#133 The Melody Of Beer with Fred Cormier (Hopfenstark)


After numerous failed attempts, we finally caught up with the legendary Fred Cormier of Hopfenstark at his taproom and bar, Station Ho.st, situated between The Village and Le Plateau neighbourhoods. Fred has been brewing for a long time, he came up with some of the most lauded brewers in Vermont like Shawn Hill, John Kimmich and Sean Lawson, and brews some exceptionally made beers out of his new expanded production facility. We ran through a ton of beers on a snowy Tuesday afternoon, and the chat was so fun we were almost hit 3 hours. Stick around, it's worth it. Enjoy!
