Their anniversary celebration (Oct 20-Oct 24) will highlight some of the many reasons: great collab beers, fun yet safe events and raffles for local charities. In this episode I sit down with Justin to talk about our beer-sheltered lives growing up in Ohio and how their business model has helped to streamline their contribution to our amazing Arizona beer community. Enjoy!

Growing up in a steel city myself I can appreciate the grit it takes to survive in that world. In fact my love for craft beer as a whole comes from its core foundation: hard work and creativity. Clarkdale, and now its newest business, Smeltertown Brewery, are build on that foundation as well. Becky and Craig Backus are the longtime Clarkdale residents who are behind the brewery and its accompanying hotel. A beautiful spot with beers that kick just as impressive from head brewer Tim Godin make this the spot to hit up ASAP!
