This week on The Speakeasy, we celebrate the eve of America's birthday by talking about barbecue, bikes, and the history of America's food industry with Dan Lyle, owner of The Shop in Brooklyn. Together with host Damon Boelte, Dan talks about the influence of the upcoming 4th of July, tracing back its roots to the laborers of the 1800s. As a result, America continues to pride itself on the importance of a communal table, the notion of community, and simply sharing a meal with family and friends. Lastly, Dan talks about The Shop, a dual barbecue bar and motorcycle shop due to open this Summer / Early Fall, and how he strives to teach the community about growing meat within the food industry today. Tune-in to learn more about the significance of tomorrow's holiday, and how the future of agriculture depends on how we grow and raise our food. This program has been sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
