A Beer with Atlas is a weekly podcast that highlights beers and breweries across the country. Over the years, we’ve discovered that our traveling nurses love visiting breweries during their down time. Ironically, we like to visit breweries during our down time. Each week we will feature one brewery suggested by our nurses. We’ll try their beer, talk about the brewery, talk about the styles of beer, and have a lot of fun. Cheers!
