Summary (TLDR)

On today’s show, Dennis Trilles joins us from Craft Beer LB in Long Beach, CA. Dennis is the face behind the online hub of Long Beach’s craft beer scene, the organizer of the Craft Beer LB festival, and the graphic designer making local favorite LB Hats. And he does all that in his spare time. We chat about how he ended up in Long Beach and what drove him to create Craft Beer LB on behalf of all his favorite breweries.
