Jason Jones, Hopspot Beer Tours
Eric Jackson, uncapeverything.com
Joel Franklin, Scofflaw Brewing Co

We start out by learning a little bit about Jason Jones and Eric Jackson. Then we get into their experience with craft beer and indie brewers as African American's. From tasting rooms to marketing to the brewing staff, there is a tremendous amount of opportunity to improve as a community. Joel Franklin joined us halfway through (37:20) and brought insights from the brewing floor.
