Orlando Brewing Is Organic – Audio


From the Food Nation Radio News Desk

Have you ever considered the ingredients of beer?

According to German Purity Law there are to be only four ingredients used in the production of beer:  water, hops, yeast and malted barley.  That’s it.  Only one brewery in the State of Florida uses organic ingredients without additives and crafts a beer that is served cold and fresh.  In fact, this brewery located far south of Vermont and far east of Colorado uses those ingredients and has been declared USDA Organic: Orlando Brewing.

Saved from the edge of bankruptcy and shutdown in 2004, Orlando Brewing is crafting and serving beer throughout Central Florida. It’s not your typical mass-produced commercial beer. When you read the label, you’ll find  no preservatives, no artificial flavors, no additional sweeteners, and no genetically modified ingredients!

This week, the Food Nation Radio Network spoke with John Cheek, President of Orlando Brewing about his beer.
