Taxing Beer & Spirited Cocktails (Charlie Tonic Hour #305)

Taxing Beer & Spirited Cocktails (Charlie Tonic Hour #305)

Ginny and Charlie may have had a quiet weekend but that doesn’t stop them from having a jam packed show. They talk about a proposed tax reduction for craft breweries and if the booming craft beer industry really needs a tax break. Then they get in the spirit of Halloween by mixing up a classy and entertaining color changing cocktail AND looking at the very nature of spirits and how we came to use that term. All this plus some recommendations for the week before they’re done.
