Currently there are around 100 breweries in Arizona. In this series we'll travel throughout the state to get an idea of where all of the breweries are in a given region of the state. In this episode we jump around the north to some of my favorite breweries of all. What I love about much of Northern Arizona is its contrast to the low desert I normally experience here in Phoenix where I live. Enjoy this northern AZ beer adventure!

Welcome back to the 4th episode in this miniseries we did with the great guys over at @inkledeux training to get our Certified Beer Server designation by @cicerone.For all the beer "review" experts out there this episode is for you. Properly evaluating and grading beer is more than just an uneducated "I hate this". Its about knowing the difference between bad beer, beer you just don't like, and knowing what you don't like it. In this episode Brian Helton once again guides us as Liz, Brandon and I learn a thing or two.

In todays episode I get to talk with Steven Prager from the National Audubon Society for Arizona. Through a series of programs him and his team work tirelessly to bring awareness and assistance to some of the most at-risk aspects of our beautiful state, our water and our birds. One program is the Western Rivers Brewers Council which brings together like minded breweries to help protect the Colorado River Basin. Enjoy the show!

If you’re a long time listener you know Chef Brett Vibber.  AZ cuisine is lucky to have him. I talk with Brett while he’s out in the field and we discuss how his whole life has been centered around being prepared. This one is not so much about beer as it is a discussion on life and stuff. So grab a beer anyways and enjoy.
