Slurred Words Episode 26 - Chelsea Piner of Traffic Jam and Snug


Happy New Years everybody! I didn't realize this until Facebook told me, but its been a year since Ep. 1 was released. It took some time for the podcast to figure out what it was going to be, now after having a number of brewers and people involved in the craft beer industry on the podcast I can't wait to see who I will talk to in the year 2016.

To start the year off right I sit down with Chelsea Piner, the new head brewer at the first Micro brewery in Detroit, Traffic Jam and Snug. Chelsea has a great beer background, starting off as a bar tender at Detroit Beer Company then moving out to San Diego to work with one of my favorite breweries, Stone Brewing. Now she is back in Detroit and she is bringing fresh ideas to the Traffic Jam. It was great talking with her, she is so knowledgeable about beer, she is a Cicerone Certified beer server work on her level 2 certification and just an awesome person. I can't wait to see what she does at Traffic Jam. After this interview tried the first Sour at the Traffic Jam and it was delicious! Head on down to Midtown Detroit and check out Traffic Jam and Snug and taste some of Chelsea's beers on tap.
