Great Rep for AZ Beer!

Really enjoy this podcast - as someone who loves AZ, loves beer and loves podcasts. Appreciate the interviews with local operations and learning about new openings etc. As a homebrewer, it’s fun to learn about other people and their processes - whether it’s the Beer 101 features, or discussions of all the work that went into developing and opening a new brewery or tap room. Also really enjoy hearing my guy, Marcus, get some love in the beer reviews! It’s all kept pretty casual which makes it an easy listen. Seems to get better all the time - keep it up!
