Episode #200: An Interview w/ Prairie Artisan Ales

Episode 200! We had some fun with this one. Our first “studio audience” and our first guest in a while. People who’ve been watching for a while know that I’m a big fan of what Prairie Artisan Ales is doing. So I was VERY excited to get to sit down with Prairie’s founder and head brewer, Chase Healey.
