On Sunday last week, I escaped the Bondi Bubble and jumped on the Fast Ferry from Watson’s Bay Wharf across Sydney Harbour, bound for the Northern Beaches. Pumped!
.
I hit lunch in Manly with a poke bowl on the Manly foreshore, enjoyed a short stroll over to Shelly Beach and wrapped the arvo with my fried Maria with storytelling and soaking up the sweeping views of Sydney CBD, Sydney Harbour and the south side of Sydney from North Head, at the mouth of Sydney’s world renown Sydney Harbour.
.
For me, no trip to Manly would be complete without a pit stop at 4 Pines Brewpub at Manly Wharf, as I’m a massive craft beer fan and review brews from around the globe on my @craftbeerlovin’ Instagram account, which I run with one of my best mates, Nate, who’s a soya bean and corn farmer, based near Peoria, about 2.5-3 hours south west of Chicago. Anyway, I washed down the day trip to Manly with a delicious 4 Pines Keller Door Pomegranate Sour and a pint of 4 Pines In Season IPA, both of which are downright delicious! (reviews below).
.
At sunset, I jumped a ride back to Watson’s Bay and the Manly Fast Ferry had ice-cold 4 Pines American-style Pale Ale bottles in the fridge. Absolute genius and sunset beers on Sydney Harbour was just the perfect end to the day!
.
I have lived in Sydney for 4 years, it’s rather spectacular and there is nothing quite like taking the time to be a tourist in your own city! It quite honestly still blows my mind every single time!
.
Cheers and Happy Friday y’all!

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!

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!
