First some questions for Jordan Gleason
1. Opening a brewery, what were the biggest challenges you faced?
2. You guys are the new kids on the block when it comes to professional brewing, but you are no stranger to the hop and grain. Tell us a little bit about your brewing experience?
3. So, why Irvington? Was there a specific reason?
4. Do you have any special events coming up? Any plans for a big grand opening party?

Style of the week
Ask them what they have been brewing and give a style based on that
