On the podcast this week, we’re joined by Head Brewer of Block Three Brewing Company, Kevin Freer.  Based in St. Jacobs, ON, Canada, the brewery produce a range of beers including Fickle Mistress – a dry-hopped kettle sour named after their temperamental labelling machine, Lo Gnomo – a smooth, fruity and dry Belgian Tripel brewed with orange zest and coriander – and a range of spontaneously fermented beers stored in wood.

We discuss everything from Canadian licensing laws, fruited beers that explode in cans, coolships and our mutual appreciation of Craig Farraway, homebrewer and host of YouTube channel CraigTube.

And Nick sits in the beer garden of The Raven Inn in Sheffield and shares a bit about what’s coming up on the podcast over the coming weeks.
