I know you may be thinking “why are you soliciting my money for Patreon, what could be so tough about making a podcast”, or “podcasting sure looks like a fun hobby”, or specifically in our case, “isn’t it just 3 guys sitting around drinking and shooting the bull with your friends”.
After doing Business Over Beer for almost 2 years, we are here to tell you that there is way more that goes into producing a podcast than you may realize.
This week on Business Over Beer, the premier small business podcast and the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only the Sasquatch Hunters, we celebrate our 1 Year Anniversary, recorded at Hopworks Urban Brewery, the Birthplace of Business Over Beer, with Founder and Head Brewmaster, Christian Ettinger.
Christian has been brewing beer for over 25 years and first experienced the brewpub as the center of the community while living abroad in Cologne Germany. Upon returning to the U.S., as the craft beer scene was exploding here in the Pacific Northwest, Christian knew by the age of 19 that he wanted to start this business. Combining the European style brewpub experience with the more modern craft brewing approach, Hopworks Urban Brewery opened in Portland, OR in 2007, brewing some of the best craft beer in the country. We already knew going into this episode that we loved Hopworks, and we were pleasantly surprised that Christian shares our love of quoting Seinfeld and movies, hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording.
This week Business Over Beer, the best small business podcast for small business owners, we welcome Life & Business Strategist, Lindsey T. H. Jackson. She shares how she started a dance and theatre troupe in Galway Ireland, which became a catapult for everything she’s doing now as CEO of LTHJ Global, an organization committed to creating tools, resources and programs around the limitations that hold us back from reaching our highest potential as individuals and in our school systems, workplaces and community groups.
And of course we enjoy more of the best craft beer.
This week on the Business Over Beer Podcast, we welcome The Vibesmith, Ryan Reed, founder of HAFLife Entertainment, an independent record label and entertainment company focused on music, film, live events and lifestyle. Ryan shares with us that writing poetry at a young age combined with his love of hip hop turned into a love of putting words to rhythm and music and ultimately into an entrepreneur with a business focused on Hope, Ambition, & Fortitude.
And of course, we enjoy some of the best craft beer.
This week on The Business Over Beer Podcast, Bradley Richardson, Executive Director of the Clark County Historical Museum, stops by to share his story. We learn that despite having a closed building for many months as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Museum has been able to successfully run digitally and still provide their core offerings of events, programs, exhibits and preservation.
A portion of all September proceeds from our Patreon subscriptions will be donated directly to the Clark County Historical Museum. Also, as a Business Over Beer patron, you will get exclusive access to view our behind the scenes walk through with Bradley of the History A Brewin’ exhibit.
