Red Bear Brewing Company

Episode description

The Brew Daddies speak with Bryan Van Den Oever and Simon Bee about the brewpub they're opening in NOMA DC, Red Bear Brewing Company.

We don't usually feature brewpubs on the show, but Red Bear has had an interesting path to brewing in DC and, with a historic location in a rapidly growing neighborhood, we thought it would be fun to highlight this coming-soon neighborhood gem during DC Beer Week.

Notice: Richard's mic malfunctioned and we recorded in a large, open, empty concrete room, so the sound isn't as good as we'd like. We hope you enjoy the show anyway.

You can find Red Bear Brewing Company at
