    Episode #15: Link Up | Shehan De Silva of Lost Craft Brewing

    Episode #15: Link Up | Shehan De Silva of Lost Craft Brewing

    Lost Craft were one of Ontario's first-ever BIPOC-owned craft breweries, and long-time listeners will know that they're close friends of the show, so it was key for us to bring them in for week 4 of Link Up's Series 3. Tiff and Cee sat down with Founder Shehan De Silva to chat about what it was like being the "only one in the room" back in 2015 when he started, whether he has faced microaggressions and racism in the beer industry, how they managed to tap into a diverse consumer base early on, and how breweries can do the same organically and authentically. We cracked their Link Up Dry-Hopped Sour, a 4.8% gem with Galaxy and Vista hops in a dope stubby bottle, bursting with stone fruit, crisp green apple and tropical vibes. This one was an important episode - cheers!
    About the Link Up season:
    We're back with a brand new season of BAOS Podcast, and this one is something very special and very close to us. We'll be focusing this entire season on Link Up, a non-profit started by the good folks behind Microbrasserie 5e Baron in Aylmer, QC and Tiffany and Cee here at BAOS and High Season Co. Our aim with this program is to help BIPOC from underrepresented communities learn about and enter the craft beer industry in essentially any area they wish - from a brewing apprentice to taking the Cicerone course for front-of-house opportunities, from hop farming to the yeast lab, from beer media to design and photography, we're here to help diversify an industry that is in dire need of it.

    Episode #103: For The Love Of The Art with Cris Ohama of Hypha Project | Adjunct Series

    Art and craft beer go hand in hand, and Vancouver, BC's Hypha Project are truly taking it to the next level. Co-Founder Cris Ohama sat down with Cee to break down how and why art has played such a huge role in the formation of their brewery, how their events are bringing in new and diverse drinkers to craft beer, their plans for their own brick-and-mortar brewery and art space, and how the scene in BC is growing. They got into Hypha's Nova Galactus, Metatheion, Synchrosentient, and their collab with Bright Eye, Where Eagles Dare. This was a great chat, cheers!

    Episode #102: 8% Is The New 5% with Colleen Quinn of Greater Good Imperial Brewing | Adjunct Series

    You may have seen breweries focused on low ABV beers, but have you ever seen a brewery that only knocks out killer, high-octane brews? Based in Worcester, MA, Greater Good Imperial Brewing is America's first and only brewery entirely obsessed with crafting and perfecting imperial craft beers. Cee hung out with CEO Colleen Quinn to hear all about their mission, how their unique approach to their beer has resonated with their customer base, how they structure their taproom for a safe and fun experience and their future plans. We crushed their flagship Pulp Daddy IPA, Bigg Summer pineapple IPA, their big dog Greylock QDH IPA, Funk Daddy imperial sour, and 55 Funk with passion fruit and guava. This was a great one, cheers!

    Episode #14: Link Up | Luke Pestl, Paige Lindsay and Danysha Harriott of Bellwoods Brewing

    Week 3 of Link Up brings one of the GOAT breweries in Ontario to the table - Bellwoods Brewery! If you're a long-time listener, you'll know how passionate Cee is about Bellwoods, so this was an exciting episode for us. Tiff and Cee hung out with Co-Founder Luke, Head of Marketing Paige, and Marketing's Danysha to hear about their amazing CCIC (Community, Culture, & Inclusion Committee) initiatives, how they've been able to successfully focus on diversity in their staff, and their advice to other breweries looking to do the same. We drank their amazing Link Up Double IPA, which boasts Citra, Loral, Mosaic and Simcoe hops. This was a super insightful conversation - cheers!

    Episode #13: Link Up | Andrew Silver of Fine Balance Brewing

    The second drop of Link Up's Series 3 comes from Kingston, ON's Fine Balance Brewing, and while they're still less than two years old, they've already been making some serious noise in Ontario's craft beer scene. Tiff and Cee hung with Founder Andrew Silver and cracked their gem of a Link Up brew, a juicy 5.5% Pale Ale with Citra, Citra Cryo and Vic Secret hops. They chatted about their quarterly dedication to giving back and how Link Up was a crucial part of that, the community groups they work with to diversify their team, and how they can get the attention of the wider community. Cheers!

Based just outside of Rochester, Mortalis excited drinkers with their highly sought-after pastry stouts and smoothie sours, while catering to most palates in their taproom with fire haze, crispies, and even wheat ales. Co-Founder and Head Brewer Josh Bauerlein and Brewer Jared Cooper join Cee to get the full story on how the hype came to be, they discussed what's in the water in Rochester, their expansion plans and how they get their smoothies so damn perfect. They crushed their Laertes Pilsner, Zeus Double IPA, Hephaestus Double IPA and Hydra Schmoojee A La Mode collab with Imprint. This was amazing, cheers!
