We fully expect the fund drive to be over today and hope you will help us reach our $200,000 goal if you haven’t already joined or renewed your membership. In celebration of all our collective hard work and community spirit, we offer you this toast to local beer and brewing. Mike Bristol, founder of Bristol Brewing, was kind enough to walk us through his brewery, explain the process and wax philosophical about the merits of local beer culture. [Full Disclosure: Bristol Brewing underwrites with KRCC, The Big Something & Culture Cast]

Cheers!
