City-State Brewing is coming to the Brookland/Edgewood neighborhood. Today, Brandy chats with James Warner, owner of City State. James gives a compelling answer to the frequent question: why are you opening another brewery in DC? Then, he shares the parts of DC that inspire City-State the most, how local art and community will be incorporated into the atmosphere, and how the City-State team will create a sense of home in DC’s neighborhoods. 

After the interview, Jake addresses the damaging behavior taking place in breweries across the country.
