By now, pretty much anyone who knows Arizona beer knows Arizona Wilderness. They are so well known, in fact, that many Arizona Cardinals have stopped by not only to enjoy some beers, but brew some, too. Jared Veldheer, who played for the Cardinals from 2014 to 2017, collaborated with Wilderness on Tropical Storm back in 2015 and now on Double Tropical Storm.

In this episode, we sit down with Jared as well as Wilderness' Jon Buford at the DTPHX location to talk about how a professional athlete got into brewing while delving into how Tropical Storm originally came to be.

We tend to fall into "whats new" mode with beer these days. There are great beers popping up everywhere. However, we often forget about the OG's, the people who have paved the way for this booming industry. And you know what? They are still making great beers AND innovating as well. Dragoon has been a staple of the Arizona beer scene since 2011 and have never stopped making awesome beer. In this episode we sit down with the guys behind this great Arizona brewery to hear their story. Enjoy!
