Episode 64 – Hopping Down in New Zealand

Denny’s back from New Zealand and boy, the stories he has to tell! And of course, we’re back to our usual format – thank you for sticking with us as we planned our way around absences and April Fool’s day. In this episode, we cover a rough few weeks in the beer world and some new guidelines for everyone to argue over, look at some lambic myths, Drew’s stupid brew day and Denny’s recap of the New Zealand Homebrewer’s Conference including their unique competition format before we hit the hop fields to learn some New Zealand hop secrets. All of that plus we answer your questions, hit you with a hot tip and hotter wings too!
