    Interview with a Head Brewer – Gimme Celt’er

    We’ve done quite a few interviews with head brewers in the past here, but none quite measure up to our latest. They were all good, but for sheer quirkyness our latest is a cut above. The Comfy Computer Chair of Fame had a hard time holding this brewer down. Fantastic interview nonetheless. Hold onto your hats and get to know our latest interviewee, The Celt Experience head brewer, Mr. Tom Newman. Remind us never to ask any more about “dogwhelks” (you’ll understand).

From Germany to Great Britain, Belgium to the United States and around the world; we have had brewers from two and three man operations all the way to centuries old, world renowned breweries. Our interviews aim to not only show these brewers in their craft, but also to show them as the same as the rest of us outside the brewery. Our aim is to show that they may have the occasional bad batch, they too strive to get better at what they do  and that their ultimate goal is to provide the best beer (whether craft or crafted) to…
