(NSFW) This episode finds The Hoppy Craftsmen down a man. Nate sits this episode out, but lo and behold our favorite, stalker/blogger/kidnapee Arrwoooo (a.k.a. Ed Gomez) fills in with a guest appearance. Join us as we sit down and talk with Matt Trethewey one of the owner/founders of The Beer Research Institute. Had an absolute blast talking with Matt about B.R.I.’s humble beginnings and what it takes to make it in the Phoenix East Valley. Matt talks punk and rap influenced branding, B.R.I.’s upcoming anniversary releases and festivities, the brewery’s tenets of creativity, quality and consistency, the expectation for all employees to piss excellence, but not without also creating a culture of fun along the way. As an added bonus, we present Matt with our first award. Make sure to listen and find out what for.

The assorted sounds of three ageing humans hitting things in a studio for five days. Beautifully nasty and pretty vile at times but ultimately gorgeous. Enjoy!
