At Home In Bloomington

Judge me if you will, but I love clothes. Not necessarily fashion but clothes. I like expressing myself by what I wear and I've never been able to hold down a job where I had to wear a uniform. I just can't dress like everyone else! And I suspect that there are lots of you out there just like me. That's why I enjoyed this episode so much. A local business (my jam) that is about clothes and style (my double jam) and that has a dog hanging out in the shop every day so you can pet and shop (my triple jam). They might even serve you a bourbon or scotch while shopping (dare I say, my quadruple jam ..read more

This is episode is epic. Is it because supertaster Deb (see episode 2) becomes a beer drinker or because of the dream our guest made a reality (probably the latter, but still, you should listen to find out)? Seven years of dreaming, persistence against all odds and nine long months of demolition are what brought our guest to realizing his dream of owning and operating his own brewery. For Kurtis Cummings, Founder and President of Switchyard Brewing, he claims his entrepreneurial spirit started back in elementary school when he would collect pebbles from the playground, polish them in his rock ..read more
