Who is Hugh Malone? Pioneer of all things hop related – I had no idea

Cool beer people met: A whole bunch – It was especially nice to meet – JJ, Gail and Steve from Beer By Bart, Austin and Neal – two homebrewers that live out by the beach – and pretty much everyone else too – very cool group of people.

Number of homebrew beers drank after tasting: 3 samples – tasty

Can’t wait for another one of the Thirsty Hopster’s tastings – And now a few pics:

    Hey Joe, I’m so glad you had a good time and that I got a chance to finally meet you.

    See you at the next one! (hopefully: it will be Sunday, August 24th)
