Play that Funky Music, Trash Panda! - Our favourite jams from 2018.

Last week we shared our yearly compilation of beer releases showing where our minds and hearts were in 2018. Some things were obvious, such as our craving for more fruit-forward Milkshake IPAs, while others less apparent, like our subtle move to brew our beers with new and different kinds of yeast in order to create more textured and full-bodied beer styles. This week, we’re focusing on the music that played a key role in our daily brewing life over the last 12 months. We’re often complimented by the mixture of music we play during our brewpub hours, which we must attribute to the impeccable and varied taste of our staff and our brewers. These songs, some old, some new, served as the soundtrack to so many special moments we experienced over the year, whether it was the week-long blending process of the barrels for Hibernator 2018 or our 2-year anniversary celebration. Our Bandit Fam’s eclectic taste is more than apparent, with featured artists that range from Fleetwood Mac to D’Angelo. What does it say about us? We’re not quite sure ourselves, so don’t overthink it, pour yourself a pint, sit back, and let the music play.
