Hop Talk #89 - Hudson Valley Lagers
We've done a few episodes on Hudson Valley Brewery on the show, but they've all been focused on their famous sour IPAs - until now! This week on Hop Talk we dig into some of HVB's lighter offerings of lagers and pilsners, of which there are quite many. Join us for a look at the other side of Hudson Valley, ideally with a lager to drink along with! Visit www.snobeery.com for more photos and info on this episode!

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. Visit www.snobeery.com for more photos and info on this episode! Learn more about the NYC Brewer's Guild and join Blocktoberfest 2020 at https://www.nycbrewed.com/

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

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 #81 - The First Remote Episode
As mentioned last week, there was a previously recorded episode via video-chat, and here it is! On this informal (or just about as formal as usual?) catch-up episode, Blake and Sonia AKA House of Stouts and House of Sours join in from their respective households to share some beers and social distancing stories. Let's keep on keeping on! Hopefully this episode will work well to pass the time during - well - these dark times. Visit www.snobeery.com for more photos and info on this episode!

Hop Talk #80 - Finback to Back to Back!
Full disclosure - this is actually the second of two episodes recorded via video chat (so far), but calling the episode Finback to Back to Back was too alluring to pass up! Credit goes to Charlie over in the UK for that name, as well as for joining in virtually to share some tasty Finback collabs! We promise we'll drink something else next episode but be sure to tune in for this one as the beers are an absolute treat and, at the very least, a departure from Finback stouts.

Season 2 Bonus Episode - OH Anniversary, The Night Before
