STORIES FROM THE CRAFT BEER INDUSTRY
Hey there! We assume that since you’ve stumbled upon our page that you’re a fan of craft beer. Well, you’ve come to the right place! The Midwest produces some of the best craft beer in America, thanks to the unique styles and talented brewmasters that call it home. There is so much to see, learn about, and experience with Pure Brews America!
Pure Brews is not just a show about beer; although you will learn a lot about the brews produced by the booming microbrewing industry. Pure Brews is about the history, the innovation, and the characters that have taken a small brewing revolution and turned it into a nation-wide force.
Our host, Shannon Long, goes behind the scenes and meets the brewmaster rock stars that are the driving force behind the unique and delicious beers being produced! They share stories, successes, failures, and maybe even a secret or two about how they make the magic happen.
Strict German purity laws, a taproom within a Detroit assembly-line style production facility, an urban farm growing brewing ingredients, and Gold-medal winning beers are all stories you’ll encounter on Pure Brews America.
Meet the Host: Shannon Long
"While my adept abilities in consuming and enjoying beer have opened many doors for me, my business in craft beer does not actually begin with my beloved Pure Brews America! In fact, my love for this industry has shaped most of my academic and professional career. I studied at Michigan State University and became further cultured in beer, well, some other things too. During my undergraduate studies, I completed my thesis on Founders Brewing Co. and their export process, which afforded me the opportunity of exploring and meeting with a multitude
of other Michigan breweries. Shortly thereafter, I founded Brew Export with the mission of sharing American craft beer with the world and helping everyone on Earth redefine what “good beer” means. Craft beer is my life and my passion, and nothing gives me greater joy than being able to share my love for Michigan beer on Pure Brews America!"
