To talk more about the rise in craft beer in Florida, 90.7’s Matthew Peddie speaks to Brewers Ron Raike from Cask and Larder and Sky Conley from Hourglass Brewery, as well as craft beer bar owners Brent Hernandez from RedLight RedLight and Tracy Cehovan from Rogue pub.
Matthew Peddie also speaks with Eric Criss, President of the Beer Industry of Florida, about legislation in Tallahassee that looks to regulate how independent brewers distribute their beer.
