We head up to Muncie, IN to imbibe with the guys from The Guardian Brewing Company. We learn about what drove Jason Phillips to open the brewery, why Sean Fickle decided to leave his post as head brewer of Fountain Square Brewing Co. to be the head brewer for The Guardian, and a lot about the beer they make. Oh, and we get to hear why Sean hates the New England IPA trend...he's obviously part of the Fountain Square brewing family.

With a recent change in ownership, Fountain Square Brewery is hitting the refresh button on their branding. We sit down with their President Brad Smith and head brewer Mike Grap to discuss the rebranding, what fears accompany a rebranding, and what's on the horizon for the brewery. And don't worry, none of the beloved beers will be rebranded, but be on the lookout for a few surprises (barrel aged beer anyone?) in the near future!
