We got to visit Lagunitas Brewing Company, home of the Hoppy Refresher, to learn all of the secrets of making hop water. After brewing an experimental batch of hop water, we sat down with Jeremy Marshall, Mark Hughes, and Brian Donaldson to get all of their tips and secrets of making incredible hop water, and to learn about the history of the beverage. Then, we end the conversation by talking about innovation and the push towards more health consciousness in the beer industry.
