Carlos Toma is 26 and He Owns Throne Brewery. This Is An Interesting Conversation.
https://brewmance.beer/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Throne-Brewing-Podcast-FULL2.mp3 On The Brewmance podcast, we talk to Carlos Toma. He bought a brewery at the age of 23 and has been running Throne Brewing for the past three years. The Brewmance brings people together for well-craft conversation over a drink. What can we learn from a 26-year old entrepreneur? A ton. Carlos shows a great go-get-it attitude and he tells Mike Russell & Rob Hunter he’s never satisfied. That means he’s always pushing for more. Carlos’ background is pretty interesting too. His parents owned convenience stores. One of them had a ton of craft beer and a growler filling station. That’s how he learned to love craft beer. So much so he bought his own brewery. On the podcast, we sip Throne’s Blood Orange IPA. If you see it, grab it. We’ll tell you more about it at the end of the podcast. Join us.

We also learn more about New Zealand’s preferred game of cricket (it’s confusing) and the Kiwi’s beer scene. Rob met the couple on a beer tour in Prague and they have remained friends since. So this is another fun conversation over a beer. Join us. Mike and Rob drink Behemoth Brewing’s Shower Beer. This is a really good beer Charlie and Scott brought over during their last US visit.

https://brewmance.beer/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/052120-Brewmance-Podcast-Boba-Fett.mp3 We here at The Brewmance fully admit we are Star Wars nerds. One day we were discussing the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Is he a good guy or a bad guy? He’s works with the Empire. He captures Han and gives him to Jabba the Hut. But, Boba has a backstory. Mike has his opinion. After all he named his hunting dogs Boba and Jango (Jango’s ‘Dad.’). Get it. Hunting dogs. Jango and Boba were both bounty hunters. Ha. Rob has a different opinion. So The Brewmance gets together, cracks open a Modern Times Ice Pilsner and discusses Boba Fett. Division is thriving across the country. It’s causing opinion burnout. But, we here at The Brewmance know a great craft beer can open us up to open minded conversations. We listen. We talk. We drink. We live. Join us and weigh in. Is Boba Fett a good guy or a bad guy? We explore our thoughts on this podcast. We’d love to hear yours. Email us at email@example.com or find us on Facebook or Instagram. Cheers. And may the Force be with you.

https://brewmance.beer/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/050820-The-Brewmance-Podcast-Laura-Hansen-Saddlemountain.mp3 Arizona’s businesses are starting to open up. And this is posing some challenges for business owners. The owner of Saddle Mountain Brewery, Laura Hansen, joins The Brewmance to talk about how they are moving forward.

Laura is incredibly honest in this conversation–and we do mean incredibly honest right down to the numbers–about how business has changed for Saddle Mountain in the past 8 weeks. Mike, Rob and Laura not only talk about the challenges ahead, they discuss the unknowns. No one quite knows how many people are ready to dine-in at restaurants yet. So that presents challenges. Laura walks us through how she and her team are trying to balance safety while trying to make a living in the time of COVID19. As always, we grab beers to chat over on The Brewmance podcast as we know division is thriving, leaving many of us feeling burned out, isolated, and searching for real connection. That’s why we created The Brewmance – an open-minded, inclusive community dedicated to celebrating life and crafting memorable experiences so that, together, we can restore civility and save the world…one drink at a time. Laura and Mike grab beers from Saddle Mountain Brewing. Mike grab’s Ray’s Gold IPA. Laura tells us the story behind that beer’s name while she sips on Strawberry B!@$!. Because Rob doesn’t live near the brewery in Goodyear, AZ, he decides to sip on a special beer that’s been sitting in his fridge from the furthest point possible he could think of. Garage Project‘s Fresh IPA out of New Zealand. Rob is thankful for his friends Scott and Charlie for introducing him to this craft beer made in their home country. Join us for this podcast. You’ll dig it. If you are a business owner, we’d love to hear from you as you, too, face the challenges of reopening. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on Facebook or Instagram.
