Corey and Ira wrap up their one-day winter voyage to Duluth by visiting Hoops Brewing on Canal Park. The two talk with proprietor and brewer Dave Hoops on a busy Saturday night in the heart of the brewery — its brewhouse. Hoops, a pillar of Minnesota brewing, shares the idea around developing his namesake business, his history in the industry, and what he hopes patrons get from visiting his beautiful and historic beer hall. It’s truly an insightful chat that anyone with even a modicum of interest in Minnesota beer and its history won’t want to miss.

Beer samples discussed this show include Halucidation from Inbound Brewco, Mo’Whiskey Milk Stout from Waconia Brewing Company, and a trio of offerings from Lakes & Legends Brewing Company.

They recap the origin story of the brewery, but spend most of the time talking about two years in business, the ever-changing lineup of beer offered in the space, and walk through what’s currently on tap.
