This week, Jimmy crunches the numbers with Ted Kenny of Top Hops, Gage Siegel of Beer Menus and Nonsequitur Brewing Project, David Steinman of Craft Brew News, and Ethan Siegler, author of a recent study on Los Angeles beer consumer choice. They talk about what kind of beer data they’re interested in, the dominance of the “hazy IPA,” the geographic differences in craft beer offerings, highlights from Ethan’s thesis study, and what exactly the “mobility gap” is.
