Episode #10: Lightning Brewery, Part 2

Lightning Brewery


Part two of our interview with Jim Crute from Lightning Brewery.  To help with the interview, I am joined by Hooker and Brian Beagle from Sore Eye Sports.  We get into a good discussion about a certain Macro brewery and their Super Bowl commercial.


Jim has been in the biochemistry field for a while and decided one day to give all that up and start a brewery.  His passion is clean, solid beers usually German in style.  His background gives him a different perspective on brewing beer.  Jim is very knowledgable in brewing and very knowledgeable about the business of beer.  You can hear that when we talk about different styles of beer and how what Lightning does is different from other breweries.  We talk not only about that Super Bowl commercial, but also about safety while brewing.  We mention that Home Brewing Co. is now open.  Also please check out Lightning Brewing in Poway.
