual bourbon county, how making sake is different than making beer, and how to brew a beer that gives you weird dreams. We also talk about misunderstood roller coasters, Craig’s entirely useless smell-based superpower, and the unfortunate way Baba Yaga and Dark Lord are connected. We also have a first on the show with sake – and we were totally, actually unprepared.
