1996 was a seminal year in craft brewing. It nailed the high water mark for craft brewery openings and that class of 1996 included such luminaries as DogFish Head Craft Brewery, Stone Brewing and Victory Brewing. Locally, you can add Flying Fish Brewing, Yards Brewing, and brewpub powerhouse Iron Hill Brewery to that class of ’96. And if you put all six of these breweries and their founders in a room, what do you get?
Expect side splitting stories of perseverance and perversion as Sam Calagione (DogFish Head), Bill Covaleski (Victory), Gene Muller (Flying Fish), Tom Kehoe (Yards) are ‘moderated’ by Greg Koch (Stone) while they sit down, sip, and tell tales as part of “Older Bud No Weiser” on June 10, 2010. Hosted by World Café Live for 200 lucky guests, this two hour trip down brewery lane will feature a d.i.y. video that the lads put together featuring themselves as failed brewers, washed up in 2010… Of course their failure never happened and the great beer continues to flow because you, the thirsty craft beer fan, supported their foamy efforts. Thank you. Thank yourself! If you are not up for dropping another well-spent $25 bucks to get with these guys and five of their beers, you can glimpse the video trailer above.
Older, Bud No Weiser, indeed.
