We had the chance to chat with the team at Reformation Brewery today as they added a new beer to their canned offerings.  Atlas IPA joins Cadence Belgian Ale and Stark Toasted Porter, with Union Belgian White Ale coming to cans soon.

It was the first time they canned Atlas, and CEO Spencer Nix was excited. We sat down with Spencer, and Brewmaster Nick Downs to talk about the formation of the brewery, what they stand for, sending their beer to Africa, and what it really means to #setbeerfree.

During the discussion, we also talked about why some in the beer community call them “pretentious.” If you have that opinion, you may change your mind once you hear what Spencer has to say.

We also talked about their upcoming release of Bourbon Barrel-aged Declaration Imperial Stout which is headed to stores now and will be offered at a special tour event on December 9th.

In part two of the interview, Nick talks about their brewhouse setup, and how they are using brewing technology to streamline their operation and cut down on waste.
