“Farm-to-table,” “seasonal ingredients” and “hyper-local.” These aren’t the phrases usually associated with beer. 

Unless you are talking about Scratch Beer in Ava, Illinois. 

The off-the-beaten-path brewery is one of the pioneers of the farmed and foraged beer movements. These beers are designed to evoke a sense of terroir and embody the land by using everything from chanterelle mushrooms to tree bark harvested on or around the property. 

One of its founders, Marika Josephson, joins us today to talk about how this one-of-a-kind brewery came to be.
