MadTree Brewing looks to give back as they celebrate 7 years

This week we head to Ohio to chat with MadTree Brewing's Trevor Self.  Trevor has worn a lot of hats during his time with the brewery.  He started out like many others, volunteering his time to help can delicious beers.  This eventually let to a real, paid position and finally into a QA role where he helped transition MadTree to their fancy new (and much larger) brewhouse.

Today, Trevor is Assistant Brand Manager, spreading the word about MadTree mission and beers.  We find out about the plans for their 7th anniversary, their recent commitment to 1% for the Planet, the brew scene in Ohio, and lots of hot coffee beer talk.

In the news Brian shares another story about how Big Beer just can't catch a break, and the fact that there are laws when you're drinking Claws.  We also dive into Pontoon Brewing's Rainbow Smiggles again, and I continue my exploration of NA Beers with a trio from Bravus.
