We are dubbing this episode “The Smartest Brewery in Charlotte” Why you ask? 

 Well, two reasons 1. Joe Vogelbacher is one of 19 Master Cicerones in the country.  So we discussed the exam and just how he prepared for it. Then the brewery itself uses A.I. in the production area provided by IBM to help them with production and efficiency.  Sugar Creek Brewery is doing big things there in the LoSo neighborhood. 

Plus, Melissa Bruno Johnston sits in to talk about Biere De Femme Presented by Pink Boots Society.  This year's festival takes place on March 21st at Unknown Brewery.  She fills us in on all the details.
