Take a drive down Rt. 11 and stop in the picturesque small town of Lisbon, and that’s where you’ll find Numbers Brewery. Where’s the name come from and how’d they get started? Why Lisbon? What’s with the out of order numbered menu? Co-founder Brock Beatty spills the beans on this week’s podcast, where he joined Lisa Resnick to talk all that, the amazing collaboration between brewers in the region and where Numbers is headed. Plus, he reveals a few of his favorite go to spots on both sides of the Ohio River.
You asked, and we listened – we’re bringing back the Homes and Hops videos with a stop in Akron to check out R. Shea Brewing and meet with the owner/brewer himself, Ron Shea. These guys have a great thing going out there where they are taking their own approach to brewing some fantastic beer. With two brewery/restaurants, in the Valley and a new 56,000 sf location in the Canal, they’re helping bring the resurgence of Akron and have become a neighborhood staple.
Andrew DiPaolo, WFMJ, Sundog Cellars founder Nicole Ice, a whole lot of laughter, a little debauchery, and calling DiPaolo out on the forecast. There’s not really much else to say. Enjoy.
