WISEACRE Brewing Company is joining us for CANvitational this year! Brothers Davin & Kellan Bartosch have been on an extensive quest procuring top-notch experience from around the globe to deliver the best brewery possible in their groovy hometown of Memphis, TN. The brewery name comes from a term of endearment/scolding their grandmother used on the young troublemakers. So cute.
You can look forward to enjoying the following WISEACRE beers at this year's CANvitational:
- Tiny Bomb, American Pilsner
- Ananda, IPA
- Tarasque, Saison
We asked the Brewmaster, Davin Bartosch, the following questions so you could get to know them better.
All kinds of stuff. 60's and 70's country, Metallica, Memphis rap, occasionally Katy Perry.
2. What's your brewing mission? What are you trying to accomplish with your beer?
Our mission is to educate. Helping people understand good beer and understand that there is some beer for everybody. Also, its vital that people don't get too fussy about beer. We worry about beer all day long. But not everyone needs to do that. Sometimes you just need to poke a hole in that precious IPA and drink it in one gulp. If its that kind of day. Of course, we will always be willing to wax philosophically about the particular characteristics of hops and yeast strains and do some "beer matching."
3. How many beards can be found in the brewery on any given day?
3 usually. Sometimes it swells to 4 in the winter.
4. Which beers outside of your own do you enjoy? What beer do you wish you came up with? Why?
I love Gossamer from Half Acre. I love Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and I am so glad that it is so accessible. Here are some other beers we love. http://wiseacrebrew.com/culture/meet-the-team/ I don't wish I came up with any beers. But I am glad that we have such a long history of brewing and so many pioneers (Sierra Nevada) who came before us.
5. What's your go-to shift beer after a long day brewing?
6. Is there anything else you would like us to know about you and/or your company?
http://wiseacrebrew.com/culture/our-journey/ I think this map says a lot of what I would like folks to know about us. Mostly that we really took our time doing this and gathered lots of experience all over the place. Its been an awesome 1st year!
