(Podcast) Working at a Sake Brewery

This week I talk to sake brewer Andrew, about how he got his job, what each day entails, and what its like to work for 6 months without a single day off! The passion Andrew has for sake is very clear, and it is always fun to talk to people doing the exact job they want to be doing. Enjoy!
