“Beer Notes,” a craft beer-oriented radio program produced by Shore Craft Beer in collaboration with Delmarva Public Radio, Salisbury University, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Tri-County Council for the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland, has been picked up for syndication by its first non-shore public radio station: KMXT in Kodiak, Alaska.
“Beer Notes” is a weekly, two-minute program that premiered Oct. 18, 2018, and airs every Thursday evening at 5:44 p.m. during “All Things Considered” on DPR. It is the first program to be syndicated by DPR, which allows it to be purchased by stations across the country through the Public Radio Exchange.
The program is designed to highlight the world-class beer of the Eastern Shore, and it functions, in part, to drive tourism to Delmarva and its unique array of breweries and craft beer-focused restaurants and hotels.
"We’re incredibly excited that ‘Beer Notes’ has been picked up by its first station outside of the shore, and in Alaska of all places,” said Ann McGinnis Hillyer, Shore Craft Beer CEO. “This is the first of many to come. We’re so happy to promote the craft beer industry as a whole, but especially the burgeoning craft beer community on Delmarva.”
The program is crafted to educate and entertain its listeners, covering the origins, science, styles, trends and development of craft beer culture. Recently aired episode topics have included the process of brewing gluten-free craft beer, the impact of global climate change on craft brewing and how to correctly pour beer, among many others.
“Beer Notes” is broadcast weekly on DPR, WSCL 89.5 and WSDL 90.7. To listen to the show online, go to www.BeerNotes.org and www.DelmarvaPublicRadio.net after it airs. Episodes are available for sponsorship.
