As we all do at this time of year, it's time to look back at 2014. If we do say so ourselves, it's been quite the year for The Hop Review. We've been lucky enough to sit down with no-less than 28 of the craft beer industry's most knowledgeable, passionate, and driven people. This is all on top of the many events we've attended and the countless other awesome folks we've come across; many of who we plan to chat with throughout the next year.
Yet another summer weekend, yet another big beer tasting event right? We'll admit that we had fairly low expectations for the Sierra Nevada brainchild, Beer Camp Across America. After all, the event was held in Navy Pier's Grand Ballroom, a place many Chicagoans never make it to due to losing all desire to dodge the hordes of tourists bouncing between Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville and Bubba Gump Shrimp.
