Happy New Year! It’s the time of year—after the indulgences of the holidays—when a lot of people try to eat healthier and drink less. This week, we’re exploring options for those of you participating in Dry January. . .but truth be told, these drinks are delicious all year long. These are drinks for anytime and for anyone who doesn’t drink, or who wants to take a break. As our guest Julia Bainbridge says, “There’s never been a better time to be a non-drinker.” In this episode, we talk to the joy-filled local juice maker delivering wellness to Hartford and beyond, Josephine Joiner, owner of Juicy J. Juice Bar. And you’ll hear a conversation with John Walker, head brewer at Athletic Brewing Company, one of the first nonalcoholic breweries in the country—and the only nonalcoholic brewery in Connecticut.
Robyn Doyon-Aitken and Catie Talarski produced this show.
