  We first got to know West Town’s Forbidden Root last October when we had the opportunity to feature one of my favorite beers of all time, Snoochie Boochies, as our Beer Drop. Since then, the brewery has made a few key changes - most notably bringing on a new head brewer, Nick Williams, and launching a fresh series of beers - so naturally, it was time for a revisit! We recently chatted with Nick to catch up on what’s new at FR, what makes their hazy beers so damn good, get a glimpse into daily life at the brewery, and of course, the skinny on this week’s beer - the juicy Ghost Tropic from their hazy series. Read on for our conversation, and be sure to order up your Ghost Tropic now - this release will be gone again before you know it. Cheers!
