Tap the Craft Episode 117: Craft Beer Shutdown

In Episode 117 we find out what the deal is with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and whether or not the government shutdown is really wrecking the craft beer industry. John joins us and provides an update on Trek Brewing and some insight on his experiences with the Tax and Trade Bureau. Plus we check out our 2018 Year In Beer check-in summary from Untappd. So grab a beer and enjoy the show!

We are proud to partner with B Cups, supplier of Outdoor Craft Beer Cups, for partnering up with us and I encourage our listeners to go visit their site at bcups.net or fermentedreality.com and check out the world’s first full line of style-specific plastic beer cups for people on the go. Whether hanging out on the beach or by the pool, or hiking the wilderness, or even enjoying some boating, B Cups are great for any place you can’t use standard glassware.
