Breweries are popping up across the country so fast that it’s hard to keep up. Our guests this week, Isaac Arthur and Cody Fague of CODO Design, specialize in helping craft brewers with the branding process – from the taprooms, logos and website, to the story behind the breweries themselves. Having worked with dozens of breweries, CODO Design just released a new book – the Craft Beer Branding Guide. We sat down the the guys, drank some great local brews, and talked about the pitfalls of creating a beer brand.
Camper English, the founder of Alcademics, is one of the most important cocktail writers working in the industry today. His experiments and findings have been discussed and implemented into home and commercial bars all over the country. He even developed a method of making crystal clear ice at home, called “directional freezing”. With his new book, Tonic Water: AKA GNT WTF, he discusses the historical importance of tonic water, malaria, syphilis, and Operation Catdrop.
