    I find it interesting how they deal with the hop shortage/expense by extracting more flavors from yeast which I think is a good idea even though borne of necessity.

    Interesting article, would have liked to hear a little more about the beer scene in Ecuador and about the beers she is producing, specifically.

    Since you seem interested, we actually ran an article on the beer scene in Ecuador a few years ago. Give it a read and please consider supporting our journalism with a subscription.

    It certainly behooves brewers to brew with what is locally available. That is how brewers of old used to do it and, IMO, is the real meaning of terroir.

    Very happy for the ladies ! It would be nice if they had a brewery in Cuenca.

    Thanks for the interesting story, and putting Pink Boots Society on my radar.
