Hop Talk #85 - Non Sequitur's New Digs

8/10/2020
Last week we talked about Keg & Lantern, but there's more than just one brewery in the new space! That's right, Non Sequitur is now operating out of the brew space, so you will be able to try or buy their beers there in the future. This week we are joined by Gage once again to get the scoop on two of their new IPAs, upcoming beers, and what moving to K&L means for the future of Non Sequitur. Visit www.snobeery.com for more photos and info on this episode!

Hop Talk #84 - Keg & Lantern Red Hook

New breweries and secondary locations keep popping up even in the midst of the pandemic, and Keg & Lantern is one of the latest, popping up right here in Red Hook! This week we try some lighter beers from the new location, and talk about adjusting to the pandemic because that's all everyone talks about nowadays.

Hop Talk #81 - The First Remote Episode

5/18/2020
As mentioned last week, there was a previously recorded episode via video-chat, and here it is!

Hop Talk #80 - Finback to Back to Back!

4/27/2020
Full disclosure - this is actually the second of two episodes recorded via video chat (so far), but calling the episode Finback to Back to Back was too alluring to pass up! Credit goes to Charlie over in the UK for that name, as well as for joining in virtually to share some tasty Finback collabs! We promise we'll drink something else next episode but be sure to tune in for this one as the beers are an absolute treat and, at the very least, a departure from Finback stouts. Visit...

Season 2 Bonus Episode - OH Anniversary, The Night Before
