*** MAGIC VALLEY BREWING ***
Had a meeting with the Buhl P&Z on Wednesday: 
"Awesome day today! We received a unanimous "in favor" vote from the P&Z board.  None of the local churches voiced any opposition. We even had a lady from the Methodist Church come out in support!  Thanks again to our great community for all the support, we printed out the comments... all 37 pages... and gave them to the board."
The website will be up soon, and a Kickstarter campaign will be launching along with "BEER Bucks" vouchers to be used once the brewery opens, to help generate funding upfront! 
"We are also in the process of rolling out our Beer Bucks supporter program where you can buy vouchers in blocks of $250, $500 and $1000 redeemable for anything MVB sells; Beer, food, T shirts etc. If you know of anyone that would be interested please have them contact me at judy@magicvalleybrewing.com for more information."

*** BOISE BREW MINUTE ***
Boise Brew Minute (episode 50) - Tom at Post Doc Brewing in Redmond, WA talks to us about yeast and the influence it has on the taste of beer. We discuss how different yeast and other microbes add to the flavor complexity but can also produce off-flavors. One example of beer that highlights the yeast's influence is Post Doc's Belgium Rye ale. Listen Here
