On Today’s Show:

We welcome one of our favorite people in the homebrewing community, Fred Coleman, to the show. Fred, also known as @BlindBrewGuy on Instagram, is an avid brewer who splits his time between Arizona and Minnesota. He also happens to be visually impaired but that doesn’t stop him from brewing up delicious batches of homebrewed beer and we had a blast talking with him. I have felt bad for excluding Todd and James on these homebrewer showcase episodes so you’ll notice that it was a nice addition having them on with our special guest.

FYI – Todd still has some used HERMS units he is selling (click here to learn more, if interested: ), so check those out at the link above.

We want to hear from you!
