Tap the Craft Episode 158: Noble Hop Session

In Episode 158 we continue with our hop sessions, this time diving into the noble style hops. These hops are at the heart of German/Czech pilsners so we thought it was important to discover what they are all about.  We read an email provided for our best PNW breweries list and have a craft article concerning a new US variety noble hop.  Plus we offer a lot of random beer talk as well.  So grab a beer and enjoy the show!
