Two big things on today's show as we get ready for HomeBrewCon! The first, we asked you for your Brewday disasters and boy did you deliver. So we're going to run through some of our favorite stories of things gone horribly wrong. And in more positive and hopful news, Drew talks with Richard Smith of Florida Hops, LLC about the challenges of pulling off the improbable - growing hops in the humid heat of Florida. We'll find out new techniques he's establishing and the impact of Florida terroir on our favorite hops!

Florida pride!
It's too close to home
And it's too near the bone

"Then the utility box caught on fire"  This has raised the bar for disaster stories
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

I was wondering what could make him stop

Very good episode - we have all been humbled in the process at one time or another, but that fella with the broken stove and electric panel took the cake with mishaps overcome in the name of Beer!
