About Us

Focusing on local Chicagoland breweries and bottle shops, Average Joe's is a podcast about the stories behind the beer. The shop owners, head brewers, taproom managers, and customers all have a story to tell. What we try to do is sit down with these folks and hear what inspired them to get into the expanding world of Craft Beer.

Episode 85 - District Brew Yards (Around the Bend, Bold Dog, Burnt City, Casa Humilde)

ESmoked Meats and Beer Talk. You can't really beat that. With 40 taps to choose from, DYB is a sweet little spot to have a beer and kick it. I got to sit down with the owners of all 4 breweries that dwell within DYB. Its a long one but damn was it entertaining. We got technical, we got comical, we sang, we drank, but more importantly, we learned how and why they started this whole thing.

Episode 83 - Is/Was Brewing with Strong Mike

EIs/Was Brewing is small and it is new, and I suggest everyone put them on their radar now. What my guest, Mike Schallau, is doing is completely different than everything we are consuming in the current Chicago market. It is not a "never been done" scenario, but out side of Off Color, Afterthought, and a handful of others, no one is focusing on these Saison style beers. There are other Fermentation forward breweries out there, but Mike is doing it with 5 barrel fermentors out of Marz Brewing in Chicago. He is splitting off batches of the same beer and fermenting half straight up with a specific yeast and the other half with the same yeast but treating it with Brettomyces. You can taste the beer as it is and as it was. Please follow this young brewery: Social Media: Instagram Facebook

BONUS EPISODE - (Recorded in July 2019) My 1 Year Anniversary/Work Review at Crafted 1979

ESo one year after leaving my "regular" job to join the beer world, Crafted 1979 decided to surprise me by having my wife bring my podcast gear to the shop so that they could do a performance review podcast with customers and beer industry folks. They thought, I ask enough questions on this podcast, they wanted to have our customers and some beer industry folks as me some questions. It was a fun day either way, even if it was weird as shit for me. Thanks to Crafted 1979 for allowing to live my passion daily while also supporting a family. It means everything to me.

Episode 82 - Ike and Oak Brewing

EThat Woodridge area is so hot right now. I love the design and layout of the place, and the beer was spraying to all fields. Nathan the brewmaster and owner Ed were a great pair to chat with about some beer, pizza, and Iktoberfest activities. Wish I had gotten out to this place sooner. It always fascinates me to hear about how a place goes from planning to opening those doors to the public. Their story satiated that impulse. Social Media: Website Instagram Facebook
