Filip Ivanović (Flat Bathtub)

Episode Summary

A conversation about how he discovered craft beer, how he travels to Metal & Beer Fests throughout the United States, how he became an artist, his involvement with the Heavy MTL festival, how he inspires himself artistically and what beers and bands he is into right now. This Episode was recorded at Le Saint-Bock which alongside Vices & Versa is one of the best taprooms in Montreal. The beer that we drank was The Bruery's 9 Ladies Dancing. Which was a delectable little treat! It was an old ale style beer which was brewed with cacao nibs, vanilla, coffee and lactose. It clocks in at 11.3 % ABV, it was a great way to start the afternoon! Matt's Beer of the Week was NONE! That is because I attended La Cuvée d'Hiver. This was one of the best beer events I have ever been to!!! The beers were just out of this wold and I could not just pick one for this week because there were just too many fantastic brews. Matt's Album & Beer Pairing of the Week This week I would like to pair two odd things which fit perfectly together. The album is called New Flesh by the band Priest. It is a retro sounding synth-wave album which has heavy rhythmical beats and interesting hooks. It is an album that caught me by surprise and that I really found myself enjoying. The beer which I think fits so well with it is Brasserie Maltsrom's L'Écume est mauve et la nuit Séduisante. Now this beer is a real mind fuck...It is a Sour Dark Lager to which they have added Blackberries and Haskap berries. The colour is an odd reddish brown almost like an off cola soda and its nose is malty yet sweet. The initial mouth experience is malty and then it swooshes to an intense yet pleasant sour tone. It is a very strange yet totally enjoyable beer just like Priest's album New Flesh.
