Ep 7: New England IPA’s with Special guest Mark Collings

Are NEIPA’s a gateway beer? What is the traditionalists' beef with this new delicious style? We talk about that as well as what makes the style unique.

Home brewed New England IPA and the attack of the clones. Well, Wayne brewed one.

Lot’s a beer travel. Jason visited Austin Texas, Ft Lauderdale, Asheville South Carolina, and Boone North Carolina, and hit all of the great spots as you would expect.

Our guest, Mark Colligs (@craftcouple), has been brewing since the 90’s and helped build Southern Barrel Brewing. He is currently building out a hop yard in Pennsylvania that includes a 7 barrel brew house. He recently took a trip to New England touring a dozen breweries.

Diversity in craft beer is improving but has a long way to go. We struggle a bit to solve all the worlds problems. A bunch of white guys discussing diversity, what can go wrong?

How can we be a more positive community? We drop some tips and tricks on providing recommendations for local or independent options to friends cold AB Inbev products on social media.

The Bruery takes on private investment and the craft beer world responds with crickets.
