Great idea and execution
Love the podcast. I really enjoy hearing stories like this.
Talking beer and the struggles of starting a business.
They say every homebrewer wants to open a brewery and we can live vicariously through these interviews.
Perfect for beer geeks
I love hearing about what went into forming my favorite breweries. The stories vary widely from guest to guest and the host does a great job keeping show on track.
Informative and interesting, nice to hear the stories and learn about the beers each brewery has.
