In this episode, I am joined by Mike Harting, co-owner and CEO of St. Petersburg, Florida’s 3 Daughters Brewing.
3 Daughters Brewing opened as one of St. Petersburg’s first craft breweries and after getting started and surviving the COVID pandemic, 3 Daughters has entered a growth phase that includes several satellite locations, like one in Fit2Run Running Store, one in popular tourist destination Clearwater Beach, and one in the St. Petersburg/ Clearwater Airport.
3 Daughters Brewing’s Orange IPA is also now available on Allegiant Airlines flights leaving from Florida airports.
Mike talks about this growth, as well as his background in the restaurant industry, and drops a few hints on where 3 Daughters Brewing will be growing to in the future.
My thanks to this episode’s sponsor – Rhythm and Brews by the Bay Beer Festival!
Florida Aquarium’s Brews by the Bay is back – and it’s being turned up a notch!
For years, The Florida Aquarium has hosted a successful beer, food and music festival called Brews by the Bay. After a two-year hiatus, the Aquarium is bringing back the event with a twist – a musical twist, that is. Newly named Rhythm and Brews by the Bay, the hit event will now incorporate a concert headlined by ‘90s alternative rock band, the Gin Blossoms, and opened with an acoustic set by Ken Block and Drew Copeland of the band Sister Hazel.
Known for popular songs like “Until I Fall Away”, “Found Out About You”, “Hey Jealousy”, “Follow You Down” and their five-time Platinum breakthrough album New Miserable Experience, the Gin Blossoms are a staple alt-rock icon you don’t want to miss!
Ken Block and Andrew Copeland, co-founders of the platinum-selling band Sister Hazel, hail from our very own Sunshine State. From the same genre, they are known for Billboard hits like “All For You” and “Change Your Mind.”
As with Brews by the Bay, guests can enjoy endless brews from local craft breweries as they take in all of the amazing views The Florida Aquarium has to offer – be it their 500,000-gallon Coral Reef gallery or the aerial view of Tampa Bay offered by their scenic rooftop terrace.
General admission tickets are available for $125.

In this episode, you will again hear a segment I am calling “The Six Pack.” These are six questions to conclude the episode, all related to the beer industry and what the guest has learned in the industry. The “six pack” gives a little more information about Joe and his beer beliefs.
