History: The two vinyl and craft beer enthusiasts would often chat about music while sipping on craft beer until one day Chris and Buddy made a decision to unite their two passions. On the first day of 2014, they kicked off BierWAX with a Vinyl Brunch party at the Sampler Brooklyn, a craft beer shop in Bushwick. The party was a great success and only further inspired them to bring their vinyl soundscape to other craft beer venues in NYC. BierWAX’s mission is to forge the connection between craft beer and analog music by DJing at craft beer venues in NYC and beyond. The plan is to spin at a different craft beer venue every month and to document their passion for both craft beer and music here at BierWAX.com.
Longtime friends Chris Maestro and Buddy see the affinity between the sounds of vinyl and craft beer and want to share that connection with anyone who cares to listen. Chris Maestro, a longtime DJ and vinyl collector, remarked that “digging for records and searching for that rare Double IPA are so similar. When you find that diamond in the rough, either an obscure record or incredible beer you haven’t tried yet, you can’t help but feel like you’ve struck gold.”
