The gremlins hit the recording this week and a great interview with Jade Flavell from the Wheatsheaf and Steve Jeffares from the Local Taphouse was ruined. Rather than go without a podcast, we have repackaged a 2010 interview with Greg Koch from Stone Brewing explaining why he is passionate in trying to stop the grey importing of his beer to Australia. This interview created quite a storm when we first played it in November 2010 and many of our readers (and listeners) may not have heard it before.
The story is relevant this week because of a story by Sam Fletcher that takes a look at Platinum Liquor, a favourite craft beer store in the tough Sydney market, but one that also proudly boasts of selling grey import beers, including Stone.
Anyway, listen to Greg Koch and make up your own mind about the practice.
Next week we will be back with our regular show.
