    New Times Best of 2020, Strange Investment Opportunities

    (NSFW) In this weeks Road Sodas episode, The Hoppy Craftsmen go over Phoenix New Time's Best of 2020. A few of the places we love made the list, and was pumped to see them get some recognition. Next, Instagram keeps promoting some strange investment opportunity, the guys dig deeper into what that is. For once Ed and Chris are fan boy'n out to some Wren House brews, while Nate is stuck drinking the #1 Rated IPA in the US. It's a horrible world we know. Which, Ed and Chris see as one of the signs of the coming Craft Beer Apocalypse. This and more on episode 7 of Road Sodas.
    Road Sodas: An alcoholic beverage (usually beer or perhaps malt liquor) consumed inside a moving vehicle. This beverage can be consumed by passenger, driver, or both. Road sodas are illegal in most states due to open container laws. Still, they are widely enjoyed as evidenced by all the beer cans littering rural road sides.

    Odd Beers and Old Beers

    Odd Beers and Old Beers

    (NSFW) The guys catch on some more local news. Probably some other national news, and possibly some regional news as well. I'm sure there is some mention of an odd beer that has been produced. The notable Rowley Farmhouse is mentioned since their head brewer Wes has took a job some where else. Chris tries and old favor tire that turns out to be not so good anymore. Ed and Nate enjoy real craft beers and enjoy Chris' misfortune.

    Mustard Beers, Stone's CEO, and Goldwater Brewing

    (NSFW) The guys are back with this weeks road soda's episode. They talk about what shouldn't be in a beer. Including two newly released beers, one of them is a mustard beer. Sorry for all the puking sounds in the background, they couldn't help themselves. They go over the recent announcement of Stone Brewing's current CEO leaving and what that means for the nations 9th largest "craft" brewery. In more local news Goldwater Brewing found that a foreign brewery is stealing their designs. The guys debate about the line between theft and parody.

    Virtual GABF, Blind Pig vs Pliny, and State of Beer

    Virtual GABF, Blind Pig vs Pliny, and State of Beer

    (NSFW) Road Sodas Return! After a little hiatus the guys are back. Ed recently braved leaving his house for a road trip to California. He hit up multiple breweries, and was able to see how they are handling social distancing compared to Arizona. He was lucky enough to be staying close to Russian River and was able to bring back for the rest of the Hoppy Craftsmen. They talk about the GABF going virtual this year and what that means. They debate the old Blind Pig is better than Pliny, and cover some favorite brews from recent weeks.

    Netflix and Chill Beer List, AZ Updates, Lax Alcohol Laws

    (NSFW) In this this weeks remote Road Sodas episode the guys talk about current events in Arizona, how some of the laws should be kept this way for beer and craft drink deliveries. There was a recent article on what beers to drink while watching the Top 10 trending shows on Netflix. The Craftsmen weren't impressed with it. So they created our own! Ed, Nate, and Chris share their top four shows or movies and what beers to pair with each one. Look for more shows like this to help fill the time you spend in quarantine.  Have an idea for an up coming Road Soda? Shoot us an email hoppycraftsmen@gmail.com

Supporting the Locals

Love craft beer. I love to support local anything. Love local breweries. Love local podcasts. Love everything about the Hoppy Craftsman. Even the name is 100. The dudes are funny and have a wealth of beer knowledge. Aside from making me thirsty everything about this pod is great.

E.Gomis ,

Arizona craft beer and a whole lot more.

Every episode feels like you’re sitting down to chat with friends. They gain access to the people and processes behind the bar of local breweries all while maintaining a humble working-class perspective. They provide a great blend of technical and personal information that will satisfy those that are new to craft beer as well as those that work in the industry. This podcast is a great way to discover new breweries or learn something new about your favorite local beer.
