Stories from a Bar #33, Erik Budrakey of True Brew Magazine
In the first episode of Stories From A Bar recorded on location since March, Erik Budrakey joins me at Unified Beerworks in Malta, NY to talk about his life, the craft beer business, and True Brew Magazine. Budrakey is the co-creator and content manager of True Brew Magazine and has spent the better part of 25 years involved in the craft beer business.
Budrakey toyed around with home brewing while in college but it wasn’t until a life changing road trip with some friends that led him to develop a great appreciation for it. “After we left, I think I did realize it was going to be a life changing journey, but I didn’t realize it was going to be a beer journey” says Budrakey. His adventures not only took him around the U.S.A. but around the world to study all kinds of beer styles and even become a Certified Cicerone (Beer Nerd).
