Garrett Oliver

Sure, Garrett Oliver brews incredible beers at Brooklyn Brewery, but we also love him for his idiosyncratic, always-keep-them-guessing sensibilities. Here’s what he wrote us when he sent over his playlist: “So, this is a pretty loose collection of what’s running through my head right now. Some of it’s old, some of it’s new, some is middle-aged. A good core of African funk, some gospel…it’s not strictly seasonal, and there’s no genre here...I can pretty much guarantee that no one will have heard of all of this stuff, so have fun! Hope you like it.” With picks like Charlie Winston, Orchestra Baobab, La Femme and New Order, we’re certain you’ll dig it.
