Six Rivers Brewery, Meredith Ripley and “Los” Sanchez

Meredith and Carlos “Los” Sanchez are passionate about beer — in fact Meredith invited Jessie and myself down so she could show us pairings of beer and food…normally I pair beer with a hot day and I’m good.  Obviously I have a lot to learn!  Listen to the interview or check out their website

Dave Franklin, Redwood Curtain Brewing

Our interview with Dave Franklin was scheduled for 10 a.m. –the problem?  I knew he was bringing beer for us to taste.  I stopped by Ramones and bought a couple of scones, one I wolfed down on the way to the station — the other I threw at Jessica Eden the moment I got through the door.  “Quick, eat this” I said –“we are going to be drinking beer in exactly 15 minutes” — and I’m really not much of a drinker, so I knew that breakfast really shouldn’t start with an alcoholic beverage.  Luckily Dave brought a thoughtful taste of beer for us, enough to really sample the product — but not enough to compromise the other interviews scheduled for that morning (at least I think it didn’t…but perhaps my perceptions were distorted…by beer…).

Jacob Pressey, Humboldt Regeneration

Jacob Pressey is starting a new business in Humboldt called Humboldt Regeneration — it will be a CSB, a Community Supported Brewery.  So, you get the picture, you get a growler — and bring it in to refill it every week with a new blend of beer (blend?…as you can see, beer isn’t my beverage…yet…) You buy in one month at a time — sound like something you’d like to do?  Check it out…
