Carly and Brian Ogden met on a blind date that started going south quickly. Until beer saved the day. And along came beloved Attaboy Brewing.

Brandy sits down with Carly and Brian, founders of Attaboy Brewing in Frederick, MD. Carly and Brian recount that fateful night of their first date and share how they made it from the Bay Area to Maryland, and how Frederick became the unexpected surprise of a location for Attaboy. They share the story behind the name “Attaboy” and the shenanigans that come out of being in such close quarters with their neighbor brewers in Carroll Creek, Frederick.

Then, we have TONS of exciting things going down in the DC Beer world. Brandy, Jake, and Mike give the details for all the beer releases and events you need to know about, including events at Right Proper and new things coming down the pipe from Aslin Beer Company.
