Ep. 11: Not The Only Beer Girl

In Episode 11 of the Operation Shutdown, I welcome special guest Sara Bozich. Sara is the constructor and conductor of SaraBozich.com. Sara was kind enough to join me at the last minute to discuss some beers for the upcoming holiday season.

When Sara isn’t toiling on her famous Weekend Roundup and her blog, she is working as a writer and producer for GK Visual. Sara is also part of the machine behind Harrisburg Beer Week.

Be sure to check out Sara’s upcoming holiday party. Tickets are on sale now (special discount until Monday, November 7th).


A big thank you to Sara for coming on the show. You can follow her beyond her very nice blog mentioned above via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
