One of the most unique concepts that we've ever seen in craft beer comes courtesy of Mike Laba and Chris Goddard, the founders of Craft Brand Co., based out of Toronto, ON. What began as a craft beer import agency slowly morphed into a beast unto its own, securing sought-after international contracts with breweries like Omnipollo (Sweden), Mikkeller (Denmark) and Lervig (Norway) to brew onsite in Toronto for the Canadian market.
Cee hung out with Mike and Chris to chat about their deep Ontario craft beer roots, how the agency began, they relayed some hilarious stories from their numerous beer trips around the globe and their philosophy on beer and their team. The fellas crushed some impeccable beers, including Omnipollo's Maz Oat Pale Ale, Omnipollo'z Zodiak NEIPA, Lervig's Back To The 90s India Red Ale, Omnipollo's Bianca Blueberry Maple Pancake Lassi Gose and ended on Omnipollo's Prodromus pastry stout (an exclusive beer for the Ontario market). This was an epic, 4-hour chat that's completely worth sticking around for. Cheers!
