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]
