From Wall St financial trader to Green Beacon Brewing Co co-founder, Adrian Slaughter is blazing a trail in Brisbane’s craft beer industry.
 
A few weeks back Adrian & I sat down over a pint of the latest Green Beacon creation, their seasonal Half Mast India Session Ale and explored a range of amazing topics from how India Pale Ale earned its name back in the Indian colonial days, his mother-in-law Penny Coles, who was the founder one of the first female commercial real ale breweries in the UK, being in New York when shit hit the fan during the GFC, the new Green Beacon brewery, falling in love and cutting his teeth in the Brooklyn and New York craft beer scene.

Richard Branson, skin melanoma and the Million Dollar Beard – Jimmy Niggles | Podcast Episode #104

Posted on Updated on

Jimmy Niggles - Beard Season founder joins the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast in Sydney.

Beard Season is a yearly event dedicated to Jimmy Niggles’ close friend, Wes Bonny, who died in 2009 of cancer just three months after being diagnosed with melanoma. 
 
The following winter Jimmy Niggles and his mates played what is now an annual footie game in memory of Wes and in 2011 grew their beards in his honour through the winter, in an event they dubbed Beard Season.
 
Beard Season evolved has over the past 5-6 years into an ongoing campaign to spread the word about how important it is to check your skin for abnormalities that might lead to cancer only a yearly and to raise awareness of what to look for, particularly as most people, myself included, don’t know that the most people at risk from melanoma are blokes aged 18-45.
 
On Wednesday night just gone, Jimmy and I sat down at for a Bronte Beach sunset of red wine, cheese and dips and recorded a podcast about skin cancer, Richard Branson, Graham Norton, the #MillionDollarBeard, dreams with dates & much much more.
 
It’s inspiring to think that what was an event set-up to commemorate a good mate & top bloke,   has grown into a global phenomenon and it was just wonderful to spend with an individual who is striving to spend a large chunk of their time making a positive impact on the lives of others.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #102 Jaron Mitchell (founder) – 4 Pines Brewing Co. 

From the minute I walk in through the front door of 4 Pines Brewing Co HQ on the shores of the Northern Beaches of Sydney, the whole planned landscape and direction of today’s podcast interview changes markedly as I observe Jaron walk through the office saying hello to and addressing each and every individual staff member in the 4 Pines office by name as he makes his way towards me.
 
Throughout our time together I feel like one of those individuals who’s ever spent one-on-one time in a room with the likes of Bill Clinton or Tom Cruise… when the individual sitting before you is so clearly present and engaged in the conversation and the moment.
 
We enjoy vast ranging chats around the evolution of 4 Pines from a 500L brewpub in Manly to being the first beer in space, learning about sour beers & different set-ups from the best in the business at Russian River Brewery in California, challenging the status quo from a young age, business management styles, the values and personality traits that drive your business decisions, leadership culture, staying true to your brand and values and so much more.
 
And if you take anything at all from this podcast, I guarantee you it’ll be this… The Quest Never Ends… The best ideas haven’t even been invented yet!

Founded in by Sydneysider Will Edwards, Archie Rose Distilling Co was inspired by both the distilling industry of Tasmania and the urban distilleries that call New York and London home.

In March 2015, Archie Rose Distilling Co. became the very first multi-spirit distillery in Sydney in over 160 years, with a mission to honour Sydney’s rich, spirit-making past by producing handcrafted, premium and unique spirits, including gin, vodka and whisky.

In today’s podcast we chat about leaving a job you hate to pursue your passions, what it takes, Luke’s fascinating journey of discovery from the urban distilleries of Brooklyn to farmer distillers in Tasmania, Archie Rose Distilling Co’s world first Tailored Spirits range, which allows customers to create their very own gin, vodka or whisky (including their name on the bottle) and the brand new Archie Rose Launches Distiller’s Strength Gin – launched last month and packed with fifteen individually distilled botanicals, including fresh pears from Orange, NSW (Will’s family’s home town), rose petals, elderflower, pronounced juniper and distilled honey direct from Archie Rose’s rooftop beehives.

Oh, and you heard it here first folks! In November,Archie Rose Distilling Co are all set to launch yet another amazing Archie Rose product called Virgin Cane Spirit! (it’s rum but you can’t call it rum… oh wait… 😃✨).

Exciting podcast with this Aussie go-getter who’s taking Australian spirits to the world!

Nomad Brewing Co co-founder Kerrie Abba bringing Italian lifestyle to Australian craft beer | Podcast Interview

Posted on Updated on

The first time I tried Nomad Brewing Co’s Long Reach Saison, I was on what I thought was a date at the Champagne Room upstairs from one of my favourite bars in Sydney, The Winery in Surry Hills. That minute the magic touched my lips (the beer), my internal monologue was like… “What IS this magnificence?”
 
Flash forward 4 weeks and I find myself at a craft beer launch in Surry Hills (Sydney) engaged in earnest conversation with co-founder and managing director of Nomad Brewing Co, Kerrie Abba, bonding over time we’ve both spent time living in the northern Italian region of Piemonte at the base of the Alps (where FIAT’s founded, the 2006 Winter Olympics were held and the home of Ferraro chocolate).
 
The very next Friday afternoon I’m sitting here in the ‘Transit Lounge’, Nomad’s tasting bar at the brewery, sipping on Nomad’s Freshie Salt & Pepper Gose and reminiscing with Kerrie about the joy of Italian culture and love of life that we were both fortunate enough to experience by living in Italia and the impact it’s made on our respective lives.
 
For Kerrie, it’s become not only a way of life, but her business and lifeblood. 2 years ago, Nomad Brewing Co launched as the brainchild of Kerrie, her husband Johnny Latta and Global Top 100 brewer, Leonardo Di Vincenzo.
 
The owners of Australia’s largest craft beer distributors, Experience IT beverages, Kerrie and Johnny persuaded Brooks Carretta, Leonardo’s brewing protege at Birra Del Borgo, to join them in Australia to set-up the Nomad business and come on board as their head brewer. With all their brew kit all imported from Italy and determined to brew using native Australian ingredients, Nomad Brewing have created an array of amazing beers designed to delight all palates.
 
We enjoy vast ranging chats about the Barolo wine region (King of wines, wine of kings), the fascinating story behind the creation of Freshie Salt & Pepper Gose, Nomad Brewing’s ‘So Caliente’ collaboration with Steve Wagner from Stone Brewing, her various and varied businesses and what inspired Kerrie to jet half-way across the world to live in a small town in Italy.
 
Super, super, SUPER podcast for you ears & I can’t wait to catch-up with Kerrie again.
 
Lets get into it!

In less than 2 weeks time, Aussie pop rock quartet Little Sea will launch the world’s first, fully digital concert performed and broadcast live from Twitter Australia HQ in Sydney, which will be watched around the world from Sydney to Paris, from London to New York and created in partnership with Twitter Australia to launch the band’s brand new EP “On Loop”.
 
In today’s Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast, we chat with Little Sea about their beginnings in the western suburbs of Sydney, where Oliver (guitarist) and Leighton (drummer) grew up and first met, using the Twitter platform to connect with and build a large scale audience of peers, friends and fans across the globe, jetting to California to record their first EP just a few days after signing a new record deal, plans to relocate to Los Angeles and what makes them tick and drives their hunger for success.
 
Wicked hangs over a few Coopers Pale Ale beers with the Little Sea lads, who have a collective Twitter presence of over 200,000 and hit the #1 trending topic on Twitter last month in more than 10 counties around the world, when they they launched new single “Cut It Out” last month and this world first live Twitter performance.
 
Super interesting music industry podcast on how to tap into social media to build your brand and global online presence.
 
Let’s get into it! Spread the word!

Sounds Australia – Export Music Producer, Glenny G, taking Australian music to the world | Podcast Interview

Posted on Updated on

Glenny G joins the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast in Sydney.

Ever since my early 20s, I’ve based my life choices and career around pursuing what I love in life and Sounds Australia Export Music Producer, Glenn Dickie is a guy who epitomises this.
 
Glenn Dickie AKA Glenny G spent 12 years as a radio presenter at 3RRR in Melbourne and then another 12 at EMI Music Australia in A&R/Promotions/Marketing working with artists such as Lily Allen, Katy Perry, Sigur Ros, You Am I, signing acts such Miami Horror, Ricki-Lee, Oh Mercy and was part of a team that signed The Cat Empire, Airbourne, Alison Wonderland and hip hop acts 360 and PEZ. 
 
He now travels the world with Sounds Australia as Export Music Producer taking the very best of Australian music to all the world’s largest music conferences including SXSW, Canadian Music Week, The Great Escape (UK), Americana, Music Matters (Singapore), Reeperbahn (Germany), CMJ Music Marathon and many, many more.
 
Amongst hundreds of others, Courtney Barnett, Chet Faker, Flume and Vance Joy all played Sounds Australia showcases in their first year of export and benefitted from repeat Sounds Australia performance opportunities in the year following.
 

Anyway, my friendship with GG started back in 2011, when the sister of a friend of mine from my Emirates Airline days checked into the Bowery Ballroom in New York at an event called The Aussie BBQ, with a line-up featuring DZ Deathrays, Paul Dempsey, Bliss N Eso, Blue King Brown and a whole swag of the most amazing Australian musicians.

I was like… “Wow… what a line-up… Whats this all about??”
 
I immediately Googled The Aussie BBQ, got in touch with The Aussie BBQ organisers (Glenny G and Aussie journalist/music industry stalwart Mary Mihelakos) and next minute you know I am jetting over to Austin (Texas) in 2013 to shoot photography/produce social media at The Aussie BBQ and whole swag of other Sounds Australia events. I then returned to the USA for 3 months earlier this year, where I recorded a number of podcasts, shot photos of Michelle Obama’s keynote speech with Queen Latifah and Missy Elliot on #LetGirlsLearn, Vance Joy’s US tour at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Wolfmother’s SXSW packed house at Easy Tiger and much, much more (that’s actually the short version… seriously).
 
I’ve met so many wonderful people through GG and his amazing partner, Van Picken (Comes With Fries), so I was stoked to catch-up with him last week at APRA/AMCOS HQ in Ultimo, Sydney. They have both made an impact on my career & in my life. And I’m just one person in the Australian music industry… Imagine that at scale!
 
Super chats, brother & thanks for making the time. I hope that all you guys listening enjoy this podcast is much as I did. Awesome hangs!

23 degrees and the blue skies are shining in Sydney as I sit down for a beer & a podcast with Young Henrys Brewery & Distillery, co-founder, Oscar McMahon. 
 
Founded in 2012, it’s clear that Oscar’s values and passion for doing what you love in life are reflected in his business, as what started as a small batch brewery in iconic Sydney suburb, Newtown, has evolved into a myriad of connected, community-focused projects that encompass the Young Henrys Brewery & bar in Newtown, The Unicorn Hotel in Paddington, the launch of a new distillery as part of the brewery and this Sunday, Oscar McMahon & his team, held a launch event at Young Henrys in partnership with Pingala and the people of to become Sydney’s first community solar co-operative, reducing the carbon footprint of his business by committing to install community-funded solar panels on the roof of the brewery.
 
So apart from making pretty damn tasty beers (I was at Young Henrys Brewery just 2 weeks ago myself), Oscar McMahon is a super inspirational guy and for any budding entrepreneur with a idea burning a hole in their brains, then this podcast is a fantastic place to start.
