Neat & Mixed from Hops & Spirits

We welcome in Darrin Wilson (3:05 mark), co-founder of Northwood Cider (Greater Cincinnati), for our Q&A and Road Trip Series. He talks about how Northwood Cider came to be, why they chose cider, how a student helped him find their location, being part of the community, their approach to cider, being experimental, places to visit nearby and more.

What's Pouring Kentucky (0:30 mark): Braxton's Garage Beer is now its own company while Bluegrass Distillers officially has broken ground on its new facility at the historic Elkwood Farm property in Midway. Against The Grain's Smokehouse is no more as its name is now the Against the Grain Public House and will serve burgers, hot dogs, wraps and more. ATG is also partnering with Monk's Road for the 2nd annual Burgoo Bash: a Pro-Am cook-off in March.
