What You Missed On Beer Sessions Radio™ – Freaktoberfest 2012 (9/11/12)

They call it “The Mardi Gras of Beer Festivals.” It’s Freaktoberfest, and it’s coming this Saturday, September 15th. Host Jimmy Carbone welcomes Freaktoberfest founder (and Smuttynose lover and field sales rep) Pat Fondiller, who reveals the origins of New York City’s wildest beer festival. Also weiging in is Albert Antonucci, owner of Greenwood Park, the bar and beer garden that is hosting Freaktoberfest. One of the many breweries at Freaktoberfest (see below) is Founders, represented by Brand Manager Tim Traynor, the Brand Manager for Founders Brewery. He previews the Founders launch of their Breakfast Stout on September 21st. Finally, we hear from Matt Polacheck, the man behind all of Shmaltz Brewing’s crazy designs.
