A Primer on Vodka & Spirits with Elle Rhodes, Director of Sales for Du Nord Social Spirits

A Conversation About Sobriety in the Craft Beer Industry A One Pint Stand

I sit down with Kabel Lefto (Head Brewer at Wabasha Brewing) and Nate Schneider (Vice President of Invictus Brewing & Co-Owner of Trove Brewing) at Arbeiter Brewing to talk about how working in close proximity to alcohol can be challenging for the wellness of people in the craft beverage industry. We talk about taking a break from alcohol or becoming sober altogether. The conversation is enlightening because of Kabel and Nate's extensive experiences in and around the Minnesota craft beer industry. The industry has a responsibility in making the community that we all love and cherish a place for everyone, including those who are choosing a lifestyle that does not include alcohol. This is the first of many conversation we will be having on this podcast about wellness and shining a brighter light on the importance of mental health in the craft beverage industry. I hope you find the conversation thought-provoking. Cheers!

On this episode of A One Pint Stand, I sit down with my friend, Elle Rhodes, the Director of Sales at Du Nord Social Spirits, to get over my confusion about vodka. We enjoyed a wonderful Friday afternoon on the patio at Moscow on the Hill in St. Paul. We enjoyed five different kinds of vodka, as well as an iconic vodka cocktail, the Moscow Mule. I learned so much about spirits in general, but specifically vodka. This will be a recurring segment on A One Pint Stand because we just had too much fun!
