The first episode of 2019 features Kyle Gray from Casual Animal Brewing Company in the Crossroads District of KC. Stop in for a delicious beer (or ten) before or after any event downtown or make the brewery your event for the day. Kyle and his wife, Lara opened the taproom just shy of a year ago. I wish them the best of luck moving forward. As I am working my way into improving this podcast, I want to thank Kyle for letting me come in on a day they were closed and pouring me some beer to try while interviewing. My ancient GoPro died mid interview and we had to improvise on the video side. Find it on YouTube. This is actually episode 7. I misspoke in the interview stating it was number 6.

Happy Halloween! The sixth episode features The Big Rip Brewing Company in North Kansas City. I sit down with Head Brewer, Bri Burrows as she talks me through a flight of beers named after horror movie characters and explains the process for each brew. It was accidental to drop in after a sold out Halloween Party. I purchased a growler of the Sweet Tater Ale to take home with me to enjoy (in moderation) while I make my Pumpkin Ale.
