BAOS: Beer & Other Shhh Podcast

Nov 6, 2019

Vermont is a truly special place to the BAOS team, and back in September 2018 we partnered with the good folks at Tourism Vermont to hang out in the Green Mountain state and interview some breweries. One pleasant surprise was 14th Star, a military-themed brewery in St. Albans about 10 miles from the Canadian border. We had a fantastic chat with Head Brewer Dan - who has since departed, and I kept calling him Dave - and CEO Andrea for almost 3 hours, and when that happens, it means we really got along.

It also helped that the beers were fantastic, they have a solid range of styles and do them all quite well, with some faves including their raspberry sour Vermonter Weiss, their NEIPA B-72 and their classic Maple Breakfast Stout. Enjoy this throwback!


One of the closest towns to the Canadian border, St. Albans, VT certainly doesn't get the love it deserves in the craft beer world. 14th Star are the shining stars (see what we did there?) of the town, growing from humble beginnings as the brainchild of two military veterans to one of the most respected and consistent breweries in one of the most lauded states in beer. We hung out with CEO Andrea and Brewmaster Dan (not Dave) to chat about all things beer in Vermont. Cheers!

Beers Reviewed: 14th Star Oktoberfest; 14th Star Raspberry Vermonter Weiss; 14th Star Follow Me IPA; 14th Star Red Wine Barrel Aged Vermonter Weiss; 14th Star Maple Breakfast Stout; 14th Star Valor Ale.
