    “If you could drink a beer with one person, dead or alive, who would it be, and what beer would you drink?”

    It’s a question you’ve asked your buddies over your third round of brews, but what if you could ask that same question to some of your favorite local brewers? Well wonder no more – that’s just what I did!

    Here are answers from some of Fort Worth’s amazing brewers – some funny, some heartwarming, but one thing’s clear – we’ve got some rad guys brewing our local favorites:

     

     

    Austin Heisch   “I’d like to have an Old Rasputin with Lou Reed. I think it would be fascinating to hear stories of the New York music scene in the 60s and 70s, and he just seems like a guy who’d be into huge, roasty beers!”

       Austin Heisch – Brewer/BarrelMaster at Rahr & Sons Brewing Company

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Jacob Prosser   “Henry Clay, because he could drink with the best of them and was a fine card player. I think it would be so cool to talk to him about how he held the Union together as the Great Compromiser over a game of poker. He represented Kentucky as a senator, so I’d have a Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout with him.”

       Jacob Prosser – Brewer at Shannon Brewing Company

     

     

     

     

    Chuck Epperson   “My dad passed when I was young, and I wish I could see him again – he was always the coolest guy in CO, so I’d like to have his favorite beer, Coors Banquet, with him.”


    Chuck Epperson – Brewer/Brewery Operations at HopFusion AleWorks

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Adam T Gonzales   “I’d have a Martin House Daybreak with Kurt Vonnegut – it’s the Breakfast of Champions.”

       Adam T Gonzales – Head Unicorn/Brewer at Chimera
    Brewing Company

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Mike Casey   “Honestly, I would love to be able to have a beer I’ve brewed with my Dad. He passed before I began working at Panther Island.”

       Mike Casey – Head Cellarman/Asst Brewer/Ninja at Panther Island Brewing

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

       “Macy MooreI’d say Gene Kranz, former NASA flight director during the Apollo missions. As far as beer… I’d say we could easily drain a slim of my American Porter between the two of us.”

       Macy Moore – Brewer/Business Operations
    at HopFusion Ale Works

       Ben Wood – Brewer at The Collective Brewing Project

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    James Herrington   “My mom. She’s still alive, but has been slowly deteriorating mentally and physically from Alzheimer’s. I got into brewing after she had been diagnosed, so she’s never tried any of the beer that I’ve brewed.”

       James Herrington – Brewer at The Collective Brewing Project

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Shannon Carter   “First, I’d tell him not to get on that helicopter! Then after, I’d have liked to sit down with Stevie Ray Vaughn and talk to him about music. I feel like he was making his best music right before his death. I’d have a lemonade with him, and celebrate his sobriety.”

       Shannon Carter – Owner/Brewer at Shannon Brewing Company

     

     

     

     

    Mannie Flores   “My dad’s been gone ten years, so it’d be cool to sit down for a beer with him. Willie Nelson would be fun, too, because you know he’d bring something fun with him! I’d have a barrel-aged Regulator.”

       Mannie Flores – Cellarman/Head of Taco Operations at Rahr & Sons Brewing Company

     

     

     

     

     

    13090130_10100232468919249_1600002444_n   “My pick would be Neil Gaiman because he is my favorite author. I’d drink La Folie, then switch to a cask conditioned Black Butte Porter.”

    Jason Perez   “Sam Calagione – I’ve met him before and he’s a super nice guy – very down to Earth. Makes i  easy to talk with someone when they’re that way. I’d like to share a Midas Touch or anything from the Ancient Ales series.”

       Jason Perez – Brewer at Martin House Brewing Company

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Ryan Deyo   “My grandfather. I would have liked to introduce him to craft beer – mine or otherwise – he was a Budweiser man until the day he died. He had this beat up koozie that was more duct tape than foam – him and that koozie are apart of some of my favorite childhood memories.”

       Ryan Deyo – Owner/Brewer at The Collective Brewing Project

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Matt Hill   “I’d love to sit down and have a beer with Fritz Rahr – He paved the way for craft beer in North Texas, and we wouldn’t be here doing what we’re doing without him. I’d share a ’15 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Winter Warmer – it was awesome!”

       Matt Hill – Brewer/Brewery Operations at HopFusion Ale Works

     

     

     

     

    Mike Goldfuss   “The guy who came in from a hunt and saw an old pot filled with grain and rainwater and thought ‘Hmm… I’m going to drink that’. I’d want to drink from that old pot with the first guy to ever get drunk.”

       Mike Goldfuss – Owner/Brewer at The Collective Brewing Project
