Episode 17: Dan Minner from Ellicottville Brewing Company (Part 2)

Today’s Guest: Dan Minner

Dan Minner has been working with Ellicottville Brewing Company for over 17 years, most of that time as their head brewer. His creativity, attention to detail, and overall skill with brewing have helped EBC to grow into the multi-location powerhouse that it is today. In this conclusion of our interview with Dan, we talk about beer as it relates to travel, touching on the craft beer scene in Mexico, some of our favorite beer festivals around the world, and a few of the best places Dan has been for beer. Be sure to catch the first half of this interview in Episode 16 too.

Today’s Co-Host: Erik Coleman

Erik Coleman from Beer By Coleman was our guest on the podcast just a couple of episodes ago and he’s already worked his way up to co-hosting. Erik’s background in the western New York brewing scene made him the perfect choice to help interview Dan at EBC.
