The second episode from our Link Up season was with a good friend of the show, Jeff Talmey, Co-Founder of Town Brewery. Jeff was one of the first people we approached about being part of the Link Up launch series of collaboration beers, and he jumped at the opportunity. Jeff hung out with Tiff and Cee to chat about why he got involved in Link Up, we ran through the beer Town produced, the challenges involved in diversifying the craft beer industry (and in the Durham region specifically), the DEI initiatives Town have had in the past, and why it's important to truly involve the community in their space. An enlightening chat, cheers!
About the Link Up season:
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.
