What Does It Sound Like to Be Field House Brewing’s Joshua Vanderheide?

Definitive Records asks interesting Vancouverites to sift through their memories and pull out the three albums that anchor their musical tastes.

This time around we headed out to good ol’ Abbotsford to speak with Josh Vanderheide, owner of Field House Brewing


Shakey Graves – Family and Genus | LISTEN

“This song and album remind me of road trips from the early days at Field House, when the crew would hit the road for some out of town beer research and spend some time away from the day-to-day work and to do lists. Now the song is so nostalgic for the early days of our team starting the business, and getting to know each other as friends and colleagues. It definitely brings up fond memories.”


Paul Simon – Diamonds On The Soles of her Shoes | LISTEN

“This is our feel good tasting room song. You’ll often hear it playing at the brewery and, when it comes on, I often stop to just listen. There is an innate goodness about this song. I love songs that just make you smile and make everyone around you feel good. That’s what we try to promote at our place – just a nice chill and upbeat vibe that gets everyone feeling good. This song really does that for me.”


A Tribe Called Quest – Can I Kick It? | LISTEN

“This one is a bit of a shout out to our Brand Director, Ashley – she’s our resident hip hop fan and loves A Tribe Called Quest – it’s always playing in her car. For me, this takes me back to my high school days, when rap and hip hop was just part of everyday life – making mix cassettes and going to Souls of Mischief concerts… but somewhere along the line I got old and listening to Wu-Tang didn’t have the same appeal. Tribe has been able to make music that appeals to all types of people and is so timeless, so it’s still kicking around on my playlists these days.”
