gendoo ,

Getting behind the bubbles!

Hearing the voices of the people who craft your favourite brew is really interesting. Particularly for the folks who understand that care and sweat are key ingredient to a good brew.

Keep up the great work.

ps. Would love to hear from the Hockley Valley Brewing folks!
