In episode 14, Ed Grohl, Easy Pretzel, and Bearcat, welcome Scott Smith, founder, and owner of East End Brewing Company. In a far-ranging conversation, we discuss the brewery, Barleywine (#BIL), the trials of starting a brewery 15 years ago, and the sad lonely death of a keg of beer.
Be sure to follow East End Brewing on Twitter, Instagram and read Scott’s very nice blog.
