  1. From "Russ Perry Jr" :

    Missing Chasing Freshies at first seemed appropriate given that its label is predominantly white, not green like the rest — seemed at the beginning that THAT was the theme of the episode!

  2. From "Peter" :

    Great set up of beers Chris! With Surly in the market now, next year you could do a Chicago market roundup, with Deschutes, Founders, Surly, Upland, Three Floyds and Half Acre. Would be very interested to know your thoughts on Half Acre Sticky Fat as it is quite different than the rest of the wet hop group. Wet/Fresh hop beers very well be my favorite style so I try to seek as many of these out as I can (though nothing has dethroned Harvest Ale yet in my book!)
