MABN Hop Tips, Mid-May 2016

Hi Everybody! I've finally recovered from the Craft Brewers Conference (Note: If someone says "Take a sip of this" - Don't! Head cold) and I hope that you were able to get to some of the CBC events. Here are a few events that popped up since the last time. Don't forget about American Craft Beer Week and Philly Beer Week is coming up. Enjoy Memorial Day Weekend and cheers.
