Ozzy Nelson may be a big-time jokester, but there’s one thing he never jokes about: his beer. He is always serious about crafting very good beer, although there are many zany things scattered about the brewery, including a couple of photo-op gems found within the bathrooms. Even though the founder and president of Mayday Brewery focuses on the quality of his beer, he values connecting with people the most.
Mr. Nelson goes out of his way to show how Mayday takes such good care of their beer. The brewery has a unique jug-filling process and never sells beer in growlers, but always in “jugs of fun.” In the first of a series of Brewmaster interviews, Ozzy discusses his original Mayday, details the background of the microbrewery and previews the upcoming redneck party to be hosted by Mayday, Hot Chicken and Jorts SOUTH!
