My latest article for Region’s Business is another cover story! This time it’s all about the business of craft beer in Philadelphia and the region. I learned a lot and can’t wait to keep going. I also did a sidebar about the Prohibition exhibit at the National Constitution Center, curated by Daniel Okrent, who I secured an interview with for the article.
For the craft beer piece, I researched extensively and contacted many of the who’s who of the craft beer craze in Philly, including Don Russell, a.k.a. Joe Sixpack, beer historian Rich Wagner, brewery owners Tom Kehoe (YARDS), Carol Stoudt (STOUDT’S), Gene Muller (FLYING FISH), Rosemarie Certo (DOCK STREET), and others like William Reed (STANDARD TAP), Todd Palmer (SLY FOX & VIRTUAL FARM CREATIVE), Kathy O’Connell (WXPN), Sebbie Buhler (ROGUE), John Vettese (WXPN), and more.
It got a bit of beer buzz when it came out and I hope you like it. Pages 20 – 25….
