You know the deal by now, Weezie’s 12 is a short form podcast by Cheers Charlotte host Jay Weezie.  Jay asks the same 12 questions to Industry, Influencers and Amateurs in the food and beverage world. Some questions are simple and some are little more thought provoking.  They all are in good fun to give you another side of the people that serve you beer, cook your food, or you follow on Instagram.

In between full length episodes of Cheers Charlotte you’ll get these 10-20 minute episodes of Weezies’s 12.  Each week is a different person sometimes suggested by a previous guest of the show, but always someone interesting and creative.

Season 2 is here!  First up is Jordan Boinest of White Labs in Asheville.  Jordan has been in the beer game for quite awhile.  First working at Beech Mountain Brewing then opening Newgrass Brewing in Shelby she has since moved on to sell the most important ingredient in beer.  Yeast!

For season 2 Weezie switched out 2 of the questions and also allows the guest to ask one of the questions back to him at the end of the interview.
