Episode 30: Making Friends at Elder Son Brewing
This really is our 30th episode! This week Leo visited a new brewery, Elder Son Brewing, in the Heights in Houston, and he interviewed Robert Frye, brewer and owner. They discussed where the name Elder Son came from, how the logo came to be, and their journey of finding their location. Leo and Robert also connect over the community of craft beer. Shout out to Preston at The Grain Cellar in Humble, a great teacher who has coached and encouraged so many great brewers, including Robert. Leo and Robert also mentioned other memorable connections, including Premium Draught, Back Pew, and Fredonia Brewery. Listen to the end to hear Robert’s choice for his last beer on earth – it’s a good one!
Next time you’re in the Heights, check out Elder Son Brewing, right in the heart of the Heights. They are dog and kid friendly, and they typically have a food truck on site. Try Robert’s wife’s favorite beer, Grizzly Bolt, and the beer he has been making the longest, Yeller Weller.
Robert, thank you for your time and for the delicious beers.Thank you for listening. Robert says, “Serving beer is about making friends,” and we couldn’t agree more. Cheers, friends!
