Luc Beaulieu (Yakima Chief Hops)

Luc Beaulieu (Yakima Chief Hops)

A conversation about COVID- 19, who is Yakima Chief Hops, Proprietary Hops, Cryo Hops, Chicoutimi's metal scene, Quebec's archaic alcohol laws & his hangover cure.

Throughout this interview Luc was drinking Lagabière's Blue & Red "Combat Des Chiefs". These NEIPAs were both brewed with different experimental hops. The red using Bio-T Cryo Blend ET HBC 472 & the Blue using Bio-T Cryo Blend ET HBC 692. They both clocked in with a 7.5% ABV.
Matt was drinking Microbrasserie Broadway's "Katana". This NEIPA DDH with Sabro Hops & Ginger was fruity, coconutty & slightly spicy due to the ginger & it had a wonderful mouthfeel! It clocked in at a 7% ABV.

Devastation On The Nation 2020 featuring Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant has been postponed due to the effects of the COVID- 19 Virus. But Daniel DeFonce, the Vox&Hops Alumni behind Metal Festival Tours & Continental Touring has already managed to secure tour dates for Devastation on the Nation 2021 featuring the exact same lineup. Devastation on the Nation 2021 with run from February 11th - March 14th 2021. Mad love & respect to Daniel DeFonce for pulling this together so quickly...I am impressed!

The impact of the COVID- 19 Virus on the entertainment industry is monstrous. Some of your favourite artists may be struggling to get by right now & desperately need your help. The best way to do that is by buying their music, merchandise & other goods. I have created a list of all of the Vox&Hops Almuni's Merchandise Pages for you to peruse so that you can support your favourite artists. Trust me they need it...

It is also essential to support our local Craft Beer Breweries now. If you are going to be drinking craft beer during your time in Social Isolation make sure that it is a Local Craft Beer. It would be a shame if we lost some breweries to COVID- 19...Craft Beer or nothing!
