Cheers Everybody! We celebrate the 1 year anniversary (sadly a few days late) of Craft Beer Chronicles with our first interview with a local brewer. However, this is not just any local brewer, this is Brendan Gough the Head Brewer of Central Coast Brewing, a multi time Great American Beer Festival medal winning Brewery. We talk about local craft beer news, his beginnings in craft beer, and other interesting stories about his experiences working in the craft beer industry. We discuss Central Coast Brewing's 20th Anniversary Event in March and some of the amazing things their new facility will offer to local craft beer fanatics. Finally, Brendan answers some questions asked by local craft beer enthusiasts and answers quite possibly the most difficult Binge, Bong, Bail scenario yet.

Long time no update but thank you to everyone once again who has been supportive over these past few months. Its been a bit rough but it's great to be back on the mic talking about craft beer. On this episode we once again sit down with local homebrewer Lee Samways as well as musician and occasional beer drinker Ben Hein. We discuss what its like to volunteer for Central Coast brewing while we pour at their events, how to mix our loves (maybe just mine) of gambling and craft beer, and highlight how our local breweries won big at the Great American Beer Festival. We also review some beers from Offshoot Brewing Company, Woodland Empire Ale Craft, Tired Hands Brewing Company, and one of Lee's Gold Medal winning homebrews. Thanks for listening and Cheers!
