[18] Standard Brewing is Removing the Pretense

March 7, 2019

Justin built a brewery that all our other brewer friends keep telling us about. Standard brewing is making great beer out of a great pub in the Central District. It's a neighborhood focused spot with a top tier chef and old Seattle feel. We talk about community focused spots, how Seattle is changing, and how he's had to make some tough decisions to make the best pub he can for the neighborhood.

Special guest Andy from Urban Family joins us!

[10] Spencer from Space!

October 26, 2018

Spencer from Seattle talks Space

We had a cosmic conversation with Spencer Anunsen (first time guest, long time listener), who is a mechanical engineer at Synchronous. Synchronous is a company doing work in the space industry whose website boasts the tagline, “building the barely possible”.

Spencer talks building trebuchets, is actually from Seattle, and has great taste in beer.

We talked with him at length about his childhood in Seattle (how weird!), his work with the Mars Curiosity Rover project as an intern at Jet Propulsion Laboratories, the privatized space industry, the point of mining asteroids, billionaires and their rockets, future space missions and much, much more. It was a hell of a time.

[09] Urban Family Brewing - Community Focused, Innovative Beer

October 9, 2018

Thank you to Urban Family Brewing for letting us hang out with them! We had an awesome time.

Urban Family is a whole new brewery from when it opened boasting the same great name. We talked about Andy’s journey in taking it over with Isaac, essentially rebooting the brewery. We talked beer (of course), distribution, brewing, community, and creativity.

From their website:

We’re a small craft brewery located in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. We have an eclectic focus on creating beer and strive constantly for innovation. You may not see the same beer every time you visit but we try to utilize fresh ingredients, complex yeast strains, and interesting hop profiles.

We were founded on the principles of creating something as a family. Working together to make beer that represents who we are, and what we love. We may not all be related, but family is what you make it.

They did not brew the same beer twice in 2017!

Furthermore, we ate cheese together.

Also, Patrick is a marine biologist, he wants a centrifuge, and he hates the music you listened to in high school.
