ShuBrew’s Zach Shumaker, a longtime favorite of the Drinking Partners, stops by the studio is this fun, friendly, and fast episode. Listeners will learn how the latest Drinking Partners and ShuBrew collaboration beer – Bred – came to be, from the black malts to the cherry accents to the uniquely named moniker. A celebrity-inspired story from Zach connects all the beer dots, as Ed and Day add colorful commentary before the conversation shifts to video games and how intricately they are connected to ShuBrew’s beers. With each beer that Zach pours, he gifts listeners with exclusive information about the offering and explains how ShuBrew’s new fermenter system allows them to experiment more. Or, as Ed says, “Zach’s dropping jewels on this episode.” Beer lovers, especially those who enjoy learning about the behind-the-scenes processes and decisions, will particularly enjoy this interview, and its focus on the creation behind each beer that Zach has brought. From yeast and bacteria strains to tiny pizzas, the guys mix facts and fun in a way that will have you laughing. That Drinking Partners experience of mixing laughs with great beer continues Saturday, April 28 at the release party for Bred. Stop by ShuBrew from 3-7 pm to fill your growler with the Drinking Partners black pale ale before seeing live stand up at Comtra Theatre at 7 and 9:30 pm.
