Blind Pig Confessions's Podcast

Aug 24, 2018

Cowboy and Dougy Fresh spent a wonderful afternoon in Traverse City, Michigan with their new comrades at The Workshop Brewery.  Founder Pete Kirkwood and his Minister of Propaganda, Jessica Rohloff sat and drank with the Pigs and talked shop, beer shop 101. 

FOH Manager and bartender Greg Manley kept the afternoon powered and the table full of fresh brews as Pete gives some of finer details of their many beautifully delectable suds. 

Love and suds continuously flow through marvelous establishment from the moment you walk through the front door.  You can feel the passion for the mission from the founder, the workers, as well as the patrons, and you can taste the passion in every beer. 

A must stop whenever you’re in the Cherry Capital.  Take time to stop and smell the yeast.

Have a few brews and then wander back through the hall to the adjoining Mammoth Distilling for some incredible Michigan craft spirits (don’t forget to try the Rye!).  And a big thanks to Stuart Hickman for setting us up and introducing us to Mammoth.  We will be back!

Shout outs in this week’s episode include:  Right Brain Brewery;  Clam Lake Brewery;  Back Step Brewing Company;  Danny Boy Beer Works;  Rare Bird Brewpub;  Scott Pierson and The Coin Slot;  and Shawneecraft Brewing Company

Special thanks to Cyrus Youngman and the Kingfishers for the use of their tune Life Won’t Wait to end tonight’s episode.
