Great hosts

These guys are great hosts and deserve the praise for providing me with an ever expanding list of beers to try. All the hosts equally share the mic and have some really good news for the beer world. Well worth a listen!!!

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.
