I get emails from people all the time that are looking to break into the brewing busiess, and they’re concerned they don’t have any experience that’ll get them in the door at one of the 3,000 plus brewery sin he country. And they’re right, they don’t. Which makes today's episode so valuable.
A couple weeks ago, we introduced you to Mike Sardina, a new San Diego-based writer for Good Beer Hunting. But did you know that he's also an employee at Societe Brewing, and VP of the San Diego Brewers Guild? He did all this after he decided to give up being an intellectual property lawyer and followed his passion for beer. Today you're going to learn how he did it.
This past week, Mike also took a little vacation to Chicago — it’s been a few years for him — and while I was leaving town for Hunahpu’s Day at Cigar City Brewing, I wanted to make sure he had the best possible time. And it sounds like he did.
Bonus: a short interview with Caitlin Grey of The Rebuilding Exchange in Chicago, one of our parters on the New Belgium Slow Ride Sessions.
