Three Questions and a Pint: with Josh Dourte

Three Questions and a Pint

Everyone has a story and sometimes it’s best when shared over a beer. Three Questions and a
Pint is a brief interview featuring someone with an interesting story I’ve met at a brewery,
along with their review of the beer they were drinking during our conversation.

Josh Dourte

Josh Dourte is an architect in Carlisle who owns Roost Architecture. He is also the coordinator
of the local Green Drinks meetups at Ever Grain Brewing Company in Mechanicsburg, PA.
Green Drinks is an international, informal gathering of people from a variety of backgrounds
and with differing experiences interested in sharing ideas about environmental sustainability.
Green Drinks meets at 5:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month at Ever Grain and is open
to everyone.

Three Questions

What has surprised you most about Green Drinks?

The biggest surprise was when we first started the group. Quite a few people came to the meetups thinking we were about marijuana. [laughs]. But, hey, we welcome everyone but eventually they stopped coming when they found out that we’re about something else.

Is there anyone famous, or infamous, you’d like to show up at a Green Drinks meetup?

I’d love a visit from Matt Risinger from the Build Show. He’s a builder that really geeks out on
building science.

What’s a good news story about sustainability and the environment?

I think the good news is the growing awareness that climate change is real and having immediate effects. Also, we’re developing the technology and the means to, not only manage the impacts, but to help build a future that is much better for our children.

The Pint

Beer Review: Josh was drinking a pint of the Astro Cat which has a 7% ABV. He said: “It’s a Hazy IPA with a nicely balanced, subtly fruity hop profile. It’s a really easy sipper.”

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
