Tap the Craft Episode 86: Best Lagers of 2017

In Episode 86 we bring our buddy Kris back to discuss our favorite lagers of 2017. This is the first of four segments we are doing to celebrate some great beers drank in 2017. We also talk about “whale” hunting and all the fun to be had while waiting in line. Kris also speaks of his experience being a Secret Hopper and learn how you can get paid to drink beer.  So grab a beer and enjoy!
