On the eve of their fourth year in business, the team from Hopewell Brewing comes to the studio from Chicago.  Jimmy talks to married couple Samantha Lee and Stephen Bossu of Hopewell about building an inclusive environment in the taproom and having a brewery that supports its staff.  Tom Pavlich of Remarkable Liquids is also on hand, as is Katie Cochrane of Carton Brewing who once wrote a thesis based on Crooked Stave founder Chad Yakobson’s research. The group discusses the taste of sea buckthorns, brewing mixed fermentations, and Stephen’s world-best brewing test score.
