"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is brought to you by Miller Brewing Company, calling Milwaukee home since 1855. For the entire month of March, we're serving up fun articles on bars, clubs and beverages – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars poll and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

It would be impossible to have a podcast about people in Milwaukee and not talk about beer. In Episode 3 of Brew City Conversations, host John Hand sits down with world-renowned brewmaster Dr. David Ryder.

Ryder spent more than 20 years as the vice president of brewing, research, innovation and quality for MillerCoors and is currently working as the chief innovation officer at City Lights Brewing. The two discuss Ryder’s background, his beer-brewing experiences around the world, time at Miller Coors, the explosion of the craft brewing industry and more.
