We wrap up our interview with Henryk "Heiner" Orlik, brewmaster and owner of Heiner Brau Microbrewery in Covington, Louisiana. Henryk weathered Hurricane Katrina in his brewery, and afterward brewed for several area breweries that had been destroyed during the storm. Later we search for alligators in the Honey Island Swamp, and visit a modern 'gator ranch.
