WILK Friday BeerBuzz–20 Jan 2012

WILKFridayBeerbuzz3We welcome all sorts of guests onto the Friday BeerBuzz…and all have one thing in common…a passion for craft beer…and whether they are CEO’s or master brewers, they all share that passion with our listeners.  Whether it is a large brewery or a small brewery, the passion is always the same….and we love tapping into it.

Today we talked to Jamie Bartholomaus, President & Brewmaster for Foothills Brewing Co in Winston-Salem, NC.  Foothills Brewing is a relatively small brewery that brews 17 different seasonal and year-round beers, BUT only bottles two beers.  Of the two beers Jamie and the crew bottle, one generates more excitement when the bottles are released…and while Foothills Brewing beers are not distributed very far outside the greater Winston-Salem area, their impact is felt all the way into Northeastern PA.

We started talking to Jamie back in December, and he was nice enough to join us on the Friday BeerBuzz during the most hectic month of the year at Foothills.  Every year, Jamie releases a special Imperial Stout that people travel from all over the US to get their hands on.  That beer is Sexual Chocolate and the release date is 1/27…NEXT Friday.

This beer is bog in a lot of way.  Big in ABV, big in body, big in flavor and big in excitement.  One of the most traded and sought after beers, Sexual Chocolate is a beer that every beer lover covets, every craft beer enthusiast chases and for those lucky enough to sample it…it’s a brew you’ll never forget.

It was a blast talking to Jamie and sampling with him today, and I can only hope that Jamie’s appearance is just the beginning of Foothills transition into wider distribution, and wider recognition.  A special thank you to Jamie for spending the time with us today during the busiest week of the year for Foothills.  We appreciate the company and we especially appreciate the opportunity to sample Foothills Sexual Chocolate with you.


to Jamie Bartholomaus from Foothills Brewing, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
