CBoTB:–Independent Brewing – Part II: The Art of Brewing

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, I am unable to visit breweries.  Subsequently, we are repeating Craft Beer on The Bay blogs and podcasts from the last six years.  This is Craft Beer on The Bay featuring Independent Brewing from August 19, 2016.

Last week, President and Head Brewer Phil Rhudy told us about the vision, concept, and formation of Independent Brewing Company in Bel Air.  This week, Phil shares some of the fun… and art… in brewing.  Like many of his brothers and sisters in the brewing industry, Phil loves to innovate, experiment and create new and interesting variations on different beer styles.  It’s simply part of his passion for brewing craft beer.

(Phil Rhudy talks)

And that very creativity can be seen by just looking at the huge chalkboard near the bar where all 22 beers are listed.  Each one is different and each one is delicious. 

Here are a few to try:

  • Carpe Diem, a Double IPA
  • Bolan’s Red, a Red Ale
  • Election Year, a Barleywine, and
  • Blue-Eyed Blonde, a Belgian-style Blonde Ale

Whether you enjoy an Independent Brewing beer in their Main Street, Bel Air taproom, or take home a growler, you’ll be tasting craft beer at its freshest. 

Cheers!
