Confessions of a Beer Sceptic - David Gluckman on what the Beer category gets wrong and how to fix it.
2022/06/27
In this special live episode you'll learn why the man with 50 years experience creating the biggest spirits brands in the world dislikes beer and how he thinks those who make and market it can do so much better. Recorded in the historic Irish College in Leuven, Belgium, in front of a large audience of Business of Beverages listeners, Will and special guest co-host, Susan Boyle talk with David Gluckman, author of That Shit Will Never Sell and creator of Baileys, Tanqueray Ten and Ciróc Vodka. David is in provocative form as he addresses an audience of brewers and beer lovers, explaining why beer is so unappealing to so many consumers. Ingredients, serve sizes, packaging and communication all come into focus as he back up his ire with well reasoned examples, from the mega successful Corona to the ill fated Virgin Lager. However he also offers thought provoking solutions and issues a challenge to everybody in beer to do better in a conversation full of wit and warmth. Please note that this is the third and final in a series of episodes that were recorded Live in Leuven as part of the first Business of Beverages roadshow which included, brewery tours, beer pairing dinners, brasserie visits and technical talks amongst other amazing adventures in the Beer Capital of Europe.

In this episode you'll learn how the global distilled non alc category was created by one man with curiosity and a thousand bottles of hope. Will  talks to Ben Branson, the founder of Seedlip, about the nitty gritty of how he created the business and the challenges and opportunities he faced along the way. Specifically Ben describes the difficulties in persuading retailers to categorise and fixturise the emerging non alc category correctly and the temptation to devalue the category through cutting margin and prices too quickly. Plus Ben expands on why he chose to seek investment from Diageo and how that allowed him to achieve his goals quicker. No only that but we talk about Foxy's return to the Beer Festival circuit and Will's understanding of the theory of Effectuation.

Earth-Quaich! - Georgie Bell on shaking up the Scotch industry from the inside out.
2022/04/17
Come to Leuven with us! We're hosting a 2 day BizBevPod Live event all about Belgian Beer on May 25th -27th with: live interviews with world class industry guests from Duvel, ABI, The Brewers of Europe and others, exclusive brewery tours, beer pairings, brasserie visits, panel discussions and networking events. Places have opened for booking. Just drop us a mail at BizBevPod@Gmail.com and we'll share details. Back to the episode... In this episode you'll learn how one young woman is changing the way that the spirits industry (and Scotch in particular) builds it's networks and educates it's consumers, ambassadors and advocates. Will  talks to Georgie Bell, the Global Head of Advocacy for incubation Brands at Bacardi. Despite being an industry veteran with nearly 15 years experience and memberships of the most exclusive industry bodies, Georgie is still retains an outsider's perspective, enabling her to better advise and agitate for change in an industry that can be seen as "stale, male and pale". Our visit to our Desert Island sees  Ben Branson, the founder of Seedlip, make a pretty left-field choice that will bring home comforts, if not tropical tastes, to the island. No only that but we talk about Foxy's shirking of BizBevPod responsibilities, wedding ceremonies and the worst cocktail Will has ever ordered.
