About Podcast

FoodBrews chronicles the adventures of Markus Wolf and David Mitroff as they investigate, learn, eat, drink and laugh their way across the globe. From Michelin star chefs to at home brewers, each episode begins by interviewing cutting edge and industry leading trend setters, then moves into to David and Markus fully exploring (including eating and drinking) their way to a final debate about the future of this trend. This authentic adventure is always entertaining, and we want to share it with you.

Why the name “FoodBrews”?

FoodBrews came about because Markus and David met at one of the food tech events that David host. At the event, they were talking about what they both like, and they realized they both like podcasts, as well as “food and brews,” or alcohol—and they thought: why not make a podcast about food and alcohol?
