Tap the Craft Episode 131: Quit Work Brew Beer

In Episode 131 Kris is recording on location at Corporate Ladder Brewing with owner/brewer Blake Keppe. We discuss how he kicked the corporate ladder to the curb to pursue his passion of brewing beer and opening his own brewery. We also discuss an article on how a Washington State brewery shifted their strategy to prosper during this time where many regional breweries are struggling to survive. Plus a lot of random beer conversation. 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.
