This week we catch up with one of the founders of Stone & Wood, Jamie Cook.
In a very wide-ranging conversation, we hear about Stone & Wood’s year of growth, how they are managing the brewery’s growth both from a production and organisational culture perspective, their successes during 2016, decision to appeal the court loss against Thunder Road.
We also have a fascinating chat about the state of the market including some keen insights into where the beer market is, where it is heading and the opportunities this provides to small brewers.
Among the insights offered are Jamie’s views that while conscious consumers provide great opportunities for small independent brewers, there are four four challenges in the market, being clutter, price compression, quality and big dollar and we discuss these at length, including the critical question of value equation in a tight market.
