This week we catch up with Brad Rogers, co-owner and head brewer at Stone & Wood, Chair of the Craft Beer Industry Association and recently named Chief Judge of the Australian International Beer Awards.
We talk about Brad’s career and how he got into brewing, the Sanctuary Cove brewery, the evolution of Stone & Wood Brewing and how the changing market has made them reconsider their business model, we put some reader question to Brad and also ask what the Lion takeover of Little World Beverages means for Stone & Wood.
In addition to being co-owner and head brewer at Stone & Wood, Brad is also Chair of the recently formed Craft Beer Industry Association, as well as just being named as Chief Judge at the Australian International Beer Awards. Brad updates us on both of those, and outlines how beer enthusiasts can join the CBIA.
