Ari and Tony Karlowicz, Co-founder of Back East Brewery, talk about beer, taste beer, and have a great time talking about brewing as what it truly is, a manufacturing business. They discuss topics any other manufacturer would need to learn: innovating, staying competitive in a crowded market, business strategy, and how to grow your capacity.
Tony and Ari also talk about Tony's background - moving from accounting to brewing - and how important it is to follow your dreams and just get started.
This episode gets into some interesting topics like brewing history and regulations, building relationships in the industry, the manufacturing technology and the challenges a brewery can face.
Grab yourself a beer and enjoy learning in this episode of the Made in America podcast.
