Episode 32: Ryan & Jeff of Track 7 Brewing and Capitol Taproom’s Kenny Hotchkiss

September 17, 2016

Host Ben Rice stands up with Ryan and Jeff of Track 7 Brewing (Sacramento, CA) and Kenny Hotchkiss, owner of Capitol Taproom (Sacramento). We talk about Track 7's recent expansion, plus their brand new canning line. We also delve deeply into the history, past, present, and future, of the NE IPA Haze Craze while sipping on Track 7 Sukahop. Kenny tells us about his own expansion plans, as he prepares to open a second location closer to the new Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento. Naturally, we talk about what the new arena holds for the future of Sacramento, not just in the beer and food world, but for its population and its much-maligned transit system. But mostly! Haze! IPA! and the slow, creeping death of classic styles. And if that isn't enough to draw you in, late in the episode, Ryan spits out the worst/best pun I have ever heard. Enjoy!
