NFL Week Eleven – Cheers, Detroit!

The NFL season is here and for this season we’ll be talking with a brewery and beer influencer from each city the Panthers are playing.
Following an abysmal loss to the Steelers the Panthers hope to bounce back against the Detroit Lions this week. We are getting you ready by talking with Mark Rieth owner of Detroit's largest brewery Atwater Brewing Company. Then our Beer Scene Know It All is Rex Halfpenny of the online and print publication Michigan Beer Guide. Big thanks to Kit at Trackside Crafts for hosting us last as he prepares for his two year anniversary this weekend.
Special thanks to our awesome sponsors: 2019 Queen City Brewers Festival, Dover Vineyards, Southern Strain Brewing and Sublmnl Design.
