We are joined by her co-owner, husband and the head brewer at Zed's, Geoff Bado. They are absolutely one of the nicest couples we have come across in the brewing industry.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a fly on the wall when we get together to record without a guest or a topic for that matter? If you have, this episode is for you. We had no guest so we met up to bs and bust on each other. Actually Amy had some of us in tears and even one member snorted. Lol. Listen to how and where Amy eats Cheetos. Please don't let the image of that get to you.
Make sure that you stop out to see us if you can at the Uno in Maple Shade at 6 pm on October 4th.

This is a very special episode which features 2 different interviews with Brotherton Brewing. Way back when we started our podcast, we visited the brewhouse and sat down and talked to Keith and Ryan. Our first attempt at an on location taping did not go so well. Frankly, we screwed it up and decided not to release it.
Then came AC Beer Fest, where our audio for that event wasn't so great either. We decided to just have the old episode cleaned up and put it with the interview we did Keith at AC Beer Fest. You're getting a double dose of Brotherton in this episode so we hope you enjoy!
