Better on Draft 238 - Michigan Hop Alliance w/ Mike Tanzini

The Michigan Hop Alliance is a large acreage farm up in Leelanau County which is one of the largest independent hop suppliers in the midwest.  Some of the top breweries in the country look to Michigan Hops for the way they're grown, so Mike comes on the show to talk about how reseliant the plant is, what people look for in hops when they're brewing, and what hops can tell us about the beer we're drinking before we even take our first sip.

Mike stays on for segment two as we talk about shower beers and the news of the week.  

We are live Fridays at 7pm EST on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/betterondraft. You can also watch us live on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/betterondraft, on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/bodpodcast, or on our website www.betterondraft.tv.

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!
