Thank you for joining us on the We Like Drinking podcast

The We Like Drinking podcast is a weekly podcast devoted to the love of all things adult beverages. With a focus on wine and craft beer, we sprinkle in a dash of spirits whenever we can. We take a light hearted approach to the alcohol world, but also layer in plenty of education as well. Most weeks we welcome an industry guest to the show to discuss what they are working on, but also include them in everything we are discussing that week. Our guests range from bloggers, to authors, winemakers to brewers, and a few celebrites now and then, ok, like 2, but still. Listen to the We Like Drinking podcast every Friday and never drink alone.

If there is a true “guru” on the show it is our brewer, John. He has been brewing beer longer than most of you reading this have been alive. John is currently working as a brewer for Lizard Tail brewing in Albuqurque, NM. When John is not brewing or drinking beer you can find him in the wild searching for lizards and snakes to expand his knowledge as a herpetologist. John lives in New Mexico with his lovely life and is now a proud grandpa. Look for John on Instagram at @BrewHerper
