I talk with graphic designer and illustrator Casey Callahan over a NE Lager, a collaboration with Lowercase Brewing and Seattle Beer School ft. Casey's design! We chat about breweries giving credit to artists, how to navigate the beer industry as an artist, and "equal" treatment in the industry. Cheers!

Shawna's back on the pod! Recording live from Tucson, AZ
We're drinking various IPAs, I got myself a Standard Brewing hazy and Seapine double IPA. Because we just needed a little comfort in taking on some topics.
We get into Cicerone-level knowledge versus working at a brewery, do exact styles even exist, more covid drama and we get REAL about "diversity" in the workplace.
