#47. 1 Year Anniversary Special at Hopworks Urban Brewery with Founder Christian Ettinger #Sasquaii

#47. 1 Year Anniversary Special at Hopworks Urban Brewery with Founder Christian Ettinger #Sasquaii

September 25, 2020

This week on the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only the Sasquatch Hunters, we celebrate our 1 Year Anniversary, recorded at Hopworks Urban Brewery, the Birthplace of The BOB, with Founder and Head Brewmaster, Christian Ettinger.

Christian has been brewing beer for over 25 years and first experienced the brewpub as the center of the community while living abroad in Cologne Germany. Upon returning to the U.S., as the craft beer scene was exploding here in the Pacific Northwest, Christian knew by the age of 19 that he wanted to start this business. Combining the European style brewpub experience with the more modern craft brewing approach, Hopworks Urban Brewery opened in Portland, OR in 2007.  We already knew going into this episode that we loved Hopworks, and we were pleasantly surprised that Christian shares our love of quoting Seinfeld and movies, hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording. 



In this episode:

  • People have been gathering around beer for the last 9000 years since the ice age receded. 
  • The plural of Sasquatch is Sasquaii, the second "i" is silent. 
  • Company culture starts with the founder and the things you stand for, and then build a team that is like minded and thoughtful.  
  • A camel is a horse designed by committee
  • B Corp provides a way to benchmark themselves and focus on local neighborhoods and environmental groups and to be profitable in a meaningful way, as well as spotlight areas where more work needs to be done.  
  • The pandemic is a shared experience for all small businesses, but you have to get scrappy, be resourceful, surround yourself with great people, and really get back to basics.  
  • Getting lean is about getting rid of dead weight and focusing on what can you reasonably accomplish yourself and what you need help with. Both are ok, but don't ever be all in one pot.

#46. An invitation for discomfort & reaching your full potential with Lindsey T. H. Jackson #OhMyGuinness

#46. An invitation for discomfort & reaching your full potential with Lindsey T. H. Jackson #OhMyGuinness

September 18, 2020

This week on The Business Over Beer Podcast, we welcome Life & Business Strategist, Lindsey T. H. Jackson. She shares how she started a dance and theatre troupe in Galway Ireland, which became a catapult for everything she's doing now as CEO of LTHJ Global, an organization committed to creating tools, resources and programs around the limitations that hold us back from reaching our highest potential as individuals and in our school systems, workplaces and community groups.  



In this episode:

  • We explore the construct of race in this country, how we normalize bias, the impact of failure, and how we can reach our fullest potential.
  • There is no "White" and "Black", but instead there is a rich fabric that makes up each and every one of us; we must continue to explore and name that fabric, and stop propping up a system that asks us to simply tick a box.
  • We are all intended for this world, for this time, for this moment, as we are. 
  • We need to move away from individualism to WEism
  • We must unlearn decades of biases and conditioning in order to understand the difference between the person I want to be and how I actually act in the moment, and to start being the person on the outside that I am on the inside. 
  • A cultural framework exists in which love is earned through achievement, and if I fail, I risk losing love.
  • We are indoctrinated from an early age that the worst thing any of us can do is to be seen to fail; failure denotes weakness, and weakness in failure means that YOU are a failure, as opposed to you are intact and your failure is separate.
  • When I focus on human connection and make space for people to tell their story, they become open and accessible to my story.
  • "To love someone is not the opposite of holding someone accountable" - Brene Brown


Guest Beer:

Guinness & Co. - Ireland

Guinness Draught, Irish Dry Stout, 4.2% ABV, 45 IBU

"Rich and creamy. Distinctively black. Velvety in its finish. This iconic beer is defined by harmony. Sip after sip, sweet counters bitter as the malt arrives on cue to compliment a base of roasted barley. Just as the unmistakable white head sits flush atop the dark beer, so do the flavors counter and combine perfectly. This is our greatest innovation."


Angie's Mystery Beer:

Rio Bravo Brewing Co. - Albuquerque, NM

Lobo Louie's IPA, Session IPA, 4.5% ABV, 40 IBU

"Official IPA of the University of New Mexico. The Perfect Day Drinker."

#45. Hope, Ambition & Fortitude with Indie Music Label Founder Ryan Reed #TheVibesmith

September 11, 2020

This week on the Business Over Beer Podcast, we welcome The Vibesmith, Ryan Reed, founder of HAFLife Entertainment, an independent record label and entertainment company focused on music, film, live events and lifestyle. Ryan shares with us that writing poetry at a young age combined with his love of hip hop turned into a love of putting words to rhythm and music and ultimately into an entrepreneur with a business focused on Hope, Ambition, & Fortitude.



In this episode:

  • Ryan thought he'd go into the military because he knew that a traditional path to college didn't suit him.
  • Ryan was reinvigorated with the love of music late in High School, then his first live performance sealed his desire to pursue it as a career.
  • HAFLife offers opportunities to other musicians and showcasing talent from the Pacific Northwest in a grander way than just through his own music.
  • A willingness to do something different, to take a different path takes a lot risk and sacrifice, and the courage to continue to get up from being knocked down.   
  • You have to be willing to be hated for every little thing you do, success takes a relentless warrior attitude.  
  • Are a creature of circumstance or a creator of circumstance? People don't realize how in charge of their lives, emotions and mentality that they really are. 
  • Having a third person perspective on yourself helps you come to terms with your demons and downfalls which allows a person to grow.  


Guest Beer:

Future Primitive Brewing - Seattle, WA

NPFO Pilsner, German Style Pilsner, 5.4% ABV

"100% German hops and malt, this bright German Pils is pale in color and has a bursting billowing white head.

Angie's Mystery Beer:

Lucky Envelope Brewing - Seattle, WA

Peanut Butter Cream Stout, 6% ABV, 34 IBU

#44. Creating centers of memory with Museum Director Bradley Richardson #HistoryABrewin

#44. Creating centers of memory with Museum Director Bradley Richardson #HistoryABrewin

September 4, 2020

This week on The Business Over Beer Podcast, Bradley Richardson, Executive Director of the Clark County Historical Museum, stops by to share his story. We learn that despite having a closed building for many months as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Museum has been able to successfully run digitally and still provide their core offerings of events, programs, exhibits and preservation.


A portion of all September proceeds from our Patreon subscriptions will be donated directly to the Clark County Historical Museum. Also, as a Business Over Beer patron, you will get exclusive access to view our behind the scenes walk through with Bradley of the History A Brewin' exhibit. 

Please subscribe now and help us support this incredible local gem. 



In this episode:

  • Museums are centers of memory that help people think critically about history.
  • There is a long line brewing in Clark County and current day brewers now acting in very similar patterns to the original brewers.
  • The understanding of where we've come from creates stewardship and a desire to become a better caretaker of things going forward. 
  • The Clark County Historical Museum is working to be as much about discourse as it is about dissemination.
  • There is a misconception that something is not worth saving if it's not out on display.
  • The museum is not an antique store; it's not just a collection of old stuff, but rather it's a bunch of old stuff with story and context.
  • The museum is not just committed to preservation for their own collection, but also they offer outreach and tools for people in the community to preserve their own historical items.
  • The past is like a foreign country.
  • History is not the book or roadmap that has to fit perfectly today as it did in a past situation, but instead it's more of a toolkit that we can pick out the bits and pieces that can inform us on how to manage this moment. 
  • Running the museum is part Macgyver and part streetfighter.
  • A museum's role is to act as a bridge between academia and the public 


Guest Beer:

Collaboration between 54°40' Brewing - Washougal, WA & Barlows Brewery - Vancouver, WA

Now he wants to pass on what he's learned through a new course helping make ecommerce reselling accessible to anyone.  



In this episode:

  • When getting started, be clear on who is my ideal customer, what brand values I bring to the table, who are my competitors and how can I do things differently.
  • Don't waste time getting ready to get ready - just go.
  • A negative mindset and imposter syndrome, as well as dwelling on the negative, will impact your overall quality of life. 
  • Change your mindset so when setbacks happen you're in a position to learn and grow from it instead of holding you back.
  • Just like being in a band, you have to practice the fundamentals so when you go on stage you can show your best.
  • Think about things to be grateful for, even if something goes wrong, instead of looking at it negatively, think about it instead what did I learn, or what could I have done better or do better next time.
  • Don't worry about being smartest guy in the room, instead surround yourself with people that you can learn and grow from.
  • If you're going against big go small, if you're going against small go big.
  • Chatbots and Messenger Marketing to personalize service experience and walk thru your products with your customers.

#42. Old school meets new school with Michelle & Mariah Martinez #GangstasOfHazelDell

August 21, 2020

This week on the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only the Sasquatch Hunters, we welcome business partners, and sisters, Michelle and Mariah Martinez of The M Agency. Their 15 year age difference led them down very different paths, both personally and professionally, and when their paths brought them back together, they began building a business partnership that packs an incredible 1-2 punch, drawing on their unique experiences to serve their clients and the community.  



In this episode:

  • When you you're young, go do what you got to do so you don't regret anything when you're older.
  • Do not just provide a service, be OF service. 
  • Be part of your client's team, help and support them broadly. It's not just a one way relationship.
  • Be picky with who you work with.
  • Business partnership is like a marriage, respect each other's strengths, make sure values are aligned and that you are working toward the same goal
  • Growing your business doesn't always mean adding things on, sometimes it's about getting more efficient and allocating your resources properly.
  • Schlitz: I wish I wouldn't have smelled it first.
  • What you learn traveling abroad you could never learn in a classroom.
  • In other countries, business is built on relationships and personal trust, you need need to be able to break bread together.  
  • In a partnership, understand each other's strengths and weaknesses. There is power in allowing each person to shine at what they do best instead of trying to get better at what the other is already great at.  
  • There's no work life balance, especially if you're an entrepreneur, it's just life. 
  • People crave authenticity, you should always try to be yourself wherever you are. If we're fun people, we should be fun people at work too.

#41. The long journey to Portland & back again with Pro Soccer Player Futty Danso #VeryLemonadey

#41. The long journey to Portland & back again with Pro Soccer Player Futty Danso #VeryLemonadey

August 14, 2020

This week on the second biggest podcast in the Pacific NW behind only the Sasquatch Hunters, we welcome former Portland Timbers defender, Futty Danso, to the program - RCTID! Futty shares with us his story of how he got started playing soccer in his native country of Gambia West Africa, how he made his way to the States for college and ultimately playing professional Soccer in the MLS, making a home in Portland, where he is now starting a new Soccer Camp. We talk about some of the challenges he encountered adapting to American culture and he shares his views on the current state and future outlook of Soccer in the US.

Special thanks to Caitlin Wilson, dear friend of the show, for hosting the recording from In Light Hyperbarics in Vancouver, WA. Check out the Episode Links below for a SPECIAL OFFER from In Light.  



In This Episode:

  • Coming from a loose culture in Gambia, being on his own for the first time, and acting the same way as he did in his home country, Futty had some trouble adapting to his new life as a college student in America.  
  • It was a life changing moment when his "American Parents" took him in and helped him adapt to life in the U.S.  
  • Futty and Caitlin Wilson became fast friends while neighbors in Portland, and their friendship saved his career after he fractured his fifth metatarsal (baby toe) and he used the light therapy from In Light Hyperbarics that healed his career threatening injury.
  • With television exposure of worldwide soccer leagues, American's love of BIG stadiums, European leagues playing MLS teams in preseason games, soccer will continue to gain popularity in the U.S. 
  • The business side of club soccer in america means that those who can afford to join clubs, not necessarily the best players, get the opportunities, so some great talents never get the chance to play and advance.  
  • Futty is currently training with T2, the Portland Timbers development team, with his eye on a comeback to the field, where he hopes to play until the age of 40. 
  • But with an understanding that official retirement is not far off, he plans on becoming a coach after his playing days are over.
  • During Covid quarantine, Futty began coaching kids in North Carolina, helping kids who could not afford proper club soccer, giving him the idea to begin coaching his new Soccer Camp. 
  • His Soccer Camps will be true developmental training, committed to one on one training, teaching the fundamentals and technical skills, not just the spectacle of being trained by a professional.

#40. Owning Your Corner of Internet with Social Media Manager Emily Chenery #BrunchIsLife

August 7, 2020

This week on an all new Business Over Beer, Emily Chenery of Naeco Creative stops by to talk about what it takes for businesses to effectively produce content and manage social media. As Owner and Executive Producer for her own freelance production company, Emily has done work for ESPN, CBS Sports, the SEC Network,The University of Florida and The Granite Games.


And no, she doesn't have Covid-19.





In this episode:

  • Never stop learning - always be curious about how to use things more efficiently, or differently or better. Allowing these different things to work together is the adventure of it all and allows you to meet great people and tell better stories. 
  • You are who you surround yourself with.
  • Find people who are smarter faster, stronger than you, those are the people who will challenge you as a human being and who will help you grow.
  • The faster you fail the faster you learn.
  • You can teach people new tools and new skills, but you cannot teach people how to give a shit.
  • Everyone's corner of the internet is different, so define yours and provide context to your audience that is true to your corner of the internet.  
  • The ROI on social media is in the data - if your business is clear on  why it exists and who you are trying to target, the data you get from social media will tell you who those people are and how they behave. 
  • No one has been through a pandemic like this before and it's ok to grieve of what we knew as normal. But now we are building a new normal together, and even though it's uncomfortable, we all must be vulnerable enough to try new things and ask for help.
  • Cancel culture has created a fear of saying the wrong thing and is driving down social media engagement numbers
  • Experimenting and being curious are the keys to successful social media management, especially using the new tools by the specific social platforms, because they will reward users of the new tools with reach and impressions.  
  • Brands fall trap to creating content that is wildly different than how they use the platform themselves and then can't understand why their posts are not as successful as they expected.
  • Time is a currency when trying to engage with your audience on social media.  


Guest Beer:

Swamp Head Brewery - Gainesville, FL

  • Gain competitive advantage by stepping into the fear
  • Have confidence that what you offer has value for your potential client
  • The simple, but not easy, sales philosophy is understanding that it's just two people talking. When you come across desperate or commission hungry, clients will quickly sniff that out.

  • Networking is a great way have business brought to you and have others raise their hand for you.
