jojoastro ,

Really fun

This is a great podcast even if you are not a beer expert. I like the range of their topics. I just seem to want a beer during or after. LOL

Hoogie ,

Getting “Better” all the time!

I’ve been listening since 2016 & have loved the evolution of Michigan’s premier craft beer content. I’ve had the pleasure of being a guest on the show & always appreciated the candor & professionalism they’ve shown me and so many others in the industry. The industry has a lot of catching up to do, and should take a lesson from the thoughtful and inclusive conversations taking place on Better on Draft!

Cool beer game!

The beer game was really interesting! Great in depth conversation and detailed! Really looking forward to seeing how this podcast grows. Had no idea there was so much information on beer. Funny conversation and entertaining!
