Welcome back to the Friends That Carry On Podcast! We’re a group of friends that like to travel the world together. We want to share our passion for travel through travel tips and tricks we’ve picked up along the way and stories of our adventures!
For episode 13, we have some very special guests: Adam & Katie from Ale Adventures! Ale Adventures is a popular beer blog based out of Minnesota, and one of our favorite travel blogs. Brian Romine is the host and tchotchke holder and is joined by Friends, Eric Fargo, Tony Price, and Jim Scott. Because our guest is Ale Adventures, our tchotchke for this week is Can-O-Bliss, an IPA from Oskar Blues, a brewery based out of CO. In this episode, we got to know Adam & Katie better and learned more about what beer and travel means to them.
You can listen along here:
We started off asking what started Ale Adventures and what gave them the idea to blog about beer and breweries. Based out of Minnesota, Adam and Katie have taken Ale Adventures to 7 overseas breweries, 7 breweries in North Dakota, 24 breweries in Wisconsin, 7 breweries in Illinois, and 98 breweries in Minnesota. With a scoreboard of that size, we were curious what their take was on different beers throughout the world.
Since Adam & Katie are based out of Minnesota, we wanted to know more about the brewery scene there and what some of their favorite places are. We also had some suggestions of places and breweries we have been as well, and shared some of our favorite places. We also wanted to get to know more about the creators and co-writers of Ale Adventures, and how they met, so we asked more about where and how they met and how that led into a mutual appreciation and passion for beer.
Since we’re a travel blog, we were interested what got them traveling more out of the country to visit breweries. So we asked if beer was the origin of these trips, or if they simply selected countries and found some breweries when they were there. We were also interested in their perspective of international vs. national beers and if they noticed any major difference between the two. We thought Ale Adventures was a great beer blog and now we can confirm it also has some great creators/writers! Definitely make sure to check out Ale Adventures blog or Instagram for great beer content!
