Draft Mechanic Episode 42: A Trip to Asheville; Herbaceous on Tap; Well Played board games cafe; beer research resources

On this episode of Draft Mechanic, we talk through a massive pile of games we played during the Grand Opening of Asheville NC’s new board game cafe, Well Played! We talk about Dream Home, Celestia, Ice Cool, Fauna, OutLawed, Heroes & Tricks and more in this jam-packed episode. It was so many games that we had to ask for the help of three of our friends for a wide variety of opinions! We’ve also put the recently released and gorgeous Herbaceous on tap with TEN beers paired up with the different herbs in the game. Danielle’s also got a quick rundown of some resources you can use to learn more about craft beer. So sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
