Welcome to the humbler side of craft beer. Chris and DJ are two guys with a passion for craft beer, the companies that make it, and people that drink it. Join in their journey as they explore the growing southeastern craft beer industry and culture.
Supporting Local at a Distance
While the rest of the world is trying to figure out a global pandemic, Chris & D.J. are trying to figure out a problem closer to home: How to support the local breweries, their employees, and foodservice folks in their area.
