Well we made it through the first year. There was a lot of learning on the job this year. We had equipment issues, and scheduling difficulties, but to balance that, we did live shows at both B Nektar Taproom and the Motor City Steam Con. We’ve gotten to talk about a bunch of nerdy topics and reviewed a lot of alcohol. Hopefully we will be able to do this crazy thing for many more years. Thank you to our guests over the last year and a huge thanks to the listeners, you make what we do worth it and we can’t thank you enough for the support. Slainte!
