MicroShiner is your guide to the world of craft spirits and the small batch lifestyle.

In this episode, we talk about the rise of Tito’s Vodka, one of the original micro-distilleries, and whether or not the marketplace needs transparency in labeling. We also discuss the latest efforts from the Brewers’ Association to create a separate identity for independent beer producers and how that fits 
into our vision of the small batch lifestyle.

We want to thank Gracie from Montgomery Distillery for so graciously crafting and introducing this week’s cocktails, the house Bloody Mary with Quicksilver Vodka and the Ace & Gary with Skadi Aquavit.

Hi @Berneice Bergstrom - we're in a back room at Montgomery Distillery in Missoula, Montana. They donate the space to us to do the webcast. The owner and staff at Montgomery are really into motorcycles. Check out our interview with owner Ryan Montgomery coming soon!

Hey @Tatum Treutel - no, this is the motorcycle garage at Montgomery Distillery. It is where we film the webcast, but we don't work there.
