Straight from the farm, and into your glass! This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett are talking with two brewers who put their own spin on the term ‘local’. Paul Dlogukencky represents Long Island with his nanobrewery, Blind Bat Brewery. Tune into this episode to hear how selling at the Greenmarket has allowed for many Blind Bat collaborations. Hear about Paul’s Long Island Potato Stout, and why it’s important to get the word out about local breweries. Jason Sahler is a longtime homebrewing hoping to take the professional route with Strong Rope Brewery. Tune in to hear Jason talk about his love for local ingredients, and why beer should reflect the seasons. Hear about some of Jason’s unique recipes featuring raspberries, basil, plantains, lavender, and more! Thanks to our sponsor, Hearst Ranch.

“All brewers should consider selling at Greenmarkets because you are exposing yourself to people into local food- locavores. Many people at the Greenmarket have never heard of any of the breweries on Long Island!” [4:30]

“If you’re part of a CSA share, sometimes you get too much stuff and you can’t actually use it. Freeze stuff if you can.” [25:15]
