Local, Fresh, Sustainable – 5 Seasons Brewing

We continue our quest for local Southerners that are doing things Local, Fresh, and Sustainable and have stumbled upon a marriage of food and brew.  Meet Crawford Moran, the Brewmaster at 5 Seasons Brewing, and a Southerner with a passion for bringing seasonality and sustainability to the micro-brewing industry. We sat down and talked about what makes 5 Seasons so unique including its symbiotic relationship to the farmers with its constantly changing menus, and the constantly rotating styles of beers that will keep your palates busy for years to come.  Throw out all your old notions of what a brew pub is.  The dynamic team of Crawford Moran’s brewing and the fresh, local, seasonal cooking provided by Chef David Larkworthy combine to pay great respect to the wonderful ingredients they are both working with.  A wonderful local Southern discovery that can’t be missed.  Stay Hungry Y’all!
