Show Notes:

– Let’s start with Nile. I’m amazed with your background. You started homebrewing, studied brewing at UC Davis w Dr Michael Lewis, and then you went to work for a winery…back to brewing, while winemaking…What the hell?
– And now to Paul; You’re a UC Davis Alum as well. Did you 2 cross paths at Davis at all?
– Nile, How did you make the decision to do Mad Fritz?
– Paul when did you make the decision to branch out on your own?
– What was the vision for Ale Apothecary then? How has that initial vision played out?
– How do you feel about your beers becoming so sought after in the beer trading world and secondary market?
– Do you have any collaborations in mind, or any specific wild ale/mixed fermentation breweries that have been really rocking your socks lately that you would suggest to the fans of funk out here?
– How do you see technology and social media’s influence on the Craft Beer Movement?
– Speaking of social media, where can people find you on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram?
