    Episode #162: Quincy Bones with Steve "Bebo" Pilotto and Chris Steininger of Third Moon Brewing + Nathan Lefebvre of NathanDoesBeer | Adjunct Series

    Episode #162: Quincy Bones with Steve "Bebo" Pilotto and Chris Steininger of Third Moon Brewing + Nathan Lefebvre of NathanDoesBeer | Adjunct Series

    The most epic podcast of all time was our first episode with (arguably) the most hyped brewery in Ontario, Third Moon, back in October of 2020. That episode came in at around 4 hours and 40 minutes, and Co-Founder Chris gave us a memorable tour of his incredible beer basement. We finally had them back on, and you already know we had to break some records. Landing at just over 5 hours, Bebo and Chris hung out with Cee and Nate to catch up on all things Third Moon since 2020, they dug into some newer styles that they've been doing (lagers, smoothies), their brewery and team expansion, how their barrel program has grown, the insane power of Untappd over the craft beer business, their approach to packaging, and they touched on the Ontario beer taxation issue. They cracked six absolute gems - Kills Pilsner, Rise Pale Ale, Midnight Kills Dark Lager, Love Lies Bleeding (Bulldog Comet), Barrel-Aged Kills (2023), and Quintuple Bone Tree IPA, fondly known as Quincy Bones. Epic af as always - we hope you make it through!

    Episode #161: Naur, I Wanna Gaur Haurme with Dereck Hales and Brendan Guild of Bad Shepherd Brewing | Adjunct Series

    Episode #161: Naur, I Wanna Gaur Haurme with Dereck Hales and Brendan Guild of Bad Shepherd Brewing | Adjunct Series

    Whenever the pod comes full circle, it's a beautiful thing. We first had Brendo on the pod back in Episode #29 of the original series when he ran The Public Brewery in Melbourne, Australia. When we reached out to get Dereck of Bad Shepherd back on, we were stoked to learn that Brendo had joined the team. Dereck and Brendan hung out with Cee to chat about landing their Double Choc Hazelnut Brown Ale in the LCBO in Ontario, how the Aussie beer scene has grown over the years and comparisons with Canada, they broke down the voluntary administration process that the business recently went through, how Aussie consumer brands are commoditizing and how it relates to beer, and whether there will ever be a Bad Shepherd in Canada. They got into the Double Choc Hazelnut Brown Ale, of course, and two versions of their Alkonost Russian Imperial Stout - one from 2019 (Cee) and one from 2021 (Dereck and Brendo). This was a banger, cheers!

    Episode #160: The Cost Of Brewing Craft Beer with Troy Baxter of Badlands Brewing + Tiffany Alexis of LiquidxHappiness / High Season Co. | Adjunct Series

    Episode #160: The Cost Of Brewing Craft Beer with Troy Baxter of Badlands Brewing + Tiffany Alexis of LiquidxHappiness / High Season Co. | Adjunct Series

    This episode was a milestone in a bunch of ways - it's the highest podcast episode number we've gotten to ever; it's the first in-person pod we've done in the Adjunct Series; and it was the first time a brewer came to our home for a chat. Love it. Troy Baxter of Badlands hung out with Cee and Tiff to talk about everything surrounding the costs of craft beer, including the hop and grain harvest issues, why beer prices rarely move, big beer costs vs craft costs, why some beers cost more than others, how inflation has affected beer, Ontario vs Alberta tax rates, beer sales over the years, and some deeper finance talk around CPI, economics and money supply. They got into some of Troy's home-roasted Brazillian coffee beans via Morning Roast, along with two Badlands beers - Badlands Pils and Bike Tree (2024). This was an extremely valuable pod - cheers!

    Episode #159: Breaking Beer with Greg Thompson of Prison Break Brewing | Adjunct Series

    Episode #159: Breaking Beer with Greg Thompson of Prison Break Brewing | Adjunct Series

    In almost 9 years of craft beer podcasting, we don't think we've seen a story quite like this one. Greg Thompson served 22 years in both state and federal prisons in the US for drug crimes and has come out the other side with a prison-themed brewery. Coming home in 2016, Greg has been working on Prison Break since then - an uphill battle for an ex-convict trying to go legit. Greg and Cee chatted about his wild story including some crazy moments in prison, whether the prison-focused TV shows are accurate, how Greg and his business partner came up with the idea to start a brewery, his wins securing tap handles in bikini bars around Riverside and the OC in California, how he got a brewer who worked on Firestone Walker's 805 Blonde Ale to help create his flagship beer Shanked, his work in music, film and books, and their funding campaign to grow the brewery. They cracked some Prison Break Shanked Blonde Ales for this gem of a conversation - cheers!

    Episode #158: Quality Is The New Hype with Chris Farmer of Banks Brewing | Adjunct Series

    Episode #158: Quality Is The New Hype with Chris Farmer of Banks Brewing | Adjunct Series

    One of our fave breweries back home in Australia is Banks Brewing (formerly known as Mr. Banks Brewing), and since it's been a few years since we last touched base, we were well overdue. Founder Chris and Cee chatted about Banks' recent name change and rebrand, the state of the Australian craft beer scene, why quality is the new hype, whether Australia has "hype chasers" like North America, the origin of the Oat Cream IPA in Australia, why LUKR pours are amazing, how the Aussie excise tax works, their shared love of third wave coffee, why breweries in Australia are closing, and how beer distribution works Down Under. Cee got into two beers from Banks - 60% Of The Time It Works Every Time Triple IPA, and Don't Chase Me I'm Full Of Chocolate Pastry Stout. Chris didn't drink as two double-digit ABV brews at 1pm wouldn't be so good on a work day. This was fascinating - cheers!

    Episode #157: How Can Craft Beer Win? with Shehan De Silva of Lost Craft / High Park Brewing + Tiffany Alexis of LiquidxHappiness / High Season Co. | Adjunct Series

    Episode #157: How Can Craft Beer Win? with Shehan De Silva of Lost Craft / High Park Brewing + Tiffany Alexis of LiquidxHappiness / High Season Co. | Adjunct Series

    A brewery owner who has to be one of the most featured guests on the podcast, Shehan De Silva is now the owner of not just one craft brewery but two, plus a new taproom. Shehan joins Cee and Tiff to discuss the recent acquisition of High Park Brewery and the merged taproom with Lost Craft, their foray into ready-to-drink beverages and spirits, why the liquor industry is one of the hardest to break into, the future of craft beer, the current Ontario beer taxation issue and his take on it all, the Beer Store Master Framework Agreement ending, why craft breweries should all be focusing on securing new drinkers rather than only appealing to the current crowd, and they answered some of the questions Tiff and Cee had from Episode #154. They got into six bangin' bevvies, including their Dejado Tequila Soda Lime, Dejado Tequila Soda Grapefruit, Pink Gin Fizz, Peach Gin Fizz, Dejado Spicy Margarita and Lost Craft Coastal Wave IPA. This was a great one - cheers!
