WATCH IT! This episode has no doors or windows, you’ll have problems finding a way out.
We triple batched this episode with Nelson Hops and Pliny talk to keep it beer geeky fresh. Speaking of beer geek talk, we reveal what the hottest new beer in the country and give a MAJOR Tap Room Update that relates to a listener of the show.

Our 4th and final crowler in our Fieldwork Brewing series is cracked.
