To paraphrase Hunter S. Thompson.... once you get locked into a serious beer collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
The Tap Takeover Podcast is a beer podcast focused on promoting craft breweries in the Midwest. Featuring interviews with the brewers themselves, and all industries that support microbreweries. Including tastings of exclusive recipes, and traditional styles. Cheers! ??
