On the Hop Forward Podcast this week, Nick and founder of McColl’s Brewery, Danny McColl, have an honest and open discussion about mental health. We discuss some of the difficulties running a small business and the toll it can take on well-being, family life and look at some of the strategies you can implement to cope and last the course.
Danny chats about their work promoting mental health and conversation, especially amongst men, through their beer ‘Let’s Eat Pies and Talk About Men’s Mental Health‘ and Nick shares a recording of a bad canning day where he lost his shit over an over-carbonated Kellerbier.
And, of course, Danny talks about the brewery and beers.
