For today’s episode of the Let’s Meet For a Beer Podcast, I met up with Big Rock Brewing’s very own Brad Goddard. I’ve known Brad for a long time and was excited to connect and get his thoughts on the Craft Beer Community that he has been a part of for 20 years now!
Brad was born and raised in Lucan, Ontario and grew up wanting to be either an actor, minister or politician (I’m still convinced those are all the same profession). He studied Theater in University and taught First Year Acting at The University of Waterloo until moving to Toronto to pursue a career in acting.
True story – When Brad moved to Toronto, his identical twin brother Chris (who was also an aspiring actor) had a job working for Steam Whistle Brewing. One day, Chris had an acting audition and they thought it would be a great idea to have Brad take his shift at the brewery. When the brewery boss found out what was happening he thought it was hilarious – so instead of Chris being fired they decided to offer Brad a job!
20 years later – and a move across the country – Brad is still passionate about the Craft Beer Community. He has made Calgary his home where he is married with three young kids! It was great to meet up with him for a beer – I hope you enjoy the conversation.
