Barrel-aged sour beers are truly the ultimate mark of patience in the beer world, and nobody encapsulates that better than Sean McVeigh of Kanata, ON's Small Pony Barrel Works. The last time we hung with Sean on the podcast was in 2018 so this was a great return for the lord of the sours. A lot has been happening in his world, from the move into small bottles for the LCBO and even canning some special one-offs.
We brought along our fave guest co-hosts Noah Forrest of Beerism and Nathan Lefebvre to hang with Sean, we chatted about all the intricacies and specific challenges of operating a barrel-only brewery during a pandemic, we got into his amazing smoothie sour and how that came about (the only one with a barrel-aged base), and of course, we crushed some of his fire from their 2020 Culture Club releases. This was a fun one, enjoy!
