We talk what to expect when you're expecting (to open a brewery), Rob's history in the restaurant world, Peter's brewing history, and the beers that made them the men they are today. Plus! The biggest BBQ this side of the Mississipp', appreciating the classics while still pushing beer forward, and how art influences artists. All this and more, on Episode 73 of Barley & Me! Enjoy!
