This week… Pontoon Brewing.  We sit down with Owner and CEO Sean Ø’Keefe at the Pontoon taproom in Sandy Springs to chat about their brewery and capabilities, new beers in the pipeline, being a proud bro, otter eggs, and shotgunning beers.

Next Week… Variant Brewing.  Roswell, so hot right now.  We’ll chat with Variant’s Owner and Brewmaster Matt Curling, we’ll be taping live in their taproom Thursday at 6:00 PM.  Come join us.

Pontoon Brewing
Pontoon Brewing’s Sean O’Keefe tells us it’s a scientific fact that otters hatch from moon eggs.  To be honest, we’ve never seen an otter born… err, hatched, so we’ll have to take his word for it.
