Better on Draft 204 - Hidden Gems

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/

Recent Episodes
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!

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.
