Episode 151: Esthela Likes to Drink


We are excited to finally officially introduce our new co-host, Esthela Davila.  She’s been on the show since the beginning of the year, but since we already had scheduled the shows we never got a chance to really find out more about her.  We start with the usual question of what was her first craft beer.  From there we do a follow-up to the Thorn Brewing conversation from Episode 136.5.  We take a small break and come back wondering why Esthela said yes to join the show.  During the discussion, we pivot to her love of drinking #SDBeer and how it has changed since joining the show.  We then delve into a few questions from Matthew Garcia.

Listener Questions

  • What could other indie breweries do to be more inviting to minorities?
  • What beer style or ingredient in beer can she not stand?
  • Opinion on TVs in breweries/bars.
