Interview with Craft Beer Drinker: Tatiana Peavey of fugglybrew.com

Back in 2010 my cousin and I stumbled up a cool little site called fugglybrew.com. I don’t remember exactly how we ran across it, but we did. I remember reading the posts and thinking “Man, this girl is a genius.” Her posts really spoke her mind. She not only spoke of the craft beer community in a whole, she also wrote about the politics that had to do with it. Long story short, since then I have been trying to get a hold of Tatiana Peavey for an interview and finally, I locked her in. I approached her through email, explained California Castaway’s reason for the email and she did not hesitate to say “Yes” to the interview. So without further a-brew, Let us begin…

Interview with Craft Beer Drinker: Alan Espino

I met Alan Espino by chance. He contacted me because he wanted some graphic design work done. Upon getting to know each other better – I like to get to know my clients so that we know we are compatible to work with each other – we both found out one amazing detail…we both love craft beer. He mentioned that he brews, and I mentioned that I run a crafty little website that revolves around craft beer. Alan is a man who highly appreciates craft beer and really knows his stuff. Before we started the interview, he began with:

Interview with Brewing Team of Baying Hound Aleworks – Part I: Paul Rinehart

Upon walking into the 1,350 square foot warehouse in Rockville Maryland, I began to get the idea of what a nano-brewery looks like. It was small, but not cramped. I walked in just as Rory Clark, Quality Control Specialist, and his friend Lance were testing the gravity of one of their beers. I was excited to meet Paul Rinehart and Lindsey Miller, head brewers of Baying Hound Aleworks. As new as this team is to the industry, they have already been interviewed by the Brewer’s Association, Mid-Atlantic Brewing News, The Washington Post, and Beer Connoisseur. Baying Hound started operations in July of 2010, but wasn’t officially open until November 2010. The brewery is named in honor of Paul’s late bloodhound, Marmalade. All the beers are bottle-conditioned and capped by hand. They produce about two barrels per week, which amounts to about 30 cases of 22 ounce bottles. Within the next month, they should be expanding beyond their pale ale and porter by adding an India Brown Ale, IPA, and Lindsey’s masterpiece, Angel’s Nectar Chamomile Wheat. I had an absolute blast hanging out with everyone. Here’s how Part I of our Q and A session went:

Interview with Craft Beer Drinker: Alex “Prado” Fabiola

I have known Prado for a very long time. I say about 5 years or so. It wasn’t until last year at mine and Ally’s wedding that I found out that he shared the same beer palate as myself and Miguel. When I saw the beer-inspired tattoo and saw him sipping on his Coney Island at my wedding I said “You like craft beer?” With a crazy stare he said, “Hell Yeah!!!” Thanks for your time Prado. Sit back and check out the interview.
