In Ep. 6 of The Operation Shutdown I am joined by friend of the show Ed Grohl and very special guest Mike Simpson from Fetish Brewing Company. Their beer is brewed and locally distributed in Lancaster County, PA. As it states on their Facebook page Fetish is “Lancaster’s
sexiest smallest brewery, we make each beer by hand for a small community of local beer drinkers & we’d like to make a few for you too.” I could not have said it any better.
We had a great discussion about, Fetish’s business model, Lancaster brews, brewery equipment, what does it mean to brew small and local, and the name of Ed’s cat.
Beers we drank:
Flying Dog Heat Series Carolina Reaper Peach IPA
Troegs BBA Troegenator
My 2015 post on Fetish Brewing Company
Lancaster Malt Brewing Co. (The former name of Lancaster Brewing Company)
Lancaster Central Market (Which is awesome.)
Mean Cup (Which has the coolest logo ever. Full stop.)
Ballast Point and The Billion Dollar Deal (This link has autoplaying video… I am sorry.)
Yes…Someone in Lancaster Country really did have relations with a minipony.
Special thanks to Mike for taking time from his busy schedule to talk with us. There is tons of good stuff in here. You can find Fetish brewing on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. If it is not sold out already (and I both hope it is and that it is not as there were only 4 tickets left when we taped) check out Fetish on the Farm. I would love for an Operation Shutdown listenter to be the one to buy the last ticket.
Update — It just sold out this morning. So happy for them! If you missed, it go next year. I am going to be there.
Also, if you listen to the show and are going to Fetish on the Farm be sure to tell Mike and the guys you listen; that would be cool. You can tell them it was probably not the worst mistake they have ever made.

Shit… You are doing this here too now, Bearcat? Yes.
This week we are trying an “After Show.” So keep listening after I hit stop.
Think of the Aftershow as the post script for a weird Bearcat on Beer blogpost but in audio form.
I think it works and plan on making this a regular part of the podcast. If you like it, leave a note below or let me know on Twitter. If you think it sucks, yell at Ed on twitter.
