Welcome to the Hops & Ledgers Podcast!

Hops & Ledgers is a series of quarterly podcast episodes that will focus on the business aspects of the craft beverage industry.  Presented in partnership with Wipfli CPAs and Consultants, each episode will cover a different area of interest to launch or grow your brewery.  Our intentions with the launch of this new podcast were to bring you much more positive content, but due to the severe impact on the craft beverage industry we felt that our first episode should address Coronavirus / Covid-19 and the resources available to help ease the strain on brewers.
