When Sheryl and I moved to Santa Rosa, we were excited to be living in California, but we were also excited to explore the local craft beer scene. As you know, we travel far and wide to find delicious locally brewed craft beer. We had access to a lot of great beer in SW Florida, but now we have access to well established breweries like Russian River Brewing Company, Bear Republic Brewing Company and Lagunitas Brewing Company. There are also a lot of small breweries in town like Cooperage Brewing Company, Plow Brewing Company and Fogbelt Brewing Company. In an effort to visit them all, we discovered Parliament Brewing Company in Rohnert Park, California.
One night we drove down, grabbed a seat at the bar, and ordered a flight. We had a good conversation with the bartender, and ended up meeting Justin Bosch, the brewmaster. We talked for a bit and I mentioned my blog. A few days later we were talking via email and he agreed to an interview. We headed back down on a day they were closed, but Justin was brewing. We spent time together, learned more about the brewery, his beers, his education and his plans for expansion. Did you know a group of owls is called a “parliament?” Justin talks about that, too! This was a fun interview and I enjoyed seeing Justin in his element. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Justin Bosch. Cheers!
