1. Unemployment up and manufacturing down - The economy sucks - Sound familiar?

    Yes, things are challenging at the moment but maybe it's not all doom and gloom. Maybe we can still make things in this country and make them well. Maybe with a little vision, ingenuity, and good old fashioned elbow grease, we can right the ship. LABOR OF LOVE is a series that explores the stories of small businesses that are still making things in America. Uncommon Brewers is one of these businesses. As a small craft brewery in Santa Cruz, CA, Uncommon Brewers has taken a unique approach to their product and marketplace. Take a look at how they are not just surviving in today's economy, but excelling.
