    How hard is it to brew a triple and not have it taste too strong or too "something" in one area or another?

    Edgar--not a question, just wanted to say it's awesome to see a Latinx brewer. Keep on keeping on. After our kids get this vaccine, we're heading to your brewery to support.

    How will Beer Thug Life be providing a distinct voice in the beer conversation? Or what do you think separates your beers from your peers?

    Your entry to brewing beer is an American success story. Are there many brewers like you who have established relationships with breweries to market their own beers like you?

    This drinks BIG. Huge melon fruits and a little sticky. Was that the intent?

    Hi Edgar, it's been fun joining you for beers the last two nights. I know you talked a lot about bringing craft beer to your community and getting people excited about good beer. Would you have any advice for other brewers who wanted to reach different customers?

    Are the concentrated hop products you use all about production yield? Is there any flavor differences you plan for when using them?

    Hey Edgar, thanks so much for being an awesome host-- and Todd, too!-- but you haven't happened to have found a lost wallet, have you?

    What can white folks do to make beer more inclusive to POC?
