To kick off the new season of Beer Me!, host Sarah Jane spoke with someone who was kicking off their career in beer.

Amanda Burke, Assistant Brewer for Ladybird Brewing in Winfield, Kansas joined the show to share how she got her start in the beer world through the Brewers Association Mentorship Program. 

She shares what it’s been like to be guided into brewing by some excellent mentors, how the culture built by Ladybird Brewing has impacted her journey, and some goals she hopes to achieve.

“We’ve had the privilege of sitting down with some impressive industry veterans,” says Sarah Jane, “but it is refreshing to hear from someone just starting out.”
