Pint Talking

Apr 14, 2022

This week I am joined once again by Bob Vokac from Wrecking Crew Brew Works for the opening of the show. In a new segment of the show called News and Views we discuss the topic of supply chain shortage issues and the impact it is having on brewing industry. We talked about alternative options to avoid supply chain issues as well as how to prepare for the impending shortages that we are sure to face in 2023. The Medina beer fest will take place on April 23rd from 5:30 to 10:30pm at MAD Brewing. The event is sold out, but I will be giving away two tickets on April 16th and in order to get entered complete the following tasks:

  1. Follow and like my page on Facebook at
  2. Follow and like my page on Instagram at
  3. Email me at and tell me why I should give you these tickets.

In the second half of the show, I travel down to Maize Valley Brewing in Hartville, Ohio. I spoke with Jake Turner who is the head brewer. Jake has been a part of Maize Valley since they started in 2014. As a former medic in the military and a former fireman Jake has faced a number of high stress situations, and because of his past careers he finds brewing to be the least stressful career he has ever had. Jake and I tasted his California Common, German Pils, West Coast IPA, and BA Imperial Stout. Jake sheds a light on how diverse Maize Valley is and how that has translated into success even throughout the pandemic.
