Retail Staff

Lucas joined our retail team in the fall of 2014 after a few years working in draught system management and customer service.

A self-proclaimed beer nerd, Lucas is one of our go-to beer lovers on staff. He loves trying new wine, beer and spirits from regions around the world to see how styles change from place to place. He says working in this industry is like “history class and sightseeing, all in a glass”. He’ll expertly pour your growler fills and ask all the right questions to help you find the best styles for your taste.

In his free time, Lucas is passionate about music (he plays the drums), cooking, and enjoying the great outdoors- whether it is from the back of his motorcycle or camping in the backwoods.

Certifications: Lucas is a Certified Cicerone and BJCP Recognized Judge.

He has also been studying wine through WSET, recently completing Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Awards in Wine.

Lucas Mader's Picks

We all know the folks at Bishop’s Cellar are huge fans of Beaujolais, and we’re also big fans of rose. So, you can probably guess how we feel about Beaujolais Rose!

From one of our favourite producers, Domaine Dupeuble has been making wine on their property since 1512, only using natural yeasts and minimal intervention to produce some of the best value, and freshest expressions of Gamay we have. Loads of ripe red fruits and subtle herbaceous spice give this wine great depth for a rose, and the vibrant acidity that will help it pair with an assortment of light summer fare. Although we have the regular (boring) 750ml bottles, I would strongly suggest opting for the 1500ml magnum bottles –  because you’re worth it.
