Welcome to The History of Hops Podcast. This week I did some research into the Boatswain brand of Trader Joes’s Beers. Turns out there is a pretty complex history behind where these beers are brewed, and there is a fascinating family behind the curtain. We also get into some detail about Speakeasy Brewery and their attempts to find a buyer while being crippled by debt. We finish off with another Kirin Beer, which is basically an alcoholic version of Squirt Soda. Beers included in this podcast:
- Boatswain HLV Ale
- Boatswain Twin Screw Steamer Double IPA
- Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA
- Kirin Grapefruit Thing
Thanks for listening!
