In this episode, the second in our four-part series featuring interviews with this year’s 40 Under 40 Tastemakers of 2020, we’re venturing into the world of craft beer.
Beer Editor John Holl connects with Ashleigh Carter, co-owner and Head Brewer at Bierstadt Lagerhaus, and Marcus Baskerville, co-owner and head brewer at Weathered Souls Brewing Co., to talk about the shifting American craft beer landscape.
From changing dynamics in education and inclusion to trends in stylistic preference and consumption, there’s no doubt this beverage space is still learning, maturing and evolving to yield better quality result and greater lasting impact. But the future looks bright, thanks to passionate, creative and caring people leading the charge for positive change and sustainable momentum despite trying times and shifting consumer and retail habits.
You can learn more about Ashleigh, Marcus and all of this year’s 40 Under 40 Tastemakers here or in the October 2020 issue.
