Tap the Craft Episode 83: Going to the Hop Farm

In Episode 83 we take a trip to the hop farm and talk about the experience at Gooding Farms on the Merry Hopsters Bus Tour put on by Bittercreek Alehouse.  We also cover the American Lager style guidelines according to the BJCP, as well as a listener provided article concerning an incident where a consumer ingested caustic beer from a bar. So grab a beer and enjoy!
