Meagan Greenwood has a machine over the past few years getting her beer out to the masses, and spreading the good word (in many ways). Its crazy to think I had her on the show 2 years ago (as you’ll hear….LITERALLY 2 years ago) and I'm so stoked she now has Greenwood Brewing Company open right downtown. And it couldn’t be any more perfect. Meagan is an amazing human, her beer is kick ass and she has one of the best spots in the state for sure. Enjoy the show!
