Welcome to my 50th episode, Curvists!!! I celebrated this milestone with Renaissance man, Peter Agardy—cofounder of Saltwater Brewery, fine artist, and environmentalist. Peter and I talk about what goes into the making of a craft beer; from the infused ingredients to the barrel the brew is stored in, it’s a real science. Peter described the roots of the brewery and how it got off the ground, all the fun events they plan there—including trivia nights, live music, Sunday brunches, and more. Head to their website to stay on top of their events! As an added bonus, a super yummy food truck is pretty much always parked outside; and, after you taste a brew or two, ask about their Brewery tours. The place is a real experience!!
However, the backbone of the Brewery is not only the creation of craft beer, but also their heart of charity and love of our oceans. Peter shares info on all the charities they support and why/how they give back to our community and environment.
On top of his other great talents, being an artist is in this man’s blood just as much as the salt life and love of craft beer. Peter’s fine art presents super vivid underwater scenes that make you feel transported into a snapshot of the ocean itself. Look it up on his website; while browsing, look for the video of his creating the painting now seen on the Brewery’s Screaming Reels can. So cool!!
After we wrapped up the podcast, Peter gave me a tour of the Brewery, and I got to see firsthand where all the deliciousness is made. This wasn’t captured by audio; but, you can head to the Brewery website and check their tour schedule. Go see it for yourself! At the very end of this episode, you’ll hear him walk me through a tasty flight of four of their craft beers. Mmmmm…
