Rad podcast chats!

Yesterday arvo I sat down with Pro Surfers Taj Burrow, Jay Davies and Dino Adrian at Hotel Ravesis in Bondi Beach to introduce a brand new Western Australian beer, Honest Ale, to the East Coast of Australia. 

Honest Ale was born in the Margaret River region of Western Australia in May of 2017 and is the product of these three west oz natives in partnership with the crew at Black Brewing Co.

I actually grew up in Perth and every summer holidays we’d head down to the south coast of WA to Busselton (or Busso as the locals call it) in the Margaret River region and I have so many happy memories of that magical part of the world!

Inspiring chats as Taj, Jay and Dino share their earliest ever childhood memories, what the Honest Ale name means and what Black Brewing Co did to bring their dreams into reality and their advice for any one of you who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.

Super chats, super night out with the boys in Bondi Beach. Let’s get into it!

Boom, Bash, Yeah! BRŁO Brewery, Berlin. LIVE craft beer podcast! 🇩🇪🍻✨

Berlin’s craft beer scene is alive and well! Last week on my very last day on German soil, I treated myself to one last craft beer and streetart walking tour around Berlin to sample some of this magical city’s delicious craft beers and take in the history of Berlin just one last time before jetting out to Australia.

My final stop for the day was BRŁO Brewery. Earlier in the week, I’d sampled their delicious Pale Ale on tap at St Oberholz in Rosenthaler Platz (the co-working space where Soundcloud made its first steps) and wanted to get a taste for the rest of their range.

Much to my delight, while the BRŁO founders weren’t on site, Devin Duffy Meade, self-confessed craft beer nerd, BRŁO’s sales & marketing dude and expert tour guide was in on his days off and I was like.. FUCK it! Let’s record a quick 26 minute podcast! 

Kick-ass chats and if you’ve ever wanted to know more about Berlin’s craft beer scene then THIS is the place to wet your whistle! Oh, and we tell you the awesome story behind what BRŁO means too. Get amongst it!

BRŁO Brewery, Berlin. LIVE craft beer podcast!

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co owner & founder, Ken Grossman, joins Hot & Delicious Rocks The Planet! | Innovation, Advanced Energy Tech, Sustainability & Business Leadership.

Posted on Updated on

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #132 Ken Grossman (Sierra Nevada Brewing Co owner & founder). 

From little things, big things grow…

Inspiring founder & owner of Northern Californian brewery Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, Ken Grossman, is a man of passion, determination and innovation. 

From humble roots, as a small West Coast craft brewery with a goal to produce 2,000 hectolitres of beer a year, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co is now a bi-coastal North American business that champions innovation, advanced energy technology & sustainability, business leadership and is now brewing 1.7 million hectolitres of beer a year from their West Coast and East Coast breweries.

After learning to brew from the father of a close friend at a young age, Ken Grossman opened a homebrew supply store in downtown Chico, called The Home Brew Shop in 1976, before selling it in 1978, founding Sierra Nevada Brewing Co in 1979 and releasing their first batch of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co beer in 1980, which was an American Stout.

At the time, there was no such thing as small-scale or “micro” brewery equipment in the USA and it was way too expensive to import from countries like Germany, so everything required for the brewery had to be repurposed or custom built, with Grossman travelling all over California and Oregon in search of stainless still tanks/equipment and teaching himself refrigeration and welding, so that he could fashion the majority of the new brewery out of recycled dairy equipment.

In today’s inspiring chat, brought to you by @craftbeerlovin’ on Instagram and the team at Phoenix Beers, we explore vast-ranging topics including Ken Grossman as an individual, the explosion and evolution of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, his love of hiking, sailing, fishing and diving and how Sierra Nevada got its name (it’s not as 100% obvious as you think), Sierra Nevada’s partnership with monks in a small Northern California town – brewing a series of Ovila Abbey ales inspired by Belgian Trappist monks that helped raise millions of dollars for the monastery, the brewery’s approach to innovation including the installation of an array over 10,000 solar panels and fuel cells to reduce their environmental impact in 2007 to 2017, where the transition to gas turbines and introduction of Tesla Powerpack batteries now means that Sierra Nevada produce 80-90% of their own electricity onsite! 

We chat about Ken’s first trip down to Australia for Good Beer Week 2017, the creation of Sierra Nevada’s Tropical Torpedo IPA, the introduction of their 2nd brewery on the east coast in the mountains of North Carolina to reduce shipping impact and the greenfield site, which enabled Sierra Nevada to minimise the impact in its construction and design, the process that the 5-10 new small batch Sierra Nevada beers brewed every single week have to go through to become part of the core range of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co beers and a teaser of the latest beers that are soon to be joining the Sierra Nevada family including goses, sours & more!

A wonderful journey and inspirational tale of a man who has pursued his passions tenaciously and evolution from one of the smallest of businesses in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges to one of the largest, most successful craft beer breweries in America!

Let’s get into it!

Small Business Podcast: Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint founder, Tony Gosden.

Posted on Updated on

Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint founder, Tony Gosden, joins Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! in Sydney.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #130 Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint founder (Tony Gosden). 

I moved to Bondi Beach late last year after falling in love with the Sydney Eastern Suburbs beach lifestyle and I made a decision to stay.

One of the attractions of Bondi Beach for me is not only that I now live 5 minutes walk from Bondi Beach, with spectacular coastal walks and lunchtime swims part of my regular routine, but I have become friends with and have access to a wealth of like-minded, ambitious, progressive and creative individuals that work and reside in this beautiful suburb of Sydney.

So many in this local global beachside community possess a mentality that encompasses an understanding that 9-5 is a primitive way to exist and there is another way to achieve success, whilst living life to the fullest! (as we speak I am sitting here at the home office in my board shorts having started my working week at midday on a Monday).

One of those inspiring peeps in my life is the human embodiment of the word ‘community’ and the creator/owner of Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint, Tony Gosden. Hailing from a music industry background as a promoter and band manager, Tony created Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint as a salute to the rock’n’roll lifestyle, with a diverse mix of platinum records, graffiti/local art, march and books hanging on the walls of this Glenayr Avenue restaurant, Young Henrys beer on tap, a mouth-watering menu of burgers named after indie Australian bands and awesome tunes cranked all day while you eat, drink and be merry.

In today’s show, we chat about founding your own business and the values that you bring to your business as an individual, Tony’s background in the music industry and the stories behind the array of band-inspired burgers including the Classic Cog, Trippin’ Seahorse (my fave), Lost Valentino, Just a Jezabel and Johnny Collide, why Tony moved to Bondi 20 years ago and never left, his sense of community and partnering with local Sydney businesses like Young Henrys and Field To Fork to ensure we can all thrive and grow together and much, much more.

And if this alone isn’t enough to entice you to get inside the mind of this successful Aussie businessman and to download this chat, then try this on for size… Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint is the most ordered food in Australia on app/website Deliveroo! Get it in your mouth and get it in your ears!

As one of the pioneers of the burgeoning Brisbane craft beer scene, molecular bioscientist Mark Howes and the partners of Newstead Brewing Co founded their brewery in December 2013 and Mark had to make the rapid transition from 40 litre home-brewer to head brewer of Newstead Brewing Company.
