Episode 7: Lagered Tales, presented by Beau’s. The Balance Episode. Featuring elite runner and former beer mile world-record holder Lewis Kent; BSN: Beau’s Sports Network; failed New Year’s resolutions; work-life balance; balance in beer.
Let’s get physical!
In our seventh episode of the Beau’s podcast, we’re talking balance. That means balance in life, career, diet, being active, and of course, enjoying beer.
Could there exist a way to combine athleticism and beer? Is there a way to actually integrate beer into a sporting activity and make it part of the competition? In our first segment, runner and former world-record holder in the beer mile, Lewis Kent, explains the unusual—but amazing—sport in which runners throw back a beer every quarter mile, right on the racetrack!
Find out what a “reversal of fortune” means to beer milers, and what Ellen DeGeneres is like in person.
So let’s see: If you can run and drink beer at the same time, there must be some other ways to combine the sporting life and that craft beer life, right? In our action-packed second segment, the wacky team at BSN: Beau’s Sports Network, takes over our show and investigates the connection between enjoying good beer and being active.
Third on the roster, we hear some first-hand testimonials of failed attempts at New Year’s resolutions—the ultimate test of a person’s willpower and ability to balance personal goals. Could a DJ from the 613 have the self-discipline to eat a bagel every day for a year?
Tune in to find out why, and expect a few laughs.
But it’s not all about the slip-ups. We also hear a rare New Year’s resolution success story! Read about Beau’s marketing director Jacquie Severs’ year without poutine here.
Speaking of balancing priorities, in our fourth segment a superhuman Beau’s sales rep with three young children and a large sales territory to cover explains her strategies for achieving that ever elusive work-life balance. Pro-tip: Google Calendar is your friend.
Lastly, Beau’s brewmaster and resident beer philosopher Matthew O’Hara checks in to explain what balance means in crafting the perfect beer.
