What could be better than an episode about beer! Dave Nornes has been brewing for over twenty years, and his talents have taken him to Crested Butte’s Irwin Brewing company, which opened in early 2017. We talk about Dave’s start as a brewmaster in Colorado Springs, a brewing hiatus in Rossland, British Columbia, and his return to Crested Butte. We recorded this episode onsite, and the new brewery is a beautiful facility, but more importantly it’s brewing some great beer (And sorry for the background noise in the first half of the episode- it gets better I promise!). I’d recommend the Stout or the Brown Ale if you’re getting your first taste of an Irwin beer, among others. We discuss the brewing process, some of Dave’s favorite styles, and some of the new brews he’s working on. If you love beer, you’ll want to give this one a listen!
