Better on Draft 224 - Short's Brewing Company

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!

Recent Episodes
SHOW INFO: Joe sits down for an hour long talk, discussing the state of the brewery during COVID and the nasty comments his staff has been recieving from guests unhappy about mask mandates and rules. We ask him to recap his feelings of the industry from 2011 and his goal of keeping the power of smallness even though his staff has gone from 30 to over 150. We bring suggestions about new beer delivery systems including by bungee jumping and growth into bigger markets for a brewhouse. If you're looking for how Joe got into the industry, this show isn't for you. We dig deep this episode to get to the bread and butter that is Short's Brewing.

PODCAST UPDATE: Thank you everyone for listening and joining us on this 5+ year journey.  Our show sure has changed since our very first day and this past year it's gone through many more.  This has allowed us to focus on out-of-state breweries, but we know where we started and how we got to the show.  Starting in 2021 on this feed we will start The Michigan Sessions, which will focus on Michigan breweries both big and small, the ones who got us to where we are today!

SHOW INFO: Recorded live at Griffin Claw Clubhouse in Rochester Hills Michigan, Ian who was back on episode 89 joins us to talk about what he has been up to since the closing of Cellarmen's, he gives advice to young cider makers who want to make cider at home, his moves of making a Baja Blast inspired seltzer, and more.  A wealth of knowledge witha short time, studying what Ian has done in his career will help any cider and mead maker become a better one!
