On Today’s Show:

It’s been a while so I am super stoked to welcome back Homebrew Supply’s Director of Operations, Mr. Ladik Joe Ermis! Joe is an incredibly under-utilized resource, mainly because he’s SO BUSY managing the day-to-day production operations for Kegconnection LLC. I begged him for an hour of his time and, lucky for all of us, he was able to join me this week and tackle your questions.

We want to hear from you!
