The quartet talk about Steve and Jenaveve’s decision to return to the Midwest and call Northfield home for their brewery, what the process has been like to open the business and what the reception has been after about a month and a half of operation. Also, Brad the Beer Guy is in studio to dish about the India Pale Ale style, and Corey and Ira talk beers of the week and share some local news concerning breweries and, yes, even a cidery!
