This week was the last onsite interview in the history of Pint Talking and got to hang out with Paoloa Vabuena and John Hill from Pulpo Brewing Co. in Willoughby Ohio. Pulpo is the first Latina women owned brewery in Ohio. They are associated with Barroco arepa bar and Hola Tacos. Paola and John talked to me about navigating the waters of tumultuous craft beer market in 2023 as well as increasing production to satisfy their needs of the other locations. During the interview we touched on potential future plans and what they feel is currently the best situation for Pulpo.
