Coming in a few minutes late (we won't hold it against him) Scott Newman Bale joined us to talk about his first major job working for EA, coming to the states and meeting Joe, the cycle of liking and disliking beers, and we get a timer on when we can finally talk about the "Michigan Only, Michigan Forever" ordeal from 2016.  Scott also chats us up about his feelings on some of the new laws including counting tokens, and gives us a play by play what happened the first Psychedelic Cat Grass release.  

Segment 2 we discuss the news including the fact Jobbie Nooner still happened, we talk about if Michigan could ideally go to a 4am bar closing time, and we end talking about everyone's least favorite topics... Masks.

We may be in studio next week.  Stay tuned for updates!

We brought in Rep Pauline Wendzel of District 79 to chat about the slew of alcohol bills that are upcoming in the state legislature of Michigan, all tied together, and all reliant on each other.  She talks about her love of sours and sneaks in some of her favorite breweries not in her area!

We learned when John Mallett speaks, you listen because he's about to drop some knowledge on you.  We sat down with John for about an hour as we talked about everything from beer, brewery making, craft beer in the 90s, and we lay down the gauntlet challenge as he said he could get any brewery equipment out, and we inform him of former brewery Etouffee, the short lived Brew-Pub above the now permanently closed AMC Star Southfield where rumor has it the brewing equipment was put in before the wall, so it's still sitting there unused!

Segment 2 we talk about the Weathered Souls Brewing Black is Beautiful Collaboration.  You can look up who is doing the collaboration by going to https://blackisbeautiful.beer/ for more details

While our guest worked out some technical issues, we went live with just the hosts to talk about what is going on in Michigan as we prepare to re-open and enter the mixture of Phase 4/5 of our plan to flatten the curve.  We were then excited to have Jason Gladfelter, Director of Brewery Mediation Network join us form Denver to chat about his profession and what he does to help breweries succeed without getting pesky lawyers involved!  We chat about the different type of disputes and what to expect as we enter this new chapter into craft brewing and restaurants.  You can check them out at www.ovaloptions.com and contact them for a free consultation by calling or testing (720) 220-8683.

Segment 2 we discuss the news including if you'd hike 2200 miles for beer, and we talk about the Weathered Souls Brewing Black is Beautiful Collaboration.  So far we are aware that North Center Brewing and Brew Detroit are participating and we will update when we hear more Michigan breweries.

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 discuss how Michigan is one of five states that considers NA beer as regular beer, and we announce that Athletic Brewing will be in Michigan starting July 1st.

Segment 2 we discuss the news including (as promised) a lot of upcoming bills in Michigan to update the liquor laws (this is not all of them but many who rely on each other to pass). We also go over the top ten breweries in Michigan by 2019 barrels and look into the future! All of that and more!
