Will Craft Brewers Sell Out–Steve Hindy

31 March 2012

imageSteve Hindy from Brooklyn brewery responds to Shanken News Daily:

SND: What are the biggest challenges facing craft brewers today?

Hindy: The issue of succession is a big concern for my  generation of craft brewers. Some have answers to it, but I think others  will sell out to bigger brewers. All of the big brewers who aren’t in  this category are interested in entering it, and those that are already  in it are aiming to expand their craft presence.

SND: How will further involvement by major breweries change the craft beer business?

Hindy: There will be a distinction between those breweries  that are owned by the big guys and independent craft brewers. But the  more that craft brewers sell out to the big brewers, the more the lines  get blurred. Part of the attraction of craft beer is that it’s  independently and locally owned. Craft brewers across the country are  very involved with their communities in a way that the big brewers just  can’t duplicate.
