Host Ben Rice travels to Galt, CA, to talk to owner/brewer Ed Mason of River Rock Brewery, Galt's only brewery, and comedian Jason Sohm. We talk small-town living and expectations, bucking trends, and forging your own path, with or without support. We also discuss River Rock's upcoming third anniversary party (Saturday, June 8), their expansion over the years and their plans for the future, plus performing comedy in rural America vs. metropolitan areas (spoiler: River Rock will be hosting its first comedy show this Friday, May 31, at 7pm). Plus! Fishing nightmares, deaf dogs, and marital bliss. All this and more, on episode 101 of Barley & Me. Enjoy!Follow
