Gilly Woolfolk and Ryan Freeman of Dade City Brew House are the latest guests on the BeerWise Podcast

Welcome back to a new year and new season of the BeerWise Podcast.

It’s great to be back and bringing you new episodes of the podcast. Due to some unforeseen personal circumstances, the podcast ended 2023 somewhat abruptly. But, I’m back for 2024 and ready to roll with some new guests, new ideas, and new horizons.


Dade City Brew House BeerWise PodcastThis episode, I am joined by Gilly Woolfolk, the brewery manager and Ryan Freeman, head brewer of Dade City Brewhouse in Dade City, Florida.

I was tipped off to this brewery when passing through Dade City, a small town north of Tampa near Saint Leo University. Dade City has just over 7,600 residents and is mostly known for its kumquat groves. In fact, each year Dade City celebrates these little citrus fruits with a festival in their honor. Due to delays in opening time, DCBH happened to open during the 2021 kumquat festival. Thousands of people were right outside and wandered in for a beer. Gilly and Ryan discuss this and other ways that this small brewery has connected with its community as our talk goes on.
