Kevin Welch has always been the sort to toot his own horn, literally. In 2011, he left the professional world of classical music to follow his passion for Belgian-style beers by opening Boom Island Brewing in Minneapolis. He has brewed a cornucopia of flavorful beers ever since.
In this episode of Hop Notes, the music of Belgium's most popular composer, Cesar Franck, is paired with Welch's popular Brimstone Belgian Tripel.
