Oh boy, this one went a little beyond the Pale Ale so to say. Just about my favorite brewery to date, even outside of Oklahoma, Roughtail has been cranking out "AGGRESSIVE" IPA's and beers for the past 3 years. Jeff 'The Stash' Caillouette is the Business Outreach Specialist that helps get Roughtail beer into all your favorite watering holes. Matt Denham is the head brewer when he's not picking hop pellets out of his beard. We had too good a time catching up personally and discussing all things brewing including the new Adaptation series and an Imperial stout to the lineup.
If you make it through those shenanigans and like to hear more of these types of podcasts just let me know on the Beer is OK Facebook page. These are broadcast on the Stitcher App for free and on iTunes. If you have a second to hit the thumbs up in the Stitcher app and give the podcast a review I'd be ever grateful. It'll keep others aware that we are crafting a community of good beer drinkers in OK.
What's your dream? your passion? Can you easily answer it or do you have to think about it? I'm still finding my purpose but there are some that know once it hits them. John Elkins shed off his role as an aircraft mechanic after discovering the "Joys of Homebrewing" as Papazzian so eloquently put it all those years ago. The public has benefited greatly with his simple hop forward pale ale, to the easy drinking saison La Ferme and his complex imperial stout Nemesis with all its barrel and coffee variations. I'm fortunate to have met John before and finally found some time to sit and document this journey he has taken upon himself to do what he loves.
