Episode 195 - Steve Luke, Cloudburst Brewing

Episode 195 - Steve Luke, Cloudburst Brewing

Welcome to 2019, Thieves!  We're kicking off a new year with an episode that we recorded last year. It's our second show from Boston on the morning after our live audience episode and right before the Beer Advocate IPA Fest. 

Stealing Beer with us this week is Steve Luke, the founder and brewer at Cloudburst Brewing in Seattle. He's celebrated for his recipes and take on the brewing industry, and also well known for wearing a shirt emblazoned with "Fuck AB" that he wore on stage at the Great American Beer Festival in 2018. 

He's got his reasons for that wardrobe choice: He once worked at Elysian, before the mega brewer's acquisition. In addition to talking about how that sale has altered his local beer landscape he took Augie and John on a guided tour of his brewing career. 

And there's something about Boston that brings out the best beer choices in people.  Steve brought with him a bottle that was so special, so inspired that we actually thought about blanking out the name on the tape so that we could hoard all the goodness for ourselves. But, we love you too much to ever actually follow through.

Check out the episode and let us know what you think!
