John and Bill from Athletic Brewing take the time out of their busy day to chat about NA beers and how the industry is starting to change. We discuss how Bill was looking to remove the alcohol from his life but still wanted to enjoy a flavorful craft beer with his food, and John discusses the intricacies of making NA beer and the very few 'happy' accidents that sadly have to be diluted and poured.

We were promised a deep cleaned studio and were the first ones in it, so we trekked to Royal Oak where Ken, Rob, and Wendy chat about what is going on in the industry.  Ken makes his pleas to those who are wondering how they can help, and we talk about how we are all doing during this weird time in hospitality.  We bring in some local beers and toast to some of the great beer makers as they are working their asses off.  Want to help?  We have plenty of links at the bottom that could help whether you're a restaurant or someone with some extra money!  Listen to the show and crack open your favorite brew.  You've earned it.

It feels like it has been forever since we had the opportunity to sit down with John Leone from ROAK, and it was four years ago on Episode 22. No longer the new guy on the block as they enter their fifth year, we take the opportunity to catch up. He brings in new President of ROAK and Dark Horse (now named Michigan Brewers Union) and we get a historical look on his journey through craft beer at Dogfish Head, BrewDog USA, and Virtue Cider. John uses the opportunity to clear the air about some misconceptions happening with the merger of the two breweries, we discuss in short what happened with the Right Brain buyout, and Adam chats about what we should see upcoming for the two breweries in the next few years. We also try some amazing ROAK beer!

Liz and Dani of the Detroit chapter of Girls Pint Out join us to talk about female fans of craft beer, and we learn that all beer is girl beer! We go over some news including some Michigan government updates about token laws and distro, and we try to map out how many beers you would need to drink to be one of Rate Beer's top beer reviewers. We end the show bringing back our favorite Cameo game!

We go over the life and death of Black Lotus and the last five years with him as the head brewer, what changed, and why the sudden closing.  We learn where the hardware from Black Lotus went (hint, previous guest on Better on Draft), and Nick updates us on his other fermentation work he's been doing as he looks for a new home to brew.

We try his gin he made with Detroit City Distillery and we discuss a bit of news including the hype that is Pliny the Younger in bottles and we do a short dive into the black market of bottle reselling and what brewers feel about it.  Want to learn more about that conversation and what we referenced, check episode 149 with Drafting Table to see what they thought of their beer going for over $200 on the black market.  

Nick is one of our favorite guests to have on the show because he's very opinionated but cares about the industry that he loves and wants to get back to that, so if you're looking for a brewer that can brew you award winning beers, slide into his DMs on Instagram @NickTheBrewer

We may have managed to cram in the most gambling puns into this episode, but Loaded Dice is a gamble that Jef Smith is willing to take.  Setting up in Troy, MI this will be the first (not national chain) brewery the city has seen, and the city is more than excited for it to open up.  Jef talks about home brewing, working in the tech industry, and maxing out information to his guests with the Open Source concept.  Not only will you get to know the ingredients, but you'll know how the process went from start to finish as Jef has plans to not hide any of his work behind closed doors.  

We talk a bit of news to end the show and talk about the things we learned during our dry (or damp) January.  Pop that 40 and hop into this journey of the upcoming 2020 brewery, Loaded Dice.

The final part of our Dry January series, we bring in Eric, former owner of Ellison Brewery to talk about his adventure post brewing, Reputation Beverage, based out of Lansing/DeWitt, Eric has cultivated some of the best tasting NA drinks out there including Citra Hopped Kombucha, Rocky Road Nitro Coffee, and Sparkling Tea.  Many of his products are keto and paleo friendly with many of them coming in at 0 calories (with a whopping 200+mg of coffee).  After he leaves we go over the news, take some super bowl prop bets, and Ken gets on his soap box to talk about what he wants to see in 2020.

Part 2 of our 3 Part Dry January series brings us guests from all over the industry spectrum. We welcome Shannon Long of Brew Export to talk about the NA Trend in the USA and how Europe is already light years ahead of us. Jack of Zetouna Liquor discusses what is moving and what is not over at Zetouna Liquor. And Nick Britsky of Nick Drinks discusses how bars and the industry is moving to almost make it a necessity to have NA 'mocktails' and options for those who choose not to or are unable to drink, but still want to participate in the festivities. We discuss purchasing booze on an ABV/$$ format as well as discuss caloric intake and if these 'lo cal beers' are really healthy. That and more in this two hour extravaganza!

We came back into the studio with a goal, and that goal was not to drink, and after episode one of the year, we have kept that promise!  That doesn't mean we didn't dive into spirits, cocktails, and other near beers, so why not join us as did Jason, owner of Casamara Club, to talk about soda, cocktails, and alternatives to booze including zero proof Gin and Whiskey!

Our writer Ed just can't seem to get enough of the spotlight as he joins us for this episode of Better on Draft.  Ken brings the beer he would chase in studio as he found it while in Oakland California, and special guest Kristi comes in to ask us about some of our favorite hidden gems, and we go off the beaten path with some interesting topics and finally end the show asking how many breweries were there when Better on Draft Started until now (spoiler, both numbers are a lot).  You can find all those breweries at http://mibeermap.com/

As special guest hosts Ed and Wendy come on the show, Jack Zetouna of the (mentioned many times) Zetouna Liquor store in Rochester Hills comes on the show to share some bourbon, some Bourbon County, and his thoughts on the business of pour houses, chasing beers, and the industry as a whole.  We discuss how far you'd go to chase a beer and we break down the time to beer ratio.  

When Wendy invokes Toppling Goliath KBBS, Ken heads over to one of his favorite secondary market websites and plays a game of Price is Right with cost of some Toppling Goliath beers in the secondary market.

We brought back the guests from episode 100 to chat and give us some updates on the industry.  We talk about the issues with Michigan laws, the kind of party it would be if all the alcoholic guilds of the state got together and threw one big festival, and we discuss some serious solutions the problems we may forsee in the future.  

200 episodes ago I would not have imagined having the following we have today, the friends I've made along the way, and the support from both the fans and industry as we continue to lead as the best Friday night podcast about beer in Metro Detroit!  

So pop that 40 and join us for this very special (and long) episode.

We entered the Griffin Claw Brewery in Birmingham Michigan the night before their Flying Buffalo Release to get a sneak peak at all the flavors of Flying Buffalo.  We discuss the most recent fall beer festival, legislation in the state of Michigan, and drop some huge bombs about the future of Griffin Claw!  Thanks to Shannon from Brew Export for stopping by and being our fourth host as we knew that these beers were going to come in at a high ABV and best to be shared!
