The 2019 Smells Like A Beer Fest at Mikerphone Brewing in Elk Grove, IL is becoming one of the best-run beer festivals of the spring/summer season, and boasts some major out of state brewing talent! Join the fellas from the Tap Takeover Podcast as we take our listeners along for the wonderful ride. We'll be discussing beer collaborations with "Mr. Collaboration" himself - Mike Pallen, owner of Mikerphone - as well as some insider info on the expanded barrel-aging program with Mike and Kyle, and some talk about a very special brew day for Mike's son Miles. Plus, we let Drunk Jim loose on the festival to collect even more fun interviews! We've got a heaping helping of amazing beer news with the following breweries: Forager, Windmill, Revolution and Brick Stone, Explorium, Barrel Theory, Mikerphone, 450 North, 4 Hands, Barn Town, Ology, Narrow Guage, 1840, Cerebral, DryHop, and the festival support staff. Grab a bottle of Imperial Smells Like Bean Spirit stout and join us! Cheers!
