Better on Draft 224 - Short's Brewing Company w/ Scott Newman-Bale

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!

MICHIGAN SERIES: Having brought in guests from all over the country this past year, we wanted to still be true to our roots, so we have began the Michigan Series. A series of Michigan Brewery owners, employees, brewers, and sales reps, talking about what is happening here in the state and what is happening at their facilities. Join us on this continuing series throughout the rest of the month of December!

SHOW INFO: The Godfather of mead himself, Ken Schramm joins us to get an inside scoop on meadmaking.  We learn about some upcoming projects and dive deep into the personal touch.  We learn the reason why he doesn't have too many bad products in public, the way he treats his staff to create such a low turnover, and we talk a little bit about fishing, his new orchard, and what comes next for a brick and mortar for Schramms.  A must listen to any fan of his mead which I'd guess would be anyone who has had it!
