20 – Local Breweries

On this month’s episode of Shelf Understanding (where you can really learn to understand yourshelf), our host Danny talks with two (out of four) microbreweries local to Bloomington-Normal: White Oak Brewing and Destihl.

First, Bryan Ballard, co-founder of White Oak and co-host of the Craft Beer Digest podcast (link below), talks with Danny about the process of starting a brewery, and then Katy Tilley from Destihl talks about Destihl’s expansion efforts and distribution on a national scale.

We also talk briefly with Rachel Park, Adult Services Librarian, about our monthly “Books on Tap” book club which meets the first Monday of each month at the upper level of Lucca Grill.
