If you’ve been looking for breweries to visit in the Southern states, why not have some fun while doing the research? Join Ken and me this week for a fearless venture with A Fearless Venture as we guide you through breweries in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee.
But who exactly are A Fearless Venture? They are Brian and Teresa Ott, web designers, SEO gurus, and our BFF’s on the road. But more importantly they love beer, and they travel!
We figured if we were going to continue our On Location podcast series (our first one was On Location in SW Colorado), we should have a conversation around a campfire while talking about breweries, drinking beer, and laughing with friends.
Granted, we haven’t made it to all the breweries in the South, but between the four of us, we’ve done a damn good job. For the second in our On Location series, we visited Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee this go-around. If we didn’t hit up your state yet, no fears, eventually we will; you’ll just have to keep listening.
“The liver is evil and deserves to be punished.”
