The Sixth Beer of Oktoberfest - Real Estate & Civil Engineers

 For the Sixth Beer of Oktoberfest, I sat down with Aubrey Brockman, PE (Professional Engineer) to discuss the role of civil engineers in the real estate market. We covered topics from grading and drainage to N*Sync and the Spice Girls.

Our beer was Keine Eier, a hefeweizen, from Odd Muse Brewing. I picked it up because the can looked like an Oktoberfest but I was wrong.
