Episode 007: Sip of Sunshine and the Brothers Holloway
It’s episode 7 and we invite the co-owners (and brothers) of Paul Bunyan Fitness in Newtown Square, Ryan and Michael Holloway. We just celebrated 6 years of the gym being opened and Mike and Ryan help us relive a lot of the great and funny moments. We get into why they decided to open the gym in the first place and how it became Paul Bunyan.
In this episode, we traverse thru naming the gym to Ryan’s basement. During the traversing, Mike talks about his favorite beers from Vermont to Ireland (maybe not so much Ireland). We briefly touch on Crohn’s disease and its effects on beer drinking. Chaz thankfully keeps Gene on topic as he takes this episode on a terribly wild ride. We close it down with the Jack’s Hard cider and Sip of Sunshine reviews and our thoughts about where Paul Bunyan will be in another 6 years.
