Wartega Brewing with Merlin Ward

Beer Friends

Merlin from Wartega Brewing joins us this week to talk about the brewery he owns and operates with his wife Mimi. A founding member of the Brewminaries ; Merlin tells us how he turned his home brew hobby into a fully functioning brewery. From the cultivation of their recipes to how they acquired their brewing equipment to we talk about the road they took from brewing in the kitchen of a Brooklyn apartment to their grand opening earlier this year. You can follow them on all social media platforms @wartega and you can get their beer visiting the taproom they share with Industry City Distillery (which boasts one of the best views in the city) or you can join the Wartgea Family to get exclusive release bottles every month. Grab a pint and join the conversation on facebook, twitter, or email us.
