Collaboration Across the Nation

Welcome planet earth beer lovers to the eighth episode of Short’s Cast! Today’s episode is all about the brewing community showing each other love by coming together and creating delicious beer recipes.

We are extremly happy to be joined by Matt Gallagher, Head Brewer of Half Acre Brewery in Chicago, Illinois and Sam Calagione CEO and Founder of Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, Deleware. Short’s has collaborated on three beers between these two breweries. Freedom of ’78 and Captain Fantasy were both collaborations between Short’s and Half Acre, and Cornholio was a collaboration between Short’s, Dogfish Head, and Three Floyds.

Music from this episode is performed by Don Julin and Billy Strings out of Traverse City.

We also get to meet the “Best Beard on Short’s Staff” brewer, Al Russell, for the first time. Al tells us his story about his trip out to Delaware and the tour of Dogfish Head Brewery guided by none other than Sam Calagione himself.

Woj sums up the episode by giving us the specs on Freedom of 78, a guava IPA. This brew was inspired by Half Acre Brewery‘s and Joe Short’s favorite band, Ween.
