Absolutely love this show. And the host. And Yakima.
Awesome insight into the hop world
This podcast is a fantastic look into the hop growing capital. The conversation with Eric from CLS shares so much insight into hop growing, breeding, business, and economics that I had never thought about as the end user of hops. Keep up the great work!
I like the interviews with hop farmers and dealers who touch the hops before they get to you or the brewer. Those are very informative and open a window on a portion of the story we don't often get. Keep the podcasts coming and I hope you have a long podcast life
