This week we catch up with Gage Roads’ Chief Strategy Officer Aaron Heary.
Midway through last year we had a conversation with Gage Roads co-founder John Hoedemaker and Aaron about the origins and history of the publicly listed brewery. It was a really well received episode and one that received an unusually high response at the time, with many of you saying how interested you were to hear that history which hadn’t really been discussed much.
In that chat we filled the episode just talking about the brewery’s history and didn’t delve much into where Gage Roads is now and where it’s going as it has just celebrated 15 years in business. This time we learn how the business is adapting to the changing beer market, including the soon to open Atomic Beer Project in Sydney.
It’s a wide ranging chat that covers everything from the recent release of a re-imagining of its first beer incorporating cryo hops that weren’t available when the brewery launched, what he has learned about brand and business and how he is applying that to its future.
Enjoy the conversation.
