BAOS: Beer & Other Shhh Podcast

Aug 18, 2021

We're back with a brand new season of BAOS Podcast, and this one is something very special and very close to us. We'll be focusing this entire season on Link Up, a non-profit started by the good folks behind Microbrasserie 5e Baron in Aylmer, QC and Tiffany and Cee here at BAOS and High Season Co. Our aim with this program is to help BIPOC from underrepresented communities learn about and enter the craft beer industry in essentially any area they wish - from a brewing apprentice to taking the Cicerone course for front-of-house opportunities, from hop farming to the yeast lab, from beer media to design and photography, we're here to help diversify an industry that is in dire need of it.

To launch Link Up, we've collaborated with 6 partner breweries for 6 amazing beers over 6 weeks in August and September 2021, starting with one of the leaders in giving back in Canadian craft beer, Dominion City. Co-Founder Josh McJannett and CFO Stephane Joachim joined Tiffany and Cee to discuss their Link Up beer, why they got involved, why diversity is important to them, how having a diverse team has helped them get to where they are today and why they've continued to be so community-focused. This was a great one, cheers!
