BAOS: Beer & Other Shhh Podcast

Jun 26, 2023

The third week of Link Up Series 5 brings us back to Ontario, all the way to Kitchener with a true local fave, Counterpoint. Founder Graeme kicks it with Tiff and Cee to chat about the diversity of their staff and customer base, his work with DEI to date, how he collaborates with local businesses to bring a wider awareness to their beers, how he selects who he works with for community collaborations and why his customers often apply for jobs at the brewery. Counterpoint dropped a super fun Link Up beer, a 6.1% milkshake IPA with naranjilla, coconut and lactose - it's citrusy, sweet and creamy. 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.
