Great Podcasts!

Denny & Drew do a great job, so informative, fun and easy to digest. Thanks for all the great content!

Not as geeky as you might fear

I’ve listed to Drew and Denny on some other podcasts in the past and worried that, if left to their own devices, they would be way too geeky for me. I consider myself a beer geek… but this show has just the right mix of practicality and geekiness! The format is great and the guys really keep the show moving. Thanks for the great work! Sorry it took me so long to finally listen to a show, but now I have a lot of back episodes to keep me busy!
