“I love yeast; I’m definitely yeast-forward when it comes to making beer. The good thing about the term ‘farmhouse ale’ is that it doesn’t really mean anything. If you make a hoppy Belgian-style beer, you can give that to IPA fans and still be showing the flavor of yeast… It allows us to be open and have fun with it.” [5:35]
