What happens when four hot sauce makers apply for a trademark? That's not the start of a bad joke but the topic of the latest Craft Hot Sauce podcast!
I interviewed several hot sauce makers, and we all spoke about our past experiences and lessons learned from registering a trademark for a hot sauce brand. Take a listen to this special episode of the Craft Hot Sauce podcast here.
I hate to say it, but next year is creeping up fast, and that means you should start planning to attend a Hot Sauce festival next year. One of our most popular posts is the World Calendar for the Hot Sauce and Chili Festivals, and we've updated it for at least the first half of 2019.
As many small-batch hot sauce makers ramp up work for the holidays, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has contributed, shared, and enjoyed our content over the past year. It's fun hearing their stories and trying their sauces.

I wanted your first note of the year to come from the hot sauce part of your life. Happy New Year! I hope you’re in good health and I’m counting on 2022 being a great year ahead.
I’m here to share a recent conversation I had, which is now on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast. Sometimes when I write this newsletter or market a hot sauce, it’s not my most natural channel of communication. The podcast has grown to be my favorite way of connecting with the wider craft hot sauce community and sharing those experiences with you.
Hope you’re enjoying your week as we ease into the winter months. In the past couple of newsletters I’ve described the hustle and bustle of the chili pepper harvest season. I feel like the mania that built up during summer peaked a couple weeks ago at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo.
The event was everything we hoped for with lots of engagement with hot sauce enthusiasts and makers. We gave out more samples of Craic Sauce over a two day period than ever before, receiving lots of positive feedback, especially with our Brian Boru’s Curry sauce.
