Strangers in a Strange Land
This episode is coming to you from a real life microbrewery in Austin, TX! My first introduction to Strange Land Brewery was meeting Tim Klatt through a friend during SXSW. We went to his house, met his lovely family, and made us a platter of various pickled vegatables (sold as Hat Creek Pickle Company) and gave us tastes of beers-in-the-making. SXSW is a magical time in Austin and this was certainly a standout moment. I’m not a big pickle person, in general, but I can get into some pickled okra or some of the Texas Kraut that they make.
I was very excited about the beers because, as we talk about, they don’t conform to the over-hyped IPA’s. They just brew some really tasty beer.
Before we sat down to talk, I insisted on visiting the tasting room which is attached to the brewery and getting a tour of the facilities. I used to be a chemical engineer (and still claim to be sometimes) so I can nerd out over the vats and batch processes and equipment used to make beer. We don’t really talk about that on camera, but the tasting room was hopping (no pun intended), and I made a friend while sitting at the bar.
I got to try the Alemania, the Ploughshare Saison, a honey mead scotch ale blend, and then the Belgian Trippel.
On camera, we drank the delicious Belgian Trippel at [10:30] in the morning – breakfast of champions. Check out more pictures below the video. And if you’re ever in Austin (like for SXSW), grab a burger at Hat Creek and get some beer from Strange Land Brewery.
