Recent Episodes

Similar to many home brewers, Neil Kade dreamed of having his own brewery one day. Although it’s not exactly the dream he expected, he’s now commercially brewing beer for New England. 

We first heard of Neil and Gilded Skull Brewing after our friends the Mass Brew Bros. wrote this article in February 2019 and their follow up article released just a couple weeks ago.

In the article we found that not only was Neil trying to launch Gilded Skull Brewing but he was also diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer and fighting for a future. Neil was quoted saying “all we wanted was normalcy, to start our family and build this little beer project into a brewery.” 

Flash forward to the present, after successful surgery and a grueling 12 months of chemotherapy Neil is currently cancer free and he and his wife are expecting a child in a few weeks. On top of everything, Neil is in the middle of releasing his first beer, Gilded Empire, a 7.2% ABV New England IPA featuring Citra, Cashmere, and Lotus hops along with spelt and flaked oats. Make sure to get your hands on this beer with their convenient beer finder on their website

This weeks episode was inspired by our friends The Mass Brew Bros‘s blog post What is the Future of the Massachusetts Craft Beer Industry, Post Pandemic: Local Brewers Weigh In. If you haven’t had a chance to read it please check it out!

The primary focus of this virtual round table discussion is to allow a platform for some of the blog posts contributors to discuss together life as a brewery now more than a month into the pandemic. 

Topics range from how they have adapted to the current climate to their views outlooks on the current situation, and what the future might look like.

As the Mass Brew Bros put so eloquently: “We caution readers and listeners, however, not to draw too many conclusions on what other breweries may be experiencing, or the fate of the industry as a whole, based on this sampling. It’s simply a series of snapshots that reveal what some in the local industry are currently dealing with”.

Please make sure to continue to support all Mass Breweries and if you’re curious about our guest this week here are their websites which all list how to get your hands on some beer!
