Better on Draft | Craft Beer Podcast

Each and every Friday night, this Michigan based Craft Beer Podcast, hosted by Dan, Ken, Nick, Rob, and Wendy, sit down in their studio interviewing local and non local breweries, brewpubs, bar owners, and anyone that deals within the craft beer and alcohol industry and we begin to help tell their stories. Our second segment goes over the beer news both locally and nationally, a few times touching big global news like buyouts and mergers. Segment three always ends the show with a fun game to lighten the mood as they finish up their beers. You can actually join us live in the chat every Friday at 7pm EST at https://www.betterondraft.tv
