Lucas Mader

Refreshment Category Manager

Our beer category manager, Lucas started working in the beverage world installing and maintaining draught beer systems where he then joined the team at Bishop’s Cellar. No stranger to wine, you’ll often see a glass of a quirky white wine in his hand. But the history, taste, and food pairings of beer are where he is most engaged.

In his free time – Lucas is usually playing music while cooking for his wife Lisa, and spending time with their dog, Wally. He is also recently a new father to a baby boy. He enjoys playing the drums, or camping with friends. He used to enjoy driving his motorcycle, but his wife made him sell it.

Certifications: Lucas is one of six Certified Cicerones in Nova Scotia, a BJCP Recognized Judge, and has his WSET Level 3.


Lucas Mader's Picks

In this month’s installment of M.O.I.F. (my opinion is fact), i’m going to boldly state that a well made Brown Ale is one of the 10 best styles of beer that a person could drink. But you may say, “but Lucas, i’ve tried Newcastle Brown Ale and it’s left me feeling sad about brown ale”, to that i’d say that Newcastle isn’t nearly as good as it used to be and you’d be right. But Samuel Smith Nut Brown? Now that’s a good Brown Ale. 

As the weather slowly cools, and your kitchen turns warm from roasts, brasies, and pies, remember your old friend the Brown Ale – a beer that’s been made the same way for a hundred years. With notes of roasted chestnuts, brown bread, toffee, subtle berry fruit, and herbal qualities that lead into a soft and creamy texture, with scrubbing carbonation and a dry finish. This is good beer.
