The idea for this show came from Engineer Randy, an avowed fan of alcoholic, flavored carbonated waters, who scoured retail shelves far and wide to uncover Mitten-made hard seltzer gems. Devon O’Reilly, Daily Detroit’s Man About Town, also lent his enthusiasm and taste buds, while Jer and Shianne rounded out our Distinguished Panel of tasters. Sports correspondent Fletcher Sharpe and yours truly offered moral support.

This episode is devoted to science, because someone had to do it.
