This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett share some recordings with the team at HK Brewcraft, a homebrewing supply store in Hong Kong. Tune in to learn about the growing craft beer culture in Hong Kong, and why homebrewing is so difficult in Hong Kong. How is HK Brewcraft promoting good beer through multiple avenues? What is Hong Kong's brewing identity? Hear about some of the interesting fermentations coming out of HK Brewcraft, including lemon tea beer and banana wine! Find out how the melting pot of Hong Kong leads to a certain open-mindedness regarding different beer styles. Thanks to our sponsor, Fairway Market.

"It used to be that the only way to drink beer in Hong Kong was to make your own." [4:50]

"I see Hong Kong water as a blank slate. You can always add minerals to the water, but taking them out is another issue." [22:20]

We've got Mark Burford of Blue Point Brewing Co., John Liegey and Greg Soroski and of Greenport Harbor Brewing Co., Paul Dlugokencky from Blind Bat Brewery, and beer blogger Niko Krommydas. Hear Mark's wild start in brewing- hiding from the "ice mob" and killing hundreds of Long Island trout. Hear about some famous Long Island beers, from Blue Point's Toasted Lager to Greenport Harbor's Maibock. Listen to these Long Islanders' local beer pride, and the difficulties starting a brewery of any size on Long Island. Tune in to hear about these different brewing companies deal with their brewing waste- spent grain and "gray water". This episode has been brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

"So as soon as the shotgun goes off at ten thousand feet, I've got this ringing and explosion going around my head with the nitrous and everything...and I said to myself, 'I have to recreate this in a beer."

"Breweries are 'green' by nature...everything that goes in, goes out." -- Mark Burford on Beer Sessions Radio

"We're in a space now where we're able to make the beers we want, we're making them where we want to make them, and Long Island is the place we choose." --John Liegey on Beer Sessions Radio
