Talking beer and getting weird with Linds and Tif.
Ep. 19: Natasha Peiskar (@Hoparella)
Natasha Peiskar is President & Co-Founder of Pink Boots Society Canada, an Advanced Cicerone, BJCP Judge; she's worked as a chemical analyst, craft beer bartender, beer sales; she's been a head brewer and is now a Production Supervisor at Canada Malting Co.
She's also sober.
In this episode, we discuss the challenges of the industry and how it can overtake your identity, the journey to find and define yourself outside of beer and we open up the conversation on being sober-curious.
Can you be sober and still keep (and love) your career in beer?

Ep. 16: Luke Robertson, Short Jaw Brewing: Podcast Dad.
Tif and Linds decide to diversify the pod a bit and chat to Luke Robertson- a cis-white male and brewery owner of Short Jaw Brewing in Westport, New Zealand (Luke also happens to be a great friend, and is responsible for getting them into the podcast game).
Luke left Melbourne to move to his hometown on the west coast of New Zealand's South Island after purchasing the brewery in 2021- and they discuss the surprises, wins and frustrations that have come with owning a small town brewery.
There's also a blind tasting that throws Tif and Linds for a bit of a loop.
Find Short Jaw here .
And much thanks to our new recording home, Near and Far Bar ! Go follow them on Instagram !

AND BLIND TASTINGS ARE BACK!!!!!
*NOTE: Some of the sound has a bit of a hum due to a glycol chiller kicking on (at about the 10 minute mark, it does shut off at the 13 minute mark).
