Episode 98 – Bitterly Successful in NYC

One of the greatest joys of HomeBrewCon is getting a chance to talk to interesting people and then get to see them recognized for what their doing. In this episode Drew sits down in conversation with Douglas Amport and John LaPolla – founders of New York City's only homebrew shop – Bitter & Esters. We talk about the challenges and joys of podcasting and running a homebrew shop. A day later, they won as the AHA's Homebrew Shop of the Year!
