Beer is a Conversation: Michael Capaldo

This week on Beer is a Conversation Matt Kirkegaard has a long-over-due chat with brewer Michael Capaldo.

In a career spanning more than a decade Michael has gone from working as a packaging assistant with Little Creatures to a production brewing role with Gage Roads while completing a Graduate Diploma of Brewing through Edith Cowan University. He then took the reins as head brewer for Sydney Brewery and Lovedale Brewery where he led the team to winning trophies at the Australian International Beer Awards and Royal Sydney Show within it’s very first year of operation in 2014.

In 2017 Michael moved from the production side of the industry to take up a sales role at Hop Products Australia working to provide on-the-ground support to brewers across News South Wales and Queensland.

Enjoy the Conversation.
