Batch 107: Flat Fish Brewing's Mike Brown

Updated: Sep 11, 2018

Cheers to all the local beer lovers! This week Greg is in Camarillo, CA to stop by the brand new Flat Fish Brewing Company to talk with head brewer and founder Mike Brown. Flat Fish is a very unique brewery, as it's one of the few that is attached to a winery as well, Cantara Cellars. Mike is a former engineer turned winemaker and now head brewer. The guys start off discussing the uniqueness of their situation with both wine and beer, Mike's background as both and winemaker and brewer, as well as his inspirations to get into the alcohol business. They also talk about Mike's former day job running large manufacturing and service organizations and how that translated and helped him transition in his current role. Mike and Greg also discuss opening the brewery, where the name came from, being in a small city, nerdy brewing stuff, listener questions and so much more! On top of all of that, we sampled five of his delicious beers as a guided tasting for anyone that comes into the tasting room.

A huge thank you to Mike from Flat Fish Brewing for lending his time and sharing his beer. To find out more about Flat Fish, head over to or find them on Facebook or Instagram @flatfishbrewingco. And if you're in Camarillo, stop by at 126 N. Wood Road.
