Talk: The Craft Beer Revolution

Steve Hindy, founder of the Brooklyn Brewery, discusses his latest book "The Craft Beer Revolution: How a Band of Microbrewers Is Transforming the World's Favorite Drink." He tells the inside story of how a band of homebrewers and microbrewers came together to become one of America’s great entrepreneurial triumphs. Beginning with Fritz Maytag, scion of the washing machine company, and Jack McAuliffe, a US Navy submariner who developed a passion for real beer while serving in Scotland, Hindy tells the story of hundreds of creative businesses like Deschutes Brewery, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, and Harpoon. He shows how their individual efforts have combined to grab 10% of the dollar share of the US beer market.
