Hop Talk is a beer-community focused podcast where we discuss craft beer, the people who make it and the people who drink it. Cheers!
Hop Talk #88 - Halftone Spirits
Gin! That's right, today we are trading in the sound of cracking cans for popping corks as we sit down (virtually) with Andrew Said Thomas, distiller and owner of Halftone Spirits. This new project grew alongside Finback Brooklyn and is housed in their new space. They are doing some amazing things which make one rethink what gin can be! Don't worry, there is at least one hop in this episode. We sample each batch released, plus one that has yet to come out! Visit www.snobeery.com for more photos and info on this episode!
Hop Talk #87 - Blocktoberfest 2020
Hop Talk is back just in time for Oktoberfest! Well, Oktoberfest was cancelled this year for obvious reasons, and so is the NYC yearly event Blocktoberfest - at least in the traditional sense. This episode we are joined by Ann Reilly of the NYC Brewer's Guild to talk all about the new direction this local beer get-together is taking for 2020, as well as how the Guild aims to support NYC breweries through exposure and education.

Hop Talk #85 - Non Sequitur's New Digs
Last week we talked about Keg & Lantern, but there's more than just one brewery in the new space! That's right, Non Sequitur is now operating out of the brew space, so you will be able to try or buy their beers there in the future. This week we are joined by Gage once again to get the scoop on two of their new IPAs, upcoming beers, and what moving to K&L means for the future of Non Sequitur.

Hop Talk #84 - Keg & Lantern Red Hook
We are back from our little summer vacation! Well, as much of a vacation as we could have at the moment... New breweries and secondary locations keep popping up even in the midst of the pandemic, and Keg & Lantern is one of the latest, popping up right here in Red Hook! This week we try some lighter beers from the new location, and talk about adjusting to the pandemic because that's all everyone talks about nowadays.

Hop Talk #83 - Two-Thirds of Other Half
We are back with another tele-conference episode, catching up over some Other Half beers! Well not quite, since Carl had other plans in mind. Tune in and have a beer with us as we discuss adjusting to lockdown life! Visit www.snobeery.com for more photos and info on this episode!
Customer ReviewsSee All
Long time listener. Always great content and the revolving co-hosts bounce off Forrest (the mainstay host) really well meaning that it never gets stale. Content is entertaining but factual and filled with opinion. Shape of the show is really strong and just the right duration. Felt it was time to give a 5* review. A big thank you to all involved.
