Bryan and Derrick Olson sold their first keg of 8one8 Brewing in 2015, a few short years later they've opened a tasting room, expanded their distribution, and are turning out some great beer. The Unfiltered Gentlemen are live from 8one8 Brewing in Conoga Park, CA, being joined by owners Derrick and Bryan Olson. We talk with the men behind the beer about some of their tasty brews, including their Gravity Hill, Matador Red, Good Day IPA, Valley Girl Blonde and more. In addition to discussing their beer and giving tasting notes, we discuss the history of 8one8 Brewing, how Bryan and Derrick originally started brewing, and their previous careers (spoiler alert, one of them is a rocket scientist).
We also discuss their favorite styles, what hazy's are doing to the industry, the transition from home brewing to professional, obstacles in opening a tasting room and so much more!
The guys also run down our list of rapid fire questions and give us their favorite drunk word.
In Booze News: Brewdog Brewing is starting an airline, there's a new definition for craft brewers, American Troops in Iceland drank all the beer, a free flight for a drunken baggage handler, and more.
Thank you to 8one8 Brewing for having us at their taproom and taking the time to share their beer and thoughts on the industry. If you'd like to visit them, they can be found at 8951 De Soto Ave, Canoga Park, CA and online at www.818brewing.com.
