Welcome to episode 53 of the Drink My Brewcast show. We bring in Phil Scott who is the assistant brewer to our friend Dave Hale over at North Peak Brewing Company in Traverse City. Phil won the 2013 Drink My Brewcast Microbrew Beer Bracket and so we thought it was a good idea to bring him in studio to talk about the upcoming beer bracket which has been increased from 16 teams to 32.
You can download the beer bracket at www.drinkmybrewcast.com
We've got a hole bunch of new features to be added to the Drink My Brewcast show. We are adding some new segments and theme songs, cutting down the weekly show into two separate episodes. We kick off our new venture with a great interview with Brian Tennis and Joel Mulder from the Michigan Hop Alliance. They gave us an education on the business of Hops and why the Michigan hop business is on the rise! We encourage you to check out their website at www.michiganhopalliance.com.
We were invited to come out and get some interviews at the Winter Microbrew and Music Festival's Brewers Dinner run by Katrina Jenkins and hosted by Fred Bueltmann co-owner of New Holland Brewing Company and auther of the "Beervangelist's Guide to the Galaxy: A Philosophy of Food & Drink.
We got a lot of great interviews from this night. It was recorded on Friday February 7th at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Show notes will be up very soon and we will have a detailed list of all the interviews.
Well it's time to celebrate. We made it to 50! that's a big deal considering all we have been through in the last year. We really appreciate the support of our listeners and fans. We took the day to do something some of us have never gotten the chance to do. Head to Bellaire and visit The Short's Brewing Company Brew Pub. Before we got to Bellaire we swung over to Elk Rapids to check out the productions facility where we got a chance to sit down with Matt Gacioch, Pauline Knighton, and Tyler Glaze who you can here on the new podcast...Short's Cast!
Road trips get out of hand especially when it's just after Shauny's Birthday.
Our Brew for the Crew is the Minds Eye IPA from Petoskey Brewing Company. You can find Petoskey Brewing Company beers at The Beverage Company in Traverse City.
Thanks for listening good people!

We cover lots in episode 44 for our segments return and we finally have a trivia winner from our question two weeks ago. Which means we have a new trivia question. We hope you all have a great holiday and give us a listen if you have some downtime.
That is correct, we are getting in the holiday spirit over here, so we thought we would bring in our good friends Mikey Anderson and Andy Largent. You know them from our first home brew episode and they are going to be adding a new segment to Drink My Brewcast called "Andy and Mikey's Beer Gear Review".
We get technical and basic with the guys and break down what is a solid gift for the beer advocate in your family. Bob, Shaun, and Carly also add their own gift guides as well for the everyday beer drinker.
It's a show packed full of idea's you can use for the holidays and we hope you check it out.
Updates, links, and shownotes will be up on Thursday.
