Back in 2011 when Cee first started his 365 Days of Beer thing (long before the podcast), he took an Ontario beer trip with former co-host Scott, and the first brewery they went to was Nickel Brook. They happened to meet co-founder John Romano, who gave the guys their first-ever private brewery tour, something that they always appreciated.
Fast forward to 2020 and Nickel Brook have updated their branding, they have an incredible barrel program, and they've pumping out fantastic beers seemingly every week. For some reason, this is the first time we've had NB on the podcast, but we finally got it done. Cee hung out with head brewer Ben and marketing guru Liam to get the full NB story, how they've grown over the years, and touched on their rebrand while drinking their new Winter Wizard IPA, barrel-aged sour Uncertainty Principle 7, and the 2020 Kentucky Bastard bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout. Cheers!
