The Beer Buzz Hits the Road: Lagunitas Born Yesterday

Tagged:

It’s that time of year again… fresh hop season! The hop harvest is a joyous occasion where freshly plucked hop cones head straight off the bines and into the kettle. Okay, in many cases it means overnighting the hops across the country, and Lagunitas did just that for their super dank, super wet and super tasty Born Yesterday Pale Ale. We wanted to be there for its birthday, so we called up our friends at Lagunitas and headed over for a visit.
 
Born Yesterday is all about freshness. Freshly picked hops are usually dried and processed as quickly as possible in order to prevent spoilage. For Born Yesterday, freshly picked “wet hops” from the Yakima Valley are the key component of this amazingly flavorful and aromatic brew.

Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.

Tagged:

The Whiskey Hotline recently took a brief adventure west which led us to a quaint little farm + distillery in DeKalb, IL. We were led around by the Whiskey Acres team which is run by father + son duo Jim and Jamie Walter, and co-founder Nick Nagele. They like to think of our area as the “Napa Valley of corn,” so it made sense to them to start turning this agricultural gold into delicious whiskies.
