Episode 37: How Brian Koch turned Lombard House into Oregon's best beer bar

The I-5 Corridor

The reason for this podcast? I’m damn proud of a friend. For the better part of pandemic, Brian Koch was driving up and down the streets of North Portland in a Volkswagen van trying to keep his dream alive. He opened up Lombard House in 2016 and quickly turned it into one of the area’s best community hang outs. Then the pandemic shut him down, switching Brian’s role from friendly host to delivery person. “It got weird, man,” Brian says. “I drove around in that Volkswagen for nine months, all day, every day, delivering super expensive jars of beer to people who were essentially handing me charity money.” Brian is no longer the pandemic milk man. Lombard House is back open, only now with a new designation: Last month, LH tied with The BeerMongers for the award of “Best beer bar/tap house” in 2022 Oregon Beer Awards. I sat down with Brian this week at Lombard House to talk about keeping his dream alive, camping spots, good places for lunch and how this random bar in St. Johns turned into Portland’s best Philly bar.

055: Creating Your Ideal Life with Brian Koch

Anything But Typical

Brian Koch is a disruptor of ideas. His goal is to help you rethink things in your life. That could be fishing, work life balance, or anything else that is important in your life. Brian does this through how he leads his life. Brian has been around hunting most of his life. In an experience he discusses during this episode, Brian grew a passion around educating others on hunting, specifically bird hunting. In order to truly feel like he was an outlier in the industry, Brian immersed himself in a 90 day hunting trip. He and his dogs hunted every single day over 7 states, no matter the weather or conditions. This has led to his adventure, experience, and bird hunting content company- Ultimate Upland. Check out Ultimate Upland, subscribe to them on YouTube to see their latest season of Way Upland, and connect with Brian on LinkedIn.

E33: Organized Chaos (Bro Talk and Big World Issues Feat. Garrett Long of Sitka Gear, Brian Koch of Ultimate Upland, and Journalist Elliott Woods

The Element Podcast | Hunting, Public Land, Tactics, Whitetail Deer, Wildlife, Travel, Conservation, Politics and more.

Due to travel complications over the holiday weekend and an idiot move in shipping our recorder home with the audio files still in it, you are just now having the opportunity to hear this episode. We promise it was worth the wait. We had the pleasure of a late night, round-table, super informal discussion that spanned the depths of societal and environmental issues, hunting advocacy, and even how Brian wants to die. The big question is shark or mountain lion attack. Full bellies and zeal for wild places fueled one of the greatest discussions we've had the honor to be a part of. This episode is a conglomeration of history lessons, comedic relief, and young philosophical conversation. If the future of conservation and wildlife lies in the hands of these guys, we are going to be in great shape. Also, if you havent heard yet, we announce a winner of the Sitka Subalpine cap during today's show. Thanks to all who left us great reviews and participated in the contest. Keep them coming! We are on the eve of hunting season! Whitetail and Elk are already filling up our news feeds and we can't get enough! We want to wish everyone good luck as the pursue wild creatures in wild places. Remember to always be safe, give hunters a good name, and take someone new into the deer woods if you get the chance! Message us with your success pics!  Links: www.elliottwoods.com www.ultimateupland.com www.sitkagear.com www.trcp.org Music by Tyler and the Tribe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWvHyKAkN7c
