Ep. 57 - Jason Pellett of Orpheus Brewing

Drink Beer, Think Beer With John Holl

Orpheus Brewing in Atlanta is the fun, familiar story of a home brewer who wanted to go pro and did. Head brewer and CEO Jason Pellett has a background in music but fell in love with beer making and wanted to bring something special to his city when he and partners opened up the brewery seven years ago. He’s seen the brewery evolve over time and while he has come to embrace some traditions, and holds some things sacred he is also not afraid to mix things up in either of his roles. This means pushing the envelope of flavor but also making sure the bones of the business are solid.Among its recent initiatives is a leadership diversity program that is underway to bring the beer industry along with the times and to make sure the brewery is doing its part.

Stouts are for Summer with Orpheus Brewing's Jason Pellett

Beer Guys Radio Craft Beer Podcast

Mother Nature can't tell us when to drink our stouts With the temps hitting the 90s in Atlanta we thought this was the perfect time to do a show about stouts.  Big, boozy, malty, delicious stouts.  Since Orpheus Brewing brewmaster Jason Pellett shares our love of stouts in the Summer (he released several at Orpheus's anniversary Memorial Day weekend) we invited him to join the fun. We talk about the varieties of stouts available for Summer sippin'.  Dry Irish, Foreign Export Stout, Tropical Stouts... the list is a long one.  Plus, Jason tells us all about the benefits of a long boil (like, really long) when brewing his stouts, we talk about barrel-aging, pastry stouts, and dumping beer.  We also get into an in-depth conversation about plums. Don't let the heat scare you away, crack open a barrel-aged stout the next time you're hanging poolside.

Salud! — Jason Pellett, Orpheus Brewing, Atlanta

Good Beer Hunting

This episode is part of a series of interviews recorded in December at Salud Sourfest, an annual beer festival hosted in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event attracts a curated selection of skilled, sour-making breweries from around the country, with a heavy presence from the Mid-Atlantic region. Sourfest represents a kind of festival that's rapidly growing in popularity, where attending breweries often run in the same circles or share a like-minded ethos, making for a special occasion for attendees instead of an event with any and every brewery that would care to send a keg. As drinkers sipped on a variety of wild and sour beers, I was able to pull a collection of brewers and business owners aside for brief conversations about their companies, specialties and what's catching their eye in the industry. This episode and others run about 20 to 25 minutes, so we had time to dig in a little bit, but the interviews are a bit more focused than the free-ranging talks you hear most weeks here on the podcast.
