My Interview with Erin & Tom from Giesenbräu Bier Co.

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!

Dan sits down with owner Erin Hutton and Head Brewer Tom Giesen of Giesenbräu Bier Co. in New Prague, Minnnesota. Giesenbräu is a community gathering spot that cranks out clinkable beers for all tastes. This interview was almost as good as an ice-cold tankard of Hildy’s Helles. Erin and Tom tell the tale of how their collective love for beer and people led them to open one of my favorite places to visit, Giesenbräu Bier Co. Give a listen, why don’t you? Cheers!
