[New Episode] The Beer Diaries: Independence Brewing Company

The latest episode from The Beer Diaries takes viewers on a tour of Austin’s Independence Brewing Co., which is now live on The Beer Diaries’ YouTube channel and on the official website.

In the latest episode, Greg Zeschuk, host of The Beer Diaries, talks to Rob and Amy Cartwright (the husband and wife team behind the brewery) and David Hinkle, the Operations Manager at the brewery. Independence is one of the older operating breweries in Austin, and is responsible for a number of mainstay Austin beers such as Austin Amber, Stash IPA and Bootlegger Brown, as well as a number of new experimental beers. Rob and Amy provide insight in to the craft beer scene and the challenges of starting their own brewery.

The Beer Diaries is hosted by Dr. Greg Zeschuk, a former medical doctor turned video game developer turned chief beer enthusiast.  Video game enthusiasts will recognize Zeschuk from the company he co-founded, BioWare, who are the creators of games like Baldur’s Gate, Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Star Wars: The Old Republic among others. Since leaving BioWare in late 2012, Greg has been focusing his creative passion in an entirely new direction and new topic: craft beer.

Led by Mike Mann, an Austin Director and Documentary filmmaker, The Beer Diaries production team is a talented group that like beer almost as much as they love telling great stories.  The initial concept behind The Beer Diaries is straightforward – host a series of interviews showcasing brewers and their beers with an end goal of celebrating and promoting craft beer around the world.  The first installment of episodes showcases brewers in and around Austin, Texas.  The Beer Diaries team is currently filming in Colorado.
