Trellis to Table

A Podcast for Farmers and Brewers – New Episodes Every Thursday

Hey there guys and gals

Hello all, I hope that this week has been great for you and that you have a wonderful weekend planned. As you may have noticed there is no show this week. I am working on a few things that I believe will increase the value of the listening experience, and will, in turn, make it easier to get even more of those great guests that you have come to expect on the show. We will have a new episode soon and thank you again for sticking with us!

Verdi Local

This week we have a great guest and good friend, Jeremy from a local distillery here in Reno Verdi Local. We talk about all things from beer to spirits and on how different ingredients affect the outcome of both.

BC Hop Co, British Columbia

Hello everyone. Welcome to the re-launch of Trellis to Table so to speak. I am your new host, Anders. I am very excited to continue the journey with everyone in the community, and meeting great people.

Speaking of great people the first guest we have is Dwayne from the BC Hop Co. (www.bchop.ca) We talk about the problems of growing and expanding in B.C. as well as the interesting out of the box ways he is using the hops. If you haven’t heard of hopped corn (www.hoppedcorn.com) then you should check it out.

Also Dwayne has a hop festival tomorrow Oct. 1st that you should definitely attend if you have the chance, I wish I could be there!

Stay tuned next week for a little introduction to myself and my back story.

Hitting the ol’ Dusty Trail

Hey folks!

It’s a long story – but Trellis to Table is going on hiatus for the time being. Listen to the episode – it’s only about twelve minutes long this week!

As always, if you haven’t checked out HopsHarvester.com you’re letting yourself and your business down. American designed, built and beloved, the Hopster 5P is the Air Jordan of small hop farming. Get into it.

Brewer, Grower, Entrepreneur: Bob Bero

I met Bob through the Trellis to Table Facebook page, and we had a really great conversation! He’s been involved in craft brewing and hop agriculture since pre-2000, and hearing his journey was both inspirational and educational.

Bob founded B-Hoppy, the original hop candy company, and hearing the background on a company that exists within the brewing and brewing agriculture world that is neither brewing nor growing was a fascinating tale.

Malting Michigan Barley with Erik May of Pilot Malt House

Pilot-2-e1422996068380Today’s interview, continuing our ongoing coverage of Michigan beer, beer agriculture, and the folks who provide it, is with Erik Mays, the brains behind Pilot Malthouse, which is a company that is just exploding right now!

We talk about business, we talk about protein levels, we talk about what success means for folks working as beer professionals today.

It’s also a special time in Trellis to Table history – it was around this time last summer when I was doing the first batch of interviews for the podcast. While this is episode number 48, it took me quite a while to get all of those first chats recorded, the web site built, and everything set up just-so. I’ve learned so much since then, it’s been a real pleasure to have had the chance to talk to so many inspiring professional brewers, farmers, and everyone in between.
