After years of drinking brews from blue cans & several mediocre attempts at home brewing, the four members of The Hop Review (Nick, Tom & Jack) thought they'd explore other ways to exercise their interest in beer. After moving to Chicago, college pals Jack & Tom began falling further into the craft scene, and set out in an effort to better document it, by way of folks who know it best. They have been fortunate enough to sit down and tell the stories of some of the area's best brewers, shop owners, distributors, and brand managers around Chicago, the Midwest and beyond. They are big fans of sour beer, with Jolly Pumpkin being one of their all-time favorites.
