Episode 2 – The Rise of the Robots

In Episode 2 – Denny and Drew talk about the rise of the brewing robots and what they mean for us homebrewers. Are our “jobs” about to be farmed out to a microchip that can make better beer than we can before we've have our morning coffee? Is it really still brewing if a computer is doing all the watching? Also, what does it mean to be Craft Beer?
