Episode 160 Show Notes

Thank you for joining us for the We Like Drinking show episode 160. In this episode we’ll be discussing 5 barrels of happy, methel hexel chicken wire, and tonight you pour, I pour, we all repour with Tom Lutz. So crack open your beer, uncork that wine, and let’s get drinking.

  • Cheers my podcast drinking friends and welcome to happy hour 160!

  • Before we get sarted we’d love it if you’d take a moment to go rate and review our show on Apple Podcasts aka iTunes.

RePour Founder Tom Lutz:

Panel Introductions

  • Tonight we’re joined by our usual panel members, first we have our wine blogger, Jeff Solomon, next our commercial brewer, John Ruyak, and finally, I’m your host, Jeff Eckles.

  • Our guest tonight is originally from Northern WI, now living in Cedar Rapids, IA.  With a doctorate in chemistry and a career in product development, his career has been around innovation and bringing new products to market. He is now the founder and mad scientist behind RePour, a unique single use wine preservation cork that absorbs the oxygen right out of your opened bottle with science and witchcraft I assume. Please help us welcome, Tom Lutz.
