You love Beer and we love you. Max went out of his way to physically drag Chris Powers (Owner and Muse Master of Trophy Brewing Co) & Adam Eckhardt (Owner and Creative Crusader of Crank Arm Brewing) into the studio to share the news about their brews.
This episode is frothing with information. We chat about what it's like to win an award from the Great American Beer Festival. How to scale & schedule your barrel system. Why these guys beers (and Pizza btw) are so damn tasty.
We also learn that when it comes to buds and brews in Raleigh, it's not competition & it's not cooperation, it's coopetition. Learn what a Rickshaw bar is and finally we serve up some breaking news that Ale's are out and Lagers are in!
Grab a cold one and listen up!
