36 - Gigantic Brewing with Van Havig by Strange Brews Podcast published on 2014/06/20 21:03:52 +0000 We spoke with Van Havig, founder of Gigantic Brewing Company in Portland, Oregon when he was in Chicago last December. He shares insights on the beer industry from his background as an economist. We also discuss new breweries opening in Chicago- including Homaru Cantu's new project. High end wine forgeries also come up- and how they caught one of the Koch brothers in their snares. We drink Heady Topper by The Alchemist and Lakefront Brewery's My Turn Series: John, a Dark Lager with Cherries.
