CBI007 Everyone Has an ‘O-pina’ on Scotch & Tequila with John Lyda


John Lyda is the master of all-things-brewing. He is a full-time faculty member and instructor at CBI where he shares his wealth of knowledge and experience on brewing, distilling, and fermentation with his students.


John joins me for today’s Booze Clues Special - his favorite type of spirit - tequila. We share our “o-pinas” on tequila and scotch and discuss some of the best-tasting tequila and scotch drinks we’ve enjoyed. We also discuss how CBI aims to help students learn the art of making craft beer, some of the upcoming classes you can participate in, and how we help breweries, distilleries, and companies develop and improve their products.
