Episode 18: Carefully Back into the World

After more than a year of uncertainty and life moving slowly for a lot of us, things have picked up speed in the last few weeks. Taprooms are re-opening for inside service, customers are buying beer for parties, draft beer is coming back to accounts. 

Where do we go from here, how do small breweries make the most of this time and get on better footing for the future? What did we learn over the last 15 months, what does the future hold for beer, and how can your Nano Brewery get on the road to success and profitability? There’s a lot to discuss, so let’s dive in with our guests:

– Audra Gaiziunas the owner of Brewed For Her Ledger, LLC, a management consultancy firm focused on providing guidance to the craft brewing and cider communities. 

– Paul Leone, Executive Director of the New York State Brewers Association
