Charlie Cole stops by to talk about Stone Brewing in California. A super interesting brewery with rocks & trees IN the brewery. A great pilgrimage for craft beer lovers and something completely unique.

We also talk about the opening of Adventurous Brewing's taproom and a new beer at Geneseo for a great cause called Brantley Brew.
