We are proud to offer, as our 52nd episode–yes, it’s been a year folks–our talk about the relaunch and resurgence of Cincinnati-area “heritage” beer brand George Wiedemann Brewing Co. We are joined by the driving forces behind their resurgence–and their big Kickstarter campaign–John Newberry (Owner and Founder), his wife Betsy and brother Doug. We talk about the importance of heritage brands to the future of craft beer, the entry into a crowded market and the built-in marketing importance of a brand that is over 100 years old. We also try a couple of Wiedemann’s beers (currently being brewed at Cellar Dweller Brewing in Morrow): their Royal Amber Dortmunder Lager and the especially tasty “Special Bock”. We are also honored to be selected again by Urban Artifact Brewing to debut their “Otso” Double Tart Brown w/Coffee. A busy show and a great conversation with Wiedemann Brewing Co. on this edition of Cincy Brewcast, “The Voice of Cincy Craft!”
