After doing the Business over Beer Podcast for over a year now, it’s becoming more and more apparent, that we’re not just drinking beers and talking business…I mean, yeah, it’s some of what we do for sure, but it’s turning into something a bit more special. Our mission has always been building a community to help support Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurship.
The way Business Over Beer builds that community is a three tier system:
In this very special episode of the Business Over Beer podcast, originally broadcast LIVE on facebook on October 22, The Gangsta of Hazel Dell brings a couple members of his posse, Bart Hansen, Vancouver, WA City Councilman and James Oneill, Business Development & Outreach Representative with Columbia Credit Union, to discuss local politics and the state of local business.
During one of the most crucial elections of our time, with record high voter turnouts driven largely by the Presidential Election, there is unprecedented polarization and tribalism created by our national political identities. Now is the time for a renewed focus on local politics, getting involved in our local community and the issues that impact our everyday lives.
These Thirsty Thursday spotlights have been an absolute blast. How could it not be, right? Going to local Breweries and Tap Houses with family and friends, sitting and talking about life, business, sports and adventures in home schooling. Heck, we even throw in a little politics here and there.
This week was no exception for our visit to Brothers Cascadia Brewing in the Hazel Dell neighborhood, north of downtown Vancouver, WA. Brothers Cascadia Brewing has some of the best craft beer in the Vancouver area, and maybe on the whole country. They really stand out in a highly ambitious Pacific Northwest brewery scene. Ben and “The Gangsta of Hazel Dell” himself, Jason Knopp, in all his gangsta-ness, were joined by the Area Director of BeLocal, and long time friend of The BOB, Valerie Hooks.
This week on Business Over Beer, the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only The Sasquatch Hunters, we have Part 2 of our interview with the founders of the NW Escape Experience, Rob and Tamara Bertrand.
In this episode of Business Over Beer, we talk about the community of local escape rooms, the evolution of their escape experiences into the virtual realm, the competition that is likely coming from larger escape room companies, and the post COVID-19 vision for the business.
This week on Business Over Beer, the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only the Sasquatch Hunters, we visit with NW Escape Experience Founders Rob and Tamara Bertrand, who celebrated 4 years in business on October 18th.
We had the opportunity to play their Jurassic Tours escape room, which is an homage to the films Back to the Future and Jurassic Park. Playing an escape room is almost like a live action video game and, at NW Escape Experience, they pride themselves on having the most immersive games around.
Thirsty Thursday from Fortside Brewing and Taco Spaceship
It’s Thursday again and we’re thirsty. And hungry!
It goes without saying that starting your own business has its risks and trepidations. But having a strong support group at your side and in your corner is one of the most important things entrepreneur can do.
Business Over Beer turned a year old in September, so it is a great time to reflect and acknowledge the support we’ve received from so many people and so may small business owners in Vancouver, WA. This week’s Thirsty Thursday, we’re recognizing Fortside Brewing Company and Taco Spaceship.
