The third episode from our inaugural Link Up season was with the podcast's #1 returning guest, Derrick Robertson of Montreal's BreWskey. The first Quebec brewery to launch a Link Up beer in the series, BreWskey came out strong with a phenomenal double IPA that truly spoke to their strengths. Derrick kicked it with Tiff and Cee to break down why he decided to take part in the program, the meaning behind the artwork, why they didn't participate in the Black Is Beautiful initiative in 2020, the best ways to approach diversity in the workplace and how inclusion can diversify palates. Enjoy, 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.
