Ep. 6 - the Beer Hikers

Updated: Aug 3

Brandon Fralic and Rachel Wood, authors of Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest

After visiting many local breweries and always having a love for the Pacific Northwest outdoors, Rachel Wood and Brandon Fralic, like many others, started to witness the two cultures that often go hand in hand. After dabbling in some local publications and in the online-blogosphere, they realized there was no local book that married their two interests. Soon enough, their book, Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest was in the works and the "beer hiker" was newly defined!

Rachel and Brandon join the podcast to talk about how they pair beer with hikes, the writing process, and preview their next book. You can find more about their next adventures at BeersAtTheBottom.com.
