Burning Beard Brewing Co. on Beer for Breakfast

Keg N Bottle on Beer for Breakfast

Along with having Paul Segura from Karl Strauss Brewing in tow, having a great local business like Keg N Bottle come on board as the sponsor of Beer for Breakfast ahead of the feature's "re-boot" in April was absolutely huge, and a big shot in the arm for re-launching the segment.
