Ep. 47-& Adam & Castle Island Brewing Co.

Hi everyone and welcome to another episode of People & Pints! I don’t want to bury the lead so I’ll announce right here, in the second sentence, that this is also the final episode of P&P (at least for now). For eagle-eared listeners, it has been pretty obvious that over the past few months there have been gaps in content on this site and as my final semester of university is winding down, I’ve been sidetracked with lots of other responsibilities. And as fun as the podcast and blog have been, I’ve had to shift focus onto more pressing matters like school and work. Running a podcast isn’t that difficult but it certainly lost quality and regularity as I got busier. Anyway, I really loved this project and whether or not there were a lot of listeners, friends and colleagues seemed to enjoy the idea of People & Pints. I have no doubt that it will return in some capacity in the future. Until then, I’ll leave everything on the site as is.

IMG_4862This episode of People & Pints was fantastic and I had a blast chatting with Adam. He shared the Castle Island Brewing story and the local flavor of Norwood. The drive down was great and I enjoyed getting a little bit out of Boston on such a nice day. The beers were delicious and Adam shared some really great stories about Castle Island Brewing and what it takes to open a brewery in the Boston area (and at all, for that matter). Construction is well under way on the forthcoming Castle Island taproom and I encourage everyone to seek out cans of the beer or visit the brewery if you get a chance to!


Thanks for supporting the podcast and be sure to check out this final episode!




Ep. 46-& Matt & Ryan & Night Shift Brewing North by Northeast Stout

Hey, everyone! It’s been a long time since the last episode. In the latter half of senior year, the stresses and duties of normal life have taken precedent over this fun project I’ve been pursuing, so I’ve had to put the podcast on the back burner. However, we definitely have a slate of a few episodes coming up. Including this one. I was joined for this episode by friends and neighbors, Matt and Ryan, who have joined me on my quest for delicious local beer this year. We recently visited Lamplighter¬†and have plans to visit a few more breweries. We drank a fascinating, slightly confusing (at least for me) collaboration brew from Night Shift and The North Brewery. Night Shift is one of my favorite breweries and I was happy to taste this one-off release. We talked about our experiences through senior year and our thoughts on local beer.
