This week Matt speaks with Paul Baggio, managing director of a network of companies with interests in the craft brewing movement, including Craft & Co, Gypsy Brewing Company and equipment supplier FB*PROPAK.
With his Italian heritage, background in wine-making and qualifications in business, Paul is very articulate about how the growth of craft brewing isn’t just about changes in beer and our tastes, but also about our relationship with those who make it.
In our conversation we look at whether Paul’s Italian heritage and Melbourne’s immigrant culture have made his business possible or shaped his approach, and whether a business like Craft & Co would work in a city such as Brisbane.
Enjoy the conversation.
