72 EpisodesProduced by Junto MediaWebsite

The official podcast of! This is a show about breweries: the business, the beer, the craftspeople who run them and the drinkers who love them. Join Adam and Richard as they speak with brewers, brewery owners, and all kinds of folks involved in the craft beer scene.


Rocket Frog Brewing Company

The Brew Daddies travel to Sterling, VA to sit down with owner Richard Hartogs and head brewer Russell Carpenter of Rocket Frog Brewing Company. In the short nine months since opening, Rocket Frog has had some amazing success, including a bronze medal at The Great American Beer Festival for their brown ale, Wallops Island. 
The Brew Daddies learn how Rocket Frog came together and what drove Richard and his twin brother to open it. Russel shares the details of their three vessel, 10-barrel system brewhouse.  
The Brew Daddies probe the origins of the brewery's unusual name and why the frog in the logo is blue rather than green. It's a wonderful story that informs not just the name of the brewery but the names of their beers as well.
Rocket Frog appeals to the community with trivia contests, yoga days and game nights, along with food trucks on the weekend. If you want to taste some award-winning beers be sure to pay them a visit!
