I remember the day I first met the guys at Gizmo Brew Works. It was the Tuesday before the 2014 NC State Fair, and I'd just gotten rained out shooting an episode of the Yardcast. On the way home I figured I'd stop by and see if anyone was there, and sure enough I ran into head brewer Joe Walton. Joe's a great guy with a lot of energy and a passion for beer and his enthusiasm is shared by all the owners at the brewery. They were all very excited to do an interview with Das Beer Show.
Gizmo is a bit off the beaten path, but it's definitely worth seeking out. It's a totally laid back kind of place that feels almost like a frat house- and I mean that in a good way. There are some very nice brewpubs out there with oak-paneled walls and four TVs on every wall, but I'm totally drawn to the cable spool tables and the folding chairs around a cinder block fire pit. It feels like hanging out in your friend's garage which is exactly my kind of scene.
