#143 An Episode For Chris: Celebrating The Life Of Christopher Needelman


This is the episode we never wanted to do. On June 5th, we arrived at Montreal's Saint Houblon to interview Chris Needelman, Head Brewer, at their Little Italy location. We were told by the server that Chris had tragically passed away the week before in a car accident. Although we'd never met Chris and had only corresponded via email, the news hit us hard. It didn't feel right to just replace his episode with something else, so we were blessed to have the opportunity to talk to Chris' father, mother, girlfriend and mother of his two children, cousin, and friends at L'Espace Public, drink his final collaboration beer with owner Simon Livingstone, and hear stories about a charismatic, kind, warm, passionate man whose life was cut much, much too short. This one's for you, Chris.
