S14E07: The 86 Tram Bar Crawl: Clifton Hill Brewpub



clifton hill brewpub



PODCAST | In this, the seventh stop on our 86 tram bar crawl, we visit Clifton Hill Brewpub and speak with head brewer Ryan to find out what it’s like to run a brewpub in an old pub, what it takes to keep a balance between local-friendly core beers and interesting craft beers, and what beers were never expected to work with both parties but did so with overwhelming success. We also unexpectedly talk beer excise, finding ourselves suddenly envious of the wine industry; and discuss the benefit getting direct customer feedback on future beers.

And if all that wasn’t enough, we hear about a very different ethos about the NEIPA style, and get a glowing review of a Brut style of beer.

This episode is part of our 86 Tram tour. Catch the rest of the season weekly.

Featured beers: Queens Parade Pale Ale, NEIPA, and Breakfast Sour by Clifton Hill Brewpub.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
