About this Episode

Spoon sits down with craft beer writer and acclaimed author and winner of the 2008 Michael Jackson Beer Journalism Award winner Lew Bryson to discuss the recent state of craft beer in Philadelphia after 3 establishments were raided, the Johnstown Flood Tax and a solution to this mess the PLCB has created.

We ask all Pennsylvania residents to contact their legislators and urge them to put an end to the archaic laws governing beer in PA!

We close out with giving you a chance to win some great prizes and interview cellerman Hart Johnson for Sharp Edge, the premiere Belgian beer bar of America
