Beer Learnin'

Every time I listen, I learn something new about beer or the process of brewing. Doug seems like a nice guy and Tony, although shy, always gives me a laugh. And the introduction is great!

A great listen for home brewing enthusiasts

I received one of Tony's books as a gift and really enjoyed it, and that led me to this podcast. Glad I found it!
