“We decided to brew at home because we were looking for flavors that you couldn’t get here on the East Coast.” [7:25]

“There are so many new varieties of hops out there that pack such a punch! A lot of these super high-alpha hops are used for making these IPAs- these hops are fun to use in the brew house because they’re a little less labor intensive.” [13:00]
