Sam returns to the podcast with beers from the hypebeasts of the Boston/Massachusetts/New England scene. Adam is unhappy. Steve reserves judgement. In the first segment, they present neat beer tidbits like the 2019 clone list from the AHA, a brewery using hot spring water, and another opening in Pittsburgh. Then Sam delves into the history of the NEIPA style including The Alchemist's Heady Topper. Finally, they all put their heads together to workshop yet another craft beer themed video game that was not inspired by Mortal Kombat 11. Hope you like shitty, fake Boston accents.

Kelsey joins Steve and Adam to tackle the hot new craze of 2019, Brut IPAs. We discuss the emerging style, how the government shutdown affects the craft beer industry and local news on Hitchhiker being sued. Then on Nobody Asked You we answer questions from around beer internet. Finally, we wrap up with our own beer inventions, because everything at CES sucks.
I originally was going to name this episode The Brut Man in reference to an old horror/thriller film that got Mystery Science Theater'd but it just wasn't as apropos. Perhaps if you speak French you'll get the reference and how it fits into the whole of the episode. This is all just SEO filler.
