During this week’s Brewbound Frontlines livestream, leaders from Stone Brewing, Revolution Brewing and Rogue Ales & Spirits discuss what’s happening with their businesses as the COVID-19 crisis evolves.
Stone Brewing Company, a top 10 craft brewery with various locations in the U.S. has been facing a multitude of challenges under pressure from the coronavirus. Stone Brewing CEO Dominic Engels provides an update on how the brewery is managing during this time, and what they’re planning for the future as San Diego starts to reopen for in-house dining.
Meanwhile, Chicago’s Revolution Brewing was off to a good start at the beginning of 2020, having established itself as the top-selling craft brand family in Illinois off-premise retailers. The company was planning to continue the momentum with additional marketing, as well as extending its partnership with the Chicago White Sox. Doug Veliky, the CFO at Revolution Brewing, joins livestream to discuss how the company has pivoted.
Rogue Ales & Spirits hasn’t been immune to the effects of COVID-19. The company announced earlier this month that it has expanded its distribution efforts, offering free delivery to consumers within certain areas, on-site pick-up, as well as shipping to additional states, to cope with the loss of sales due to the closing of their pub locations. Dharma Tamm, the president of Rogue Ales & Spirits, shares how the company is adapting.
