Murfreesboro Part 2 (Mayday Brewery)

October 23rd, 2017

Chris & DJ continue their tour of Murfreesboro with a stop at Mayday Brewery. There they spend some time drinking beer and talking with the founder, Ozzy Nelson, and their head brewer, Kelsey Nelson.

Please note that this episode is a bit more colorful than most, so we have deemed it worthy of the "explicit" rating. That said, we hope you enjoy what was a fantastic conversation about brewery life and the passion behind it!

Murfreesboro Part 1 (Green Dragons & Liquid Art)

October 9th, 2017

Thanks to our sponsorship with TN Craft Beer Magazine, Chris & DJ traveled Murfreesboro, TN for an adventure so epic that we've decided to do three episodes on it! 

In this first part, the boys grab a few pints at the Green Dragon Pub & Brewery with Joe Minter, the proprietor and head brewer, and Ed Muranyi, the owner of Tennessee Craft Distributors. They talk about the challenges of opening a craft brewery in a traditionally non-craft beer town and about the challenges of starting a small distributorship from scratch. It's a wild ride, and it's just part one of the crazy adventures Chris & DJ had in Murfreesboro!
