On each episode of Pints & Politics, we combine two of America’s favorite past times…beer and politics. Host Dan Parsons, a public relations expert and political advisor with a love for local food and craft beer, is joined by a craft beer connoisseur and a purveyor of politics. Together, they bring conversation and a collaborative spirit back to politics. Sure it's fun and entertaining, but Pints & Politics is not afraid to tackle the toughest issues of the day - and somehow doing it with beer leaves a good taste in everyone’s mouth. Pull up a bar stool and join us!
