9:12 am
>> it was that, it is like when you cook with alcohol or wine, the alcohol cooks off. so this is, you know like i said a byproduct of the distillation that for some people sought after quality for some not so much. it's gone. so what we feature at cafe grace is a beautiful great lakes distillery. it is local really cool they are trying to help bring this revival back. >> what do >> right up here we fill with ice water. as can you see there is the absence spoon with the sugar cube. so you just kind of open the valve and it trickles down over the sugar cube dissolving it. >> the water does? >> yeah it's just absence and water. >> as the cold water hits the booze it creates a milky beautiful look. >> it's like a sipper drink?

9:19 am
lunchmeat keeps her going and our little moments together keep me going. to make more than a sandwich. welcome back our tour of tosa continues with the wisconsin favorite, beer. this isn't a liquor store or a tiny corner of your grocery store. this is a store dedicated to just beer. whether you like brew out of a bottle, a can or fresh out of the tap they have it all. >> they have it all. we're talking about the malt shop in wauwatosa. the owner is here with more good morning pat. >> good morning how are you guys? >> good morning. >> we're not talking about ice cream here? >> no a malt shop. >> i'm thinking ice cream.
9:20 am
>> it's a beer store dedicated to beer. we have 1200 different styles of beers on the shelves. we call ourselves the premier bottle shop. the front half is bottle shop, the back half is the bar. they are constantly rotating so there is a different beer on every six weeks. >> so you have the bottles in front where you can shop. >> that's another thing all of the bottles are available as a stand alone single. so you can go in and buy five different beers or build your own six-pack. >> iik oftentimes especially when you are trying something new you want to get a variety back. you want to try these different flavors or you see something you have heard of before. we're showing these here you have three different sizes this is new to disease explain what a growler is. >> i have seen the bottles i didn't really know what is a growler was. >> it's any container you can take elsewhere. you fill it with draft beer and you can take it to tailgates. you can take it home to a
9:21 am
thing about it is, it's reusable. so, you are cutting down on packaging and being green. >> i love that. so a lot of people they have seen growlers before or gotten one at some brewery that opened up and they have one at home can they bring one they have or do they have to buy this one specific? >> no we'll fill any growler as long as it is a standard side, we have 64, 32 and 16. at our store they are all the same price. that way when you buy one you our logo on it we'll swap it out. the good thing is if you buy 64 today, and it's just going to be you and home you can trade it in for a 32 tomorrow there is no cost. >> oh, very good. okay. >> you said it is resealable. once you pour it out of the draft, how long does that last in the bottle? >> we talk about two different things in beer, one is lasting one is staying fresh.
9:22 am
one actually was poured three days ago. >> did you hear that and it's been opened. >> ten days ago. you can actually still get nice cash n-- carbonation on it. >> you filled it kind of full. >> yeah. >> well you don't have to drink the whole thing. >> i'm thirsty. >> just a little sample. >> that's good. >> it's ten days old. we poured it ten days ago just for this segment. these this one is a seasonal beer. a little darker. it's a seasonal for the fall. >> cheers. >> it's an imperial red. >> that's good too. >> those are really sweet. >> how long are these all lasting? you said this is opened ten days ago. >> typically it could last a
9:23 am
refrigerator as long as it is unopened. as soon as it is opened the beer starts to go flat. it's like opening a can of beer. >> now that we have opened it you got to drink it quick. >> correct. >> now that we opened it. [laughter] >> this is even darker this is an imperial stout. >> is that chocolaty? i love chocolate beer. >> i like that one a lot. yup. really good. >> uh-huh. >> okay so what do you like between you know something off draft or getting it in a bottle? >> there is different beers taste better on draft. the majority of beers taste better on draft. only because of the way they are handled. bottled beers are pasteurized for the most part. because that pasturization there is a little changing of the flavors. it impacts the flavor. also the way the distributors handle it. the way the retailers handle it because it is pasteurized they know they can last longer it tends to be a little older.
9:24 am
>> yeah. >> you are leaning towards the draft? >> i like ipa's and they have a lot of hops. hops dissipate very quickly. so the fresher the beer the better. >> i like draft better than bottle myself how about you? >> why say so. i like the freshman of a bottle -- freshness of a bottle. >> there are styles that are better in bottles just because they are bottle conditioned or lend themselves to aging. you can put them down for a year or two when they come back they change and alter in little different most times better. >> i feel like when people come into your store they get caught talking to you forever? >> they do. >> you're so interesting. >> it's a great opportunity for people who love beer because everybody at the store talks beer. >> yes. >> we get the nerdiest beer nerds and we get the novices. >> they just they are in there because they want to try something different. >> you can sample in your store too? >> we give everybody two free samples. >> okay.
9:25 am
put in the growler is what you want. >> my favorite is the red one. what was that one? >> that is actually when people come in and say what is your favorite that's the one i say too it is a seasonal. >> these are good. people got to stop in. you can learn a ton of stuff from pat and get your own growler. fill a growler and helped ay retire. this is a big fundraiser you are doing right now. it's fundraising for police. 25% of all sales today off of growler will help them get a new police dog because addie is getting old. >> i wanted to give back, they said she wanted an opportunity to get a new dog so like as you mentioned $25 and if they mention morning blend, they can get the growler the bottle itself for free. >> what? >> just giving it away.

9:29 am
welcome back. the aarp has an incredible program that helps people file their taxes for free. last year aloneun more than 75,000 people receive funds that added up to more than $30 million. the program needs your help to stay successful. you will be surprised at the three simple things you need to be able to do in order to volunteer. we'll tell you those in a second. mariann muzzi is with aarp and pete mcguire i is with the tax d program. people are going to be so interested in this. the fact you can get your taxes
9:30 am
what to do and make sure you're doing it right is so important. explain a little bit pete about what the aarp foundation tax aid program is? >> the tax aid program this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> it's 10:30 here on the east coast, 7:30 out west. this is an nbc news special report. there's a chaotic scene unfolding right now in hoboken, new jersey. a new jersey transit train crashing into the terminal there. at least three people confirmed dead, more than 100 others injured. we're told that a number of them are critically injured. >> this of course happened at the height of rush hour earlier this morning. we're already seeing images of terrible destruction. witnesses are speaking out this morning and sharing stories of chaos and panic.
9:31 am
it was a little crowded. there wasn't enough space for everyone to get into the first car, so fortunately i was stuck in the middle. myself and about six other people were in between the cars. we approached the station, and the train just felt like it never stopped. it didn't slow down. it didn't -- it didn't brake. i mean, i don't know for sure if it didn't brake or what was happening. so as soon ae kept going, there was -- the lights shut off. people started yelling. and the people that were standing in between on the other side, on the second -- in the second car, getting ready to come out of that door, were thrown on to our side. a young lady actually that was thrown from that, her legs caught between the doors just as soon as it was about to make that full stop. but we were able to pull her up
9:32 am
in front of me was helping other people, but he had a gash in his forehead. he hadn't known he was bleeding. i didn't fall, fortunately, because there were people in front of me. >> you can hear the fear in her voice. one of the survivors. at least three dead, 100 injured in this train crash this morning. >> and that view from above gives you a really good idea of what this situation is. this isn't a through station. this is a terminal. these tracks come to an end at that specific point in hoboken. ifra stop, it goes off the end of the track, in this case right into the terminal building. >> while we're already hearing these differing accounts of how much, if any, the train had slowed, let's go to our correspondent rehema ellis, our correspondent. what are you hearing? >> good morning. we're standing in what police are calling a staging area. i can see the waiting room of the terminal where that train crashed into.
9:33 am
everywhere, emergency first responders are all around, trying to secure this area in terms of getting the injured away from the area. as you've pointed out, witnesses, some of them, passengers on this train were able to walk away, others were not. i spoke to one woman in the third car of the train. she said it happened really fast. she said everybody in the third car was jolted. some people were standing because they were about to get off the train. and she people were bleeding and shaking and crying. and she said she was able to brace herself because she was still sitting, so she put her hands on the backseat of the seat in front of her, and she was jolted in place. she was able to walk away from this. her concern, she said, is that so many other people may not have been able to walk away. the first thing she did when she got out of the car, she said she called her loved ones to let
9:34 am
but she is terribly shaken and grateful for the fact she was able to walk away from this, savannah. as she pointed out, so many others were not. we are still waiting for a press briefing here. we're told a short time from now, officials will give us more information on the extent of this accident. we don't know how fast the train was going, but we do know that it was approaching this terminal because this is the last stop, as matt was saying. this is where people are to get off. some of them were standing, and that made it even worse. this young woman said she felt that the people who were in the front car -- remember, she was in the third car. she felt that people in the front car may have taken the biggest of the burden in terms of the injuries. savannah? >> and there may have been people on the platform as well right there. rehema, thank you very much. >> tom costello going to look at the investigation side. obviously first they take care of the injured, then figure out
9:35 am
i guess the priority, if the engineer survived the impact, would be to talk to that person. >> that's absolutely right. what was he or she doing? were they paying attention? what did they see? was the equipment operating normally? i got to tell you, i've ridden this train many times. i used to live in new jersey and took that train into manhattan. to come in that fast into hoboken station i find to be rather strange because normally you crawl into hoboken station. it's a very slow snail's pace. so why was this train traveling so fast that it literally rammed right into the station and caused such terrible structural damage and of course so many people injured and potentially killed. we do also know that this line on new jersey transit does not have that automatic braking system called positive train control. that's been a big issue, as you know, for the last dozen years or so following major train crashes, really, from california to new york. but on the new jersey transit
9:36 am
positive train control. so clearly this will probably ramp up the discussion about whether that should have been in place. but you have to wonder, why would the engineer be realizing as he or she was coming into that station and having presumably done this many times before, that you've got to slow down. there are many warning signs and speed signs. >> and by the way, nobody on the platform that we've heard from -- we heard from a witness a second ago -- said there was any horn bng >> as matt points out, the priority would be to speak to the engineer, if that is possible. also, these trains have what is referred to as a black box, don't they, tom? >> they absolutely do. on many of these trains -- now, i cannot speak to specifically what equipment was on this particular train. but many trains do have the equivalent of a black box that allow them to immediately know the speed, whether there were any brakes applied, what the speed was coming out or going
9:37 am
important. >> all right. tom costello, as always, thank you very much. the ntsb has officially launched a go team to get to that scene. >> so once again, a chaotic scene in hoboken, new jersey, across the river from new york city. three dead, perhaps as many as a hundred injured. we'll return you to welcome back. the aarp has an incredible program that helps people file their taxes for free. last year alone volunteers at sites all over the state held funds that added up to more than $30 million. the program needs your help to stay successful. you will be surprised at the three simple things you need to be able to do in order to volunteer. we'll tell you those in a second. mariann muzzi is with aarp and pete mcguire i is with the tax d program. people are going to be so interested in this. the fact you can get your taxes done for free, you can learn
9:38 am
doing it right is so important. explain a little bit pete about what the aarp foundation tax aid program is? >> the tax aid program here in wisconsin as you mentioned helps over 75,000 people last year and generated a lot of funds for the individuals that came from the federal government as well as from the state of wisconsin. >> uh-huh. >> we have over 900 volunteers spread around the state of wisconsin with probably about 400 in your viewing area. >> okay. >> in the southeast wisconsin area, and have over 100 locations in many communities around the state of wisconsin. what we're looking for, and we kind of always looking for is, additional volunteers. even though we have over 900, there are many more people that we could serve if we had additional volunteers. so, this is, the time of year when we're looking for them, even though the tax season doesn't start until february 1,
9:39 am
in november and people need to be trained and certified in order to do other peoples taxes. >> that's what the volunteer does then they apply go through a training process and help other people do their taxes. >> right. >> okay so who do you serve with assistance through the tax aid program? who is coming to you to get their taxes done? >> we serve anybody that we can. we can serve about 95% of people that file individual taxes. there are a few exceptions that are bd provides. we target people who are of low and middle income, and that are basically over 50. but if anybody that walks in, we wind up doing grandchildren that have summer jobs we wind up doing students. we wind up doing anybody that we can do we will do. we won't turn anybody away for age or income. >> that's great. i think when it comes to taxes
9:40 am
you can do. i feel like people leave so much money on the table when you just don't know the ins and outs of taxes. who are the volunteers the people that you're looking for what kind of person would be good to volunteer? >> we have a lot of retiree who is are volunteers. they come from many, many backgrounds. there is no you don't need a financial background or anything else. we have people that have been stay at home moms to cpa's. we also have a number of ud students from the university of milwaukee, university of wisconsin milwaukee and the university of madison who also volunteer and work in our program. so, you need a couple of things though. you need the three things you need, you need a kind of basic understanding with taxes. we can teach you the ins and outs and that you need to know to work with people, but you have to have a basic understanding of how a tax form works. you need a basic understanding
9:41 am
and we use search engine programs et cetera to find information when needed. you need to have a desire to work with and help people. it's a very rewarding program. many of our clients wind up being so grateful for our help and our assistance, that the gratitude comes out immediately. it's an instant reward for the volunteer. >> it's such a tedious thing taxes so what do you love about the tax aid program and what kind of impact are you seeing on people? >> what we really see it's a benefit for the volunteers as well as the general public. the volunteers work as teams in locations as pete said all over the viewing area and the state and the country. so what i witnessed is that the real team spirit, there are groups people overseeing everyone's taxes, supporting each other and then the clients that come in off the street and
9:42 am
taxes are done professionally, they are getting the maximum refund and that's due to them and it's free of charge. >> i love that. >> isn't that wonderful? >> it really is. i think it's a big gift you are giving people to help them out like that and i know right now you need volunteers and the way to do that is to sign up. you've got to go to the website for aarp to do that. volunteers are needed right now training is going on at the moment that's how you can get involved so you are ready for tax season to help p aarp .org/tax aid is where you can go to register to become a volunteer. thanks for being here guys. >> thank you. this is not your average sports bar. we'll show you the perfect place to watch the green and gold and grab a great bite to eat. up next decorating for every budget. how to keep your home up to date and the one thing that is a tell tale sign you need a new look in
9:43 am
9:45 am
welcome back. there are many accessories that make a home look beautiful including your blinds, shades and curtains. if your window coverings have a cord, that is a sign it's time for a upgrade. joining me now is zan anheuser with bazaar home decorative to make sure your home is safe and in fashion. welcome back zan. >> good morning. >> good morning to you.
9:46 am
think about what do you need to know how do you foe know if yoe in fashion, if you have a cord you're out of fashion. >> yes everything here has no cord. this is no child safety hazards in your home. especially if you have little kids you want to make sure that is all gone. you don't know what they are going to get into. >> and they will get into anything. you have an 18 month old what is his name? >> rory james. >> good morning rory hi rory. i'm sure as you decorate your new home you make everything safe. october is child safety month. it's an important message. >> we always like to have free cordless upgrades to allow people to go from a corded shade to standard at no additional charge. >> you brought three different shades today. >> three different shades.
9:47 am
especially bedrooms. bathrooms you're able to lower and raise the shade. very easy operation even on larger operations also good for efficiency. >> is that why people like them in the bathroom and things like that? >> yes it still allows the light to come in, but easy to use and maintain. >> unlike your traditional spring roller shade this is from hunter douglas. this is the screen shade where you can see through it. >> yeah you can see my hand where something is behind it. >> the best part you you don't have to spring it. hopefully it goes all the way up. >> everybody had those vinyl things where it wraps up real fast. >> we mentioned roller shade, a customer is like i don't want that that's what they think of, but it's come a long way. especially with the hunter douglas shades. >> can you make these so they are not see through? >> yes. we have roller shade patterns with textures or patterns. >> those are pretty. yeah hold that there that's
9:48 am
