A podcast series about the stories behind craft beer in the Pacific Northwest
Just over the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in Vancouver, BC is Bridge Brewing Company, Vancouver's first nano-brewery. There are two interviews in this episode, first, with Co-Owner Leigh Stratton and then Brewmaster Kerry Dyson.
I’m visiting Mayne Island, a small community of just over a thousand people located in the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia. Mayne Island Brewing Company opened their doors in December 2016 with small batch, bottle conditioned beers. I spoke with owners Michael Garratt & Annette Witteman.
I spoke with Will Kemper, Co-owner and Brewmaster for Chuckanut Brewery in Bellingham, WA. This operation has seen such growth, they have recently opened another production facility to meet demand.
I’m in Vancouver, BC just off Marine Drive, at a cozy tasting room that features organic beers and other organic treats. Dogwood Brewing opened its doors as Vancouver’s first organic brewery in March of 2015.
I’ve traveled down I-5 in Washington State to the city of Everett. Home to the Boeing Assembly plant, this area has seen growth in recent years, including the craft beer scene. Starting in the back shed in 2009, Justice Brewing is a one man project which is seeing some major expansion later this year.
Back in Bellingham, WA but in the historic neighbourhood of Fairhaven speaking with Stone Throw Brewing Company.
I’m in the neighbourhood of Strathcona in Vancouver, BC. Stranthcona Beer Company opened it's doors in July 2016.
In this episode, I’m in Portland, Oregon. Very excited to be visiting Ecliptic Brewing and speaking with Oregon craft beer legend John Harris. We talk about his history in the Oregon craft beer scene, working with McMenamins Hillsdale Brewpub, being the founding Brewmaster at Deschutes Brewery and his 20 years at Full Sail Brewing. We also talked about, of course, Ecliptic Brewing and his ongoing vision for the project.
I'm in Portland, OR at Ground Breaker Brewing, learning about why they brew 100% gluten-free beers.
My long weekend adventure on Galiano Island.
Going to try something new! Normally I reach out to breweries to book them. This time I'm asking you! Im free M & Th in the Vancouver area 😉
