Episode #11: Twisted Manzanita Ales & Spirits, Part 2



Part two of our wonderful episode with Twisted Manzanita Ales & Spirits.  Greg interviews Nina Izadi, Daniel Cady, and Jake Pitman.  Daniel is the head brewer of Twisted Manzanita Ales, Jake is the head distiller of Twisted Manzanita Spirits, and Nina is in charge of marketing and well, she knows a lot about beer.


Part two we talk about the collaboration of Alesmith and Mikkeller.  Alesmith is moving out of their current location into a bigger one and decided to sell the current location to Mikkeller.  But not only are they transferring the lease over, they “might” be helping Mikkellar brew beer at that location.  We also chat about how Twisted Manzanita uses barrels and regenerates them for new projects.

Bonus content!  We have a drink-off between Ballast Point’s Sculpin and Big Eye IPA.  Our friends at The Perfect Pour podcast made an very strong statement that no one likes Big Eye and that Ballast Point should just stop producing it.  So we decided to drink them side-by-side and see who the real winner is.  Some of us were surprised by the outcome.
