Beer is a Conversation is our weekly sit down with some of the people who make the beer industry the interesting and dynamic industry it is and through these conversations we dig a little deeper into the stories behind the business of beer and brewing.
In this week’s conversation we chat with Stone & Wood’s Jamie Cook. Jamie is no stranger to Radio Brews News, if just as the namesake for the Cook limit. But more importantly he has been a frequent guest through his roles as a founder of Stone & Wood, and of the Craft Beer Industry Association and now Chair of the Independent Brewers Association board. For all of those conversations, we haven’t talked much about Jamie himself.
Jamie this week announced that he will be stepping back from his role as CEO of Fermentum – the overarching business behind Stone & Wood – retiring to the role of Chair of the Fermentum Board in December this year.
Jamie has had a long history in the brewing industry, and his career has spanned some of the most interesting periods of Australian brewing…before he even co-founded Stone & Wood. If you are fascinated by brewing history and the evolution of the current craft beer revival, or if you are a student of the business of brewing, this is a fascinating conversation with one of the giants of the Australian industry.
Enjoy the conversation.
