episode 9: Mixin’ Mules x Birdies - Josh Miller

From Moscow Mules to a Transfusion Mix (just add Vodka), there’s no better craft mixer in the game than Owen’s Craft Mixers. Josh Miller, founder of Owen’s Craft Mixers, joins us on Chasin’ Birdies to talk about his leap-of-faith journey to start one of the most notable brands in the drink game today. This guy not only chases birdies on the course but has chased (and caught) birdies in LIFE.

We open up the episode and discuss Josh’s background and how he started Owen’s with his partner, Tyler. He got a gig with Honest Tea and worked on a ketchup gig with Sir Kensington Ketchup. Starting at the bottom of these companies coupled with innate sales personality propelled Josh into finding his own brand, Owen’s Craft Mixers.

We talk about Owen’s and how the brand started. From pasting a label on a bottle for a nightclub owner to landing a deal with Delta, Josh has chased birdies in his whole career. And guess what? He chases them on the COURSE!

We turn the page and talk golf. Josh attends PGA events quite frequently. Pepe and Bash can’t go a whole episode without throwing some jabs at each other, and that’s true for this episode, too! Humorous and interesting, this episode will keep you dialed in.

We polish off the episode with our standard tap-in segment where Josh is asked four questions, including his favorite on-course drink (Shocker, Pepe).  Tune in and listen! You won’t want to miss this one.
