Life is Flantastico! We are excited to finally try the collab beer between 818 Brewing and the homie Chew Your Beer. To celebrate the occasion, we held a live podcast with Bryan and Derrick of 818 Brewing and Chew to discuss the beer, the origin, the adjuncts, and their new pilot system. We also discuss surviving the pandemic, future plans and expansions, favorite beers to make, how we got into craft beer, and listener questions! 


Derrick and Bryan led us on a guided tasting of Flantastico, Valley Girl Blond, SchnuggleZ Hazy IPA, Hellyes lager, and Valhalla Barrel Aged Imperial Stout.


Chew and Derrick talk about how the collab came to be and why it ended up tasting the way it did, from vanilla beans to coffee additions and everything in between. 


Bryan explains what it took to keep a brewery open during the pandemic, lockdown, and even grow the operations. Derrick talks about his most rewarding (and hated) beer to make. The guys tell us about their relationship with Untappd, and how they use it to drive recipe creation. And we find out where everyone started in their drinking career.


We got some great listener questions, including inspiration about the collab, the worst hangover, and when will Chew open his own brewery?


A huge thank you to Bryan and Derrick Olson for allowing us to take over their brewery. Find them @818Brewing and 818brewing.com. Make sure you try some Flantastico! And thanks to Chew Your Beer for inviting us to host the release party; we had a blast! Follow Chew @ChewYourBeerOG_.
