Video Coverage of Brew Talks CBC Now Available


We’re pleased to announce that video playback from last week’s special edition of Brew Talks at the 2015 Craft Brewers Conference is now available for video playback.

A capacity crowd of more than 200 brewers, distributors, investors and other beer industry professionals joined the talk, held at 10 Barrel Brewing’s brand new brewpub in Portland, Ore. on Thursday, April 16.

Included below – and also available on the Brewbound YouTube Channel – are discussions with all of Anheuser-Busch InBev’s recently acquired U.S. craft beer brands, featuring:

  • Andy Goeler, CEO of Craft, Anheuser-Busch
  • Garret Wales, Co-Founder, 10 Barrel Brewing
  • John Hall, Founder, Goose Island Brewing
  • Mark Hegedus, President, Blue Point Brewing Company
  • Joe Bisacca, CEO & Co-Founder, Elysian Brewing

Bisacca kicked things off with a conversation on the circumstances that led Elysian to explore a sale to A-B. During the talk, Bisacca explained the transition into the A-B portfolio, the importance of having a succession plan and his thoughts on the various types of craft brewery buyers — including private equity firms, family-offices and employee stock ownership plans.

The evening also featured discussion with Goeler, Wales, Hall and Hegedus, who described A-B’s interest in the growing craft beer category, company culture and shared their vision of craft’s future.
