Ep. 11: We Are Bringing Back Micro

In episode 11, Ed Grohl, Easy Pretzel, and Bearcat welcome back, friend of the show, Jason Notte. We took a deep dive into the Brewers Association’s new Independent certification, picked apart AB Inbev’s The High End video response, branched off into the craft beer black market, and Jason has some tough love for Pittsburgh’s Craft Beer Week.

Be sure to follow Jason’s very good Twitter account (@Notteham) and read his fantastic work for Marketplace.com and TheStreet.com.
