Tap the Craft Episode 149: Talking Corona Crisis with Trek Brewing

In Episode 149 we bring back a good friend to help us talk about the impact of the coronavirus quarantine on small independent craft breweries.  John Ream of Trek Brewing, located outside of Columbus, OH, updates us on how Trek Brewing has grown over the last 18 months and provides his inside look at surviving the corona crisis. For our Brew Buzz segment we are honored to review an article written by listener Jim Kudzal discussing how breweries have shifted gears to weather the turbulent times and how consumers can help keep them afloat. So grab a beer and enjoy the show! 

We are proud to partner with B Cups, supplier of Outdoor Craft Beer Cups, for partnering up with us and I encourage our listeners to go visit their site at bcups.net or fermentedreality.com and check out the world’s first full line of style-specific plastic beer cups for people on the go. Whether hanging out on the beach or by the pool, or hiking the wilderness, or even enjoying some boating, B Cups are great for any place you can’t use standard glassware.
