We have an action packed episode with Danny and Javi. Items of discussion include the recent Wicked Weed Brewing news, the South African Hops story, Beachwood's run-in with FAKE NEWS, The Full Pint 10th Anniversary and more.
We are joined by Kelly Green Brewing's Founder Justin Flemming and Ed Coffee, who has headed up their barrel program. Kelly Green Brewing is a small startup brewery in South Jersey, right near Philadelphia. While Philadelphia is a rather mature craft beer scene, South Jersey is just now joining in on the fun.
In the back of Highland Park Brewery, on #SaisonDay, Dan and Javi sit down with craft beer legend Rob Tod of Allagash Brewing. We talk about many topics including Allagash's laser focus in the always volatile market, stories of Allagash's beginnings, fun times with the Brett pack and much much more.
