Distiller for a Day: Skip Rock

I’m not really sure how to put it other than the class was awesome!! I could read books on the topic all day and never learn as much as I did at Skip Rock. I would take more classes on this topic and have and will continue to recommend it. Thank you! – Dan

Really enjoyed it. I got everything that I had hoped for from the course. Unfortunately, I had to leave early, but Ryan agreed to answer questions after the course so that worked out well for me. Great job by Ryan! – JWF
