Didn’t get enough of craft beer firebrand Greg Koch during the Saison du BUFF live Hangout last week? Stone’s opinionated and outspoken founder sits down with the hosts of TheLIP.tv’s The Wine Down show to discuss his introduction to craft beer, the Stone philosophy, and Greg’s crazy dreams for the future of brewing.
In contrast to the lovable charisma of Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione, Greg’s frankness and transparency turn a lot of people off, but his passion for beer has been a boon to the craft beer industry as he has shepherded Stone Brewing into a powerhouse.
The interview covers the origins of Stone, Greg’s first experiences with craft beer, and his philosophy on beer, food, and people that has gotten Greg so far. It’s an interesting conversation and worth a listen; we especially liked the crazy ideas he has for the soon-to-be-built Stone Resort Hotel! Throw it on in the background while you slog through Friday afternoon!
