Host Rebecca Baer talks to a variety of people in the state’s brewing community, from pioneer Michael N. Bryant of Dunedin Brewery to relative newcomers such as Robb Larson and Lisa Colburn of Grindhaus Brew Lab, as well as representatives from the University of Florida’s hop research lab and The University of South Florida-St. Petersburg Brewing Arts program.

Baer even allowed me to add my two cents to the conversation.

You can view the show at this link, or check the schedules of your local PBS stations for when it might air there.
