Jim and Alex visit beautiful downtown Oconomowoc for our annual sit-down with the gracious organizers of the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI! Fred Swanson and Jason Walters describe the efforts of the Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild in ushering in the 35th Anniversary of everyone’s favorite Midwest beer extravaganza. We’ll be talking about the return of a number of popular events from years past, the introduction of the largest group of rookies ever invited to the festival, as well as a huge new change for the layout of the festival grounds for the 2022 event! This is our favorite day of the entire calendar year, and we hope to see everyone out in Olin-Turville Park on Aug 13th. Grab a pint of your favorite garlic beer, and join us for the fun. Cheers!
