The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers

"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

How I Built Resilience

"Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition so since the pandemic began retail sales have dropped massively across the country is customers are staying home but cliff. Bars actually seen a spike in demand because their bars are really popular among healthcare workers. I spoke to Gary Erickson and kick Crawford from their home in Berkeley California. The company's been distributing cliff bars to doctors and nurses while also trying to boost morale among their employees to me a little bit about cliff bar. What's been the situation for you guys? We're lucky you know. We're an essential food products. We on March twelve was the day we decided to close. Our office is just in one day. All of a sudden. We're like we're not in the awful. How do we run a business when people are are not in the office running into each other and having meetings and and coffee together out trying to throughout so we have been adopting ever since? Yeah it's it's interesting because we have like certain to businesses going on we have our office business and then we have our essential business are two bakeries one in Indiana twin falls. Where making sure that everybody's safe unhealthy. It's really different to have to do this right now. What's crazy so your headquarters. Essentially in Emoryville is closed down right now but you also. Your manufacturing plants are still operating because presumably. There's a demand for cliff bar. People are kind of want to keep things that that are shelf stable and lasts for a while I guess is. Have you seen a big increase demand for cliff bars redid and we did? There was a pretty good spike. And I We were maybe in third place behind the paper and Sanitizer But it's calmed down. You know I think the the object has mellowed out a little bit. But we're still there's demand demand is high and also you know we know that our product is a really essential food for healthcare workers. So far we've given out the first art march three point six million bars to food banks and healthcare workers frontline and then on another where on the second round. Brunell committed another three million through programmer calling Baked with love incentive gratitude Gary when you have been in crises in the past certainly with this business and when you think about it from a leadership perspective. What kind of advice could you give to somebody who is a leader? Even if it's a small business and they're kind of dealing with what's going on right now. I helped would sell duster couple. Things one is Don't be afraid to ask. Question has no answer Kind of off of Wendell Berry mad farmer manifesto of his about four decades ago. I mean we are asking questions every single data we have. We don't have any answer to but you can't be afraid to ask those questions and then if you don't have an answer today maybe tomorrow we've I can't even count. How many of questions. We've had to ask that. Don't have an answer. Maybe one could be like What are we? What is it GonNa look like when we go back to the office like when we first asked the office when is can happen? And what are we going to be walking around with right vase mouths on? And Are we gonNA be social distancing when we're back in the office and how's it going to work people you know. Eat and you know we. We don't have an answer for that right now but we're talking about and then the other part of it is just inattentive. You have to be hyper attentive to everything every day minute by minute hour by hour day by day and went and if your attention to something that comes up and we have people emailing US sane. Have you thought of this? What about this? How come this does happen? We're not doing this. Then you connoisseur out that you have to go to like how are we going to doubt and then as soon as you can't take some action and don't sit on things because we don't have time to sit on things we've been making decisions where we have to act now or tomorrow and we as sorry? We're screwed so adapt and take some action. I'm curious I mean. Obviously you are a bigger company much beer company than than a lot of the vast majority businesses in the United States. But if you think about this crisis and this is a little bit tricky because it's a sensitive word to use but as an opportunity are there ways to think about opportunities or to kind of focus on on the other side like how I mean because even with your business you're GonNa Change. They're going to be things about your products that change when when we come out the other side of this question. We don't have an answer to yes. Go ahead well. I mean I'd like to take a shot at it. I think long you know it. Does you double down in refocus on the things that matter for us? I think it's refocused us to consider what's really really important like taking care of our people but also how we work being efficient with our time being creative looking at a problem imagining scenarios. That don't exist yet like what if this happens. What how are we GONNA REACT? It's really made us much. Nimble in some ways yeah for sure. this is a question from about supply chain which. I think is is interesting. How are you dealing with your supply chain and and are you looking ahead to because it's you rely on nuts and on oats and on a variety of ingredients mostly domestic but some imported? So how are you kind of dealing with? The the possibility chain will be disrupted. That's another question that we don't have a full answer to because we don't know you know we're hoping that that were on getting close to the other side but it's still going to be of months we right now good and because we were in that essential category so we're not super worried about supply chain but were daily back to the daily attentive to it and always kind of ask our suppliers like we're good right. We're right and we do have our frontier team on our side chain. Every morning we we meet together with recalled the coveted nineteen task force. So were meeting every morning with this task. Force made up of ood manufacturing lead our legal team our HR team Our community team and our communications team. And we're we're doing that. So we can keep track of all these things and so we have teams under them that are tracking supply chain all the cliff bars that are going to the stores are. GonNa want in the future inside of balancing. That out is just a big rash or is this going to happen. You know slowly and then you know what level are being of yet but it's interesting that this is a time. This is the first time that our business models to kind of a full test like it's easy when you're not easy but so we have this five lines business model you know sustain Your Business. Our brands where people are our community and our planet and it's worked but now we're in the crisis trying to keep this model ally We're not just a successful company over here. Supporting our community and giving thousands of hours of community service not no work in the fire and we're trying to continue keeping those values in tap and living values so so far so good but Has Not Been Easy.

I don't know where the starting point is because I think most base malt naturally at least from what I've read naturally will find that five two to five point six range unless there's a bunch of like darker malts in there so I don't necessarily know where the starting point would be but I think seven to eight would water is then on average anyway right even in cities like generally going to be where they want to be. Neutral SURROUND. Seven got up You know they play with the water. Every municipality has a water department and you know some of them were I live in. Lynnwood waters like pool water so chlorinated. You can't grow with it. Its way to you have to filter it Northfields not too bad but it changes every municipality is different right and every grain bill will change the Ph Differently depending on the mall profile. That's why I use cheat I use a buffer. But if you're doing it large scale would pay to do it the way they do it minds. A little cost me a little bit more money. But I don't have to worry about it right. Yeah well you know what we don't. Have I think a lot of us? Don't have any beer brewery. What else we got Garden State Gear Company. So we brought something special all right very special actually the last year with special. Because they're so little of it. We only serve intense goblets fills but we specifically for vix podcasts. Soda gralow bring on on guys requests. I had a little bit to do. Thank you so much was that. Abc On that one point one point one. More that sorcery. This beer is twelve percent. This is actually our fourth year anniversary Belgian dark strong Ale that we bottled today so it hasn't been aged usually we bottle these recommend people Asia a year or six months to a year before your ticket. Bottler bottle filler setup and we said we just bring some February tastes at six months to a year. We had tasted again to find out what we're supposed to taste a little young still but I think it's dangerously smooth several cracks open shirt with. Yes that sounded good glasses. Please do thank yes. It's down around. Yeah lots of lots of banana. Dark fruit little bit of spice in there this. This is a sipping beer for sure. What did you say it was? Twelve percents percent. Wow so this was another case of grain bill being so big that we have to do it backwards on our production system but in this case if you like we're talking maybe two hundred and fifty pounds of grain for a barrel and a half which is ridiculous. Nice I think most of our one barrel pilots are thirty to forty. Maybe fifty pounds of grain. Nice dark caramel color. And even the head has like a little creamy color to really nice.

We'll see you there and I showed up and I showed up every Saturday after that bringing Jason Brian and Chris in my beers and letting them try what I was doing and fortunate enough that they gave me a chance to slide in on the ground floor and been there ever since. Xl little bit of luck and persistence. Persistence what was the first beer. You ever breath okay. So the first beer I actually ever beer is brewed. I was actually sixteen I don't know if I can say that of a friend of mine's brother Got Humber Kit. You didn't buy for my notes. He was not open yet My friend sister got it for her brother. So my best friend. Who was the youngest brother him and I brought it because the older brother went off to college so we made a double IPA. We thought it was terrible because we didn't drink but apparently it was delicious But the first bureau actually brewed. I did a lot of kits so one of the first kiss probably a Brooklyn Brown Ale but the first all green partial. I think it was a Cezanne. Game helped me with that. A lot was a cezanne clone of some sorts. I seem to remember you like the Belgian wicks. Yeah Yeah and then and then I started making New England. Ipa's 'cause I found you could hide a lot of flaws behind. I've really really heavy dry hops. That was that was rewarding making a lot of a lot of New England. Ipa's yes so. Let a variety of styles. I tried a lot of different things but guy was always there to help me along the way so that was cool. That's great we have like Obi One in Luke Skywalker here or Yoda.

Maybe you should try this. Maybe you should try that. And it's a collaborative effort. Sometimes now guy what. What's your favorite type of drink or is it. Chains is our salaries your favorite. You know and they're other types like better is it depend on the situation well. I like variety but sours really aren't my favorite. I make them for my wife. She loves sours so I MAKE. I always have sour. She liked wine more than beer. She loves beer. Plus she loves a beer yes. She loves beer in fact. I have a beer with me. It's called Donnas Beer. I make a specially for her and it's basically a German coach with twist. It's a light. She doesn't like real hoppy beers. She likes Adams Cream of the crop. She likes to lapse wit shoes like sours. But she doesn't she can't she hates as and scouts and stuff like that so. I have a beer that I make and it's actually a lot of people like it's like it's like Budweiser on steroids. German culture and I put a pound cornyn. There sometimes put rice and like an edge out but the corn gives it more flavor. So like even hardcore craft brew. Drinkers will come in and go. Wow that's really good and people like you. It'd be great for here like if you're having a party. So if you're you're coors light drinkers in your budweiser drinkers. They don't like Craft Beers. They drink this. Ah Guaranteed try. I know they do weep beer because I did have a party last year. And I made ten gallon batch of wheat beer. One was the regular wet. You remember I came to you for the Korean there in the orange. Direct came to you for that and the other one I did as raspberry wheat which is something. I make a few times a year. Everyone likes that. Both of those kegs were gone by the end of the party so they went fast. That was ten gallons in one night. So yeah people do like that. That's something that you know will go like the barrel aged out that you have. You know I won't get that many people drinking that good more for you right. That's true that's more craft.

"The business side of it. How's IT changed for you over the years? Do you think more people are home during now or less people home brewing? Since there's so many more breweries around around the area now you know we've probably doubled over the last few years in the number of breweries that we have in New Jersey. How what do you see from your side as far as Your Business? Well I can tell you. I think it's hard to say My my my business is more. It is multifaceted where I I do. Concentrate on beer. That's my one but I also branch out and do like I do build keg raiders and I do a lot of drafting draft equipment and Do some wine insiders in that thing. But as far as brewers I would say it probably has diminished a little bit. But it's still pretty steady. I would have to say. There's not as many more younger people. I think like my daughter's age your daughter's age a lot of Cocktails maybe sometimes you know they. They're they're not just on. A percentage craft beer. But there's still a high demand for there's a lot of people doing it and it. It's my business has grown steadily over five years and It's worked out well for me. I can't really complain. It's a great way to I was never good at doing nothing. Always had to do something and You know I went from sixty hours a week down to thirty five. So it's like part time for me so I I enjoy it. I really do have a good time and enjoy. I enjoy the the prospect of taking new people to come in and spending time with them and taking them from step to the next step to the next step and it's a process and it could take years now tell we were talking a little bit about some of this stuff. She do community wise. As far as people gathering in your shop impromptu impromptu like beer meetings were people bringing their beer and we test it and a lot of the local brewers come in people that have been brewing for number years. People out there have been doing it for like twenty years or so. We get professional. Come in Adam. Used to come in quite often In the beginning and then I got a job at a brewery. I don't really see off today. We spent a lot of time like when he first started we would like Dissect Beers and talk about how you can improve them. Maybe how you did this procedure. Maybe trying a different one the next time it. So it's a it's a it's a it's a one on one process. Usually with each customer depending on where they are in you know the scheme of their brilliant guy was definitely my original. Sense say yeah. Og sends a lot of beers and a lot of failures. Well you it's normal. I mean some of you know I look back when I first started making beer. It was a miracle when a beer turned out.

"It's like a I think it would you guys have a hazy on now but if you did into this police some of those people that want those big fruity hops and kind of that that softness because this is kind of soft to it too. It's a it's nice and it's perfect or a night like tonight are without a doubt son's been out. It's not hot out here but it's not cold either. This fits that kind kind of drinking atmosphere perfect. It's funny. It's we get a lot of compliments on the names that we that we create or that we give our beer's as I'm sure a lot of Burris do and we always get asked the question where where's the inspiration come from like truly it's organic you know we have we present style and and we presented to a few people including a lot of employees and a lot of the people that that come in here a lot and a Lotta Times the names will come out. is very aptly named Smash Madison but that's kind of a lot of the beer names come and that will drive people to drink a beer. the Lord's prayer you know business customer of ours came up with that came up with that name and before we open we realized we needed a beer called the Lord's sprayer and so people will come up and say well. I've got to have the Lord's prayer it's the Lord's prayer I experienced that too when I ran into you at hops in the hangar with the old man and and he as soon as he saw it oh I gotta take a picture for the Old Lady I mean I'm getting my religion today. It was fast. I did see that Kinda the first hand so you're in business what has kind of got you guys off. Guard surprised you I'm. I'm GonNa let amy talk here because you know she's a lot of the business side what is surprised me yelp what was just and I heard this before we opened and now now that I'm experienced experiencing it. It's I find it to be true. Is that people go to Yelp when they're angry or they're I shouldn't the angry when they're not happy and people go to Google when they're happy or just when they are nice or whatever so yelp really it shocked me. It's funny because I was talking to some of the other day about podcasting and everybody was podcast now he said Oh you know great us and review the show uh-huh and the more. I've thought about it the more I talked to people. I realize it doesn't really matter if people are gonNA find yourself. They're gonNA find it doesn't matter rate your view and down with podcast. It's kind of that opposite of of yelp. If people are going to get on there and you know re review your show and give it stars or whatever and I tunes it's because they like the show. It's like the if you don't like it. You'RE NOT GONNA listen to go to something else than what is. The value of these things I mean more like yeah yelp was a big eye opener to us the there was one. Can I talk about a review. 'cause it's very funny and the the staff fall kind of made light of it and you realize people are gonNA look up fish. She said that that it was Dole will inside the Berry was dull and that there was a table a big table of people playing board games and having a blast and she wish she could be having as much fun as them. We're like okay. I believe that the phrase was you need to step up your game or it was by new friends but it was you know what I mean like it was so we get however many stars who got because of that but there were people in there having a blast. Do you think that there are people that use something like yelp reviews to decide if they're going to come here though I hope not y- especially because something like craft beer it's such which says particular taste right. If you don't like craft beer you're not gonNA enjoy yourself here unless you have have wine or spirits or sign which we do but even within that if you do like craft beer I could tell you that I that I love the Smash Madison. If you don't like this this you're not gonna like it. You can walk in here and drink the exact same thing. I didn't have a completely different experience. Even you know pull them. Every you know the tables of people having fun aside Reid if you don't like the things that I like you're not going to have the same experience that I just had. You have to do something differently and my gets you know I I don't know I I. I don't think I've ever I don't think I've ever well. I don't know like if I'm if I'm traveling to new area like maybe then I'm pulling ended up to see what the quote unquote highest rated place. That's near me as maybe but I don't well I use it's interesting you say because that's one of the things that we kinda talked through. Who is understanding? What impact is is this to the business? I use you up when I travel for work but I use it to find whatever's near. I rarely ever look at it the reviews to actually see unless it's like really bad yeah like truly you know five hundred views. They're all half a star. You know I may you may not be curious to what I also. I also use it like in conjunction with other stuff like I'll find myself looking on yelp and looking on Google and looking on you know what if it's fits beer on untapped or whatever it may be and you know then kind of making a decision based on on all of those things together if there's one that's an outlier them. That's that's interesting but not not as an actual measure of if it's good or bad I don't know the other thing that I would say that I've was kind of an enlightening moment for me was what people expect out of a beer so you can have a person sitting that comes in and loves. AP's and all they WANNA do is the IP as the APA's and I'll have a person sitting next to him asking about all the other beers and we'll talk a little bit about maybe about the habit former which is our version of what I call the Ohio common beer and I'll be describing the beer to them and telling them what hops are in there what what molly us what flavors to expect you know whatever it may be very approachable drinkable beer and I keep using those words but anyway and the next thing you know that I pay a person is ordering one because they've they've heard this story he can hit the Peo-. I'm very I I do talk uh-huh but they'll they'll hear the story and that's that's an interesting thing to me like it's if you if you tell a story that can sway person a person person to drink a beer or enjoy a beer as much as them just enjoying the flavor of the beer one hundred percent. I I've tried to get that point across a lot that craft beers ears about a lot of other things not just necessarily within the glass. You know there's there's so much more behind it. It's about the experience it's about you. When you sit and you listen to that that show show we did last year and you hear that atmosphere? We're sitting around the table and we're drinking and we're having fun and likely that that's to me like you get that that experience and like that's that's craft beer. It's not necessarily just walking in and getting something in a snifter and smelling it and some guy controlled environment and walking away like that's yes. That's part of it but that's not what it's about and that is something that I was pleasantly surprised by was how many people get in here that have now become regulars that that we talked to all the time that get excited about new recipes and you know we can have conversations about something that is something that we're working on are trying to figure out and how involved they get and and part of what we wanted to do. Here is make this a neighborhood community type bar and it's happened Qatar I have we have we got a girl teaching job just from you know her mom saying she needed the job and then hearing other people within the week saying they were looking and get it. We got her job. What was the other job daughter got? This isn't a job truly like well. That's that is legal yeah so this is one of the one of the neatest stories of the year in my mind so I'm I'm working on a Sunday all by myself and these two God love them little ladies they may be for feel but they came walking in and I I walked out from ran the bar and I said hey welcome in ladies and they're probably in their eighties or something and I said welcome in ladies can do for you. Is this your first time in the woman. It looks I mean she says we're looking for mark. Lords and I said well that you've found him. It's me and she said well I was born lords and she was married. Alerts and we saw online that there is a Lord's prayer and we just didn't know if it was like our namesake and so of course we take pictures and there's this great thing and and Lo and behold the couple visits later this woman's daughter. Is You know owns this business and she. I need something that my daughter needs or my daughter can provide for her next thing you know. Our daughter has a job and it's such a great feeling like a completely unplanned of course course but but that's the perfect representation you know everybody talks about. You know that craft breweries are the new the pub the new you know public house which you know if you I don't know that history then pod comes from it. was you know it was so the the second building that was built in the United States was a pub. The first one was a church in the second one. Is Anything happened. Everything that was going to church happened at the pub. You did all of your your town hall meetings and that stuff weddings readings and funerals and like all that stuff happened all that all of the other side of things happened at the pub and it became public the public house it was the the center of the community. It was that place where everybody gathered them and things happened and this is that that new kind of representation in this world you know the the the neighborhood bars could have been that I think and then they kind of turned into this other thing because of lots of cultural stuff happening but when when craft beer kind of if started and and turned into this this wonderful thing that has become like it was just prime to create that space for people to come into to meet with each each other and to be with each other and have these experiences and it's it's fun to see that it actually works yeah it. It really has worked for us for sure. There was just something uh-huh the other day you said that so we have a guy that runs thirteen miles a day more easily regular and as a teacher so a lot of people just know him either they he was their teacher or their kid is his student. Whatever but you said the other day he went jogging by yes so from windows were open and he John Yelled in hey and a bunch of people in the bar like hey like you outweighing because they all were knows them Korea and it just that's what we want? We just want a comfortable you know friendly place for people to come and meet and it happens to it's been happening not only to irregulars but a lot of people that come in for the first time right yellow come in sit down and the next thing you know they're reconnecting with somebody sitting right next to him not realizing they haven't seen him in ten years and it is You know we talked about that like you said whatever the episode was. That's what we wanted. We've more than surpassed our expectations for that well. I think that's what everybody wants from their neighborhood brewery as much as you know is is like and Ryan geist and places like that their use big wonderful things for craft beer in Cincinnati. It's not your neighborhood brewery. It's it's your city deep brewery almost to do other things but you know you want this place where you can walk in finance to the bar. Sit down.

And this is business wars daily on this Tuesday may twenty-first these days, it's not easy being a beermaker craft beers have become victims of their own success. The fizzy artisanal stuff is become so popular that being a beer, entrepreneurs, practically an occupational category of its own craft beer battles are enough to send any beer company, owner to drink. You saw that one coming, right? Especially nowadays, because beer-drinking is actually well shrinking, which brings us to the latest in craft beer collaboration, Boston beer, the company behind Sam Adams is buying dogfish head ale for three hundred million dollars, but this acquisition is not actually about the bruise, according to Boston beer, founder, Jim cook beer sales are losing market share to wine and hard liquor. According to the beer institute, so savvy brewers like Boston beer are turning to alter. Unitive 's although sales of its flagship beverage, Boston lager, fell by double digits last year, apparently customers were pounding down. It's hard cider in spike seltzer. Now cook is thinking ahead trying to figure out not what next year's beverages should be. But what the next decades drinks should be. That's where dogfish head founder, Sam Kelly. Joni comes in. It looks like coke wanted Caledonia's well known creativity just as much as dogfish is successful sour beers. And as why for two reasons, actually, I because the seven thousand strong craft beer market is unlikely to get any less competitive second because big beer has been buying its way into the microbrews market since twenty eleven bud. Light maker Anheuser-Busch has been on a buying spree acquiring. At least ten brewers from coast to coast. Today, the king of beers is the country's largest craft brewer believe it or not for the owner. Her of Sam Adams that kind of competition calls for innovation and dogfish. Head's Cal Joni has a reputation for quirky creativity. He started dogfish years ago, making beer out of overripe cherries in a homemade still in his dorm room. He's out on a limb enough that a two thousand eight New Yorker profile of him featured, a photo of the entrepreneur, apparently naked sitting in a beer barrel. Plastered with mash, the picture suggests who knows exactly what he'll come up with next that out of the barrel. Thinking is just what Boston beers cook is making a bet on he wants called Cal Joni. Fearless as Boston beer faces competition from above Anheuser Busch. And from below bows. Crappier makers a little fearlessness could go a long way.

One year into legal U.S. sports betting: What have we learned?

"Sports gambling continues at slow and now legal spread across the country. After the supreme court ended some limits last year gambling companies are taking and plenty of cash, but how should they be allowed to advertise? Their services in the world in which children have screams in front of them. Everywhere. They go reporting on this and the Washington Post Matt bone steel who spoke with komo's Tom hutler. You write that the American gaming association wants to get out in front of this possible advertising. Snafu what are they proposing here? Released today which is the one year anniversary. Of course decision to legalize sports gambling released a list of guidelines for casino company is sports gambling companies as to how they should be going about advertising and three main points. Are they should not do anything that would target children? You know, the legal age for gambling twenty one. So there'd be no I mean, I don't know going back twenty years, however, many years when you'll beer companies would have spuds MacKenzie and Joe Camel advertising cigarettes, and that sort of thing none of that. They don't want anything even remotely close to that. The second aspect is. They don't want any advertising in college newspapers, you know, in colleges you have a lot of people who are not of gambling age. And they don't want anything involved with that. And then the third is to sort of. I it was sort of a, but it's sort of like don't go advertising gambling is like a guaranteed way. To make money. I mean, it's really these are basically saying here you can come back with us daycare chances. But it's still a gamble. Still risk. The advertising is is tailored to make it look like it's a pretty advantageous to the gambler. And you use a story out of the United Kingdom as an example already have kind of address this situation there, right? During the World Cup. They found a guardian study found that something like one in six advertisements during the World Cup were about sports gambling in you know, the practices been legal there for much longer than it has been there. And I think there's a sort of thinking that maybe it's gone too far that a lot of those games during the World Cup or going on during the day. And a lot of kids are watching. And they just didn't think that was such a great idea to have that front and center of in front of so many young girls do other industries have an ethics code. But it comes to advertising. Took their cues of from specially from the liquor industry. They talked to people at the place called the beer institute. And they talked to the distilled spirits council about how they go about regulating their advertising and a lot of the things that the wants to do or lifted pretty much straight from them. You know, don't advertise to minors. Don't don't advertise. You know, don't make.

The Key to Understanding Your Competition

"And I wanna paint a scenario for you. So you go to a networking event. Your you come in the room, and you see someone in the room or across the room. That is your direct competitor for us. Maybe it's another agency marketing agency, something like that. But you recognize this person and user do one of two things one you shy away. You gotta stay on a corner. You try to start talking to someone else? Would you basically void that person? For whatever reason you have this kind of feeling of anxiety or oh, they do what we do. And whatever may be or they're here. So that means they're selling people in the room. And that's what we do. And some cases maybe they get the opportunity to where you deuce. Everyone gets to introduce themselves. And of course, when they stand up they say what you do. And then you stand up, and you kind of say well do the same thing as that guy. And I see this all the time. What I would encourage you to do is the other. Use a different tactic. For me. I always want to meet the person that does what I do. Or they say, they do we do go out of your way to go. Meet these people even before you're in that situation. So find out who's in your industry who your competitors are set up meetings with them. Go talk to them at their office coffee meetings things like that now, of course, don't waste time meeting with people that you shouldn't be meeting with. But if you feel it's worthy to meet with this other person, maybe they're above you. Maybe they're a beer company than you. Or maybe they're smaller than you. But for me, it's been a huge. Well, it's been very successful. With the way we've done it. I've met with companies that are larger than me. I wanna know who they are. And maybe they have worked that they can sub to us or that is smaller for them that they don't wanna they own a deal with it. So they they'll say, hey, you guys want this work. So that works great the other way. Hey, we want you know, we have worked that we don't want. Then we can sub it out or refer it to the person that's below us. And so even if you think you do the same thing that's not not always the case either. I just got done meet for coffee with the guy here a new NC in town. They do exactly what they we do on surface. But after sitting down and talking with the sky, they actually don't do the same things we do and they're in a different vertical. Their clientele is much lower level clientele than us. And so I can probably refer him a lot of work. And when there's a bigger deal that comes across his plate. He's willing to refer that to us because it's not in their wheelhouse. It's not something they can support. So by meeting this guy and for him being willing to meet with me. I possibly created a new. Referral partner in. So I've gone out and met with most of the people around here, not have still plenty that I need to meet with a go out of your way. Go meet your competition, you maybe to share stories experiences, and then hopefully possibly be referred to the work. But it's better to know who they are meet with them cut the tension a little bit you're still going to compete. You're still gonna see their proposal on someone else's desk. But that's going to happen. No matter what. So you must will meet these people get to know him, and you might get some work out of it. And then of course, there's always the opportunity of well, we wanna by someone out and they're they're willing to sell or vice versa. You're trying to get out. And now, you know, who the people are out there that may wanna buy you. So there's a ton of benefits to going to beat the competition. So I would urge you to get out there. Don't be shy meet these people, and you could see what options come out of it. Thank you for listening. I'll hope you

What Tech Companies Are Doing About Climate Change

The Big Story

What Tech Companies Are Doing About Climate Change

"As reports about the looming impact of climate change become harder and harder to deny every company on earth is facing tough choices. A rapidly changing ecosystem is the world's biggest disruptor. So nearly every industry regardless of their public stance on climate change or any lobbying. They're doing is planning for an uncertain future. And they are using the same data that so far hasn't seemed to motivate many governments to treat this as an emergency money talks, though. And a new report reveals the ways that various high profile companies are doing their best to mitigate the losses. And of course, to maximize the profits of a world that might be on fire or underwater or both. Is it ethical is it responsible is that ironic that companies are taking action faster than most countries, or is that just inevitable after all they've got shareholders to report to and most governments just have people. So how does a company business plan for prophets amid disaster? And is it really a branding win. If people are using your app to plan their escape route to higher ground. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. We'll look back at this time that we spend debating what it is real. And I think that might have been time we could use talking about how to deal with it and companies are clearly already at that point. Christopher Lavelle is Bloomberg's climate adaptation reporter Christopher that is a fascinating title. It's it's the only thing I cover what does that entail because I actually feel like I feel like we should start the interview here now because that's a fascinating job description to me, it it is so in the realm of climate change most of the journalists on the climate beat ten to write broadly. Speaking about emissions, which is transportation, it's energy. It's international accords. Everything has to do with human activity that causes more greenhouse gases to answer the atmosphere. I've got sort of a different part of the beat which is. What happens to businesses governments people Connie's buildings infrastructure as a result of those emissions? What's the what's the effect? And then as the name suggests how do we adapt to that? What do we change? What are we not change? How do we try to prepare for what climate change means in sort of tangible human terms, so a number of high profile companies from around the world, but you focused on the ones in America have kind of had to quantify the impact of this will have to their business. How do they have to look at climate change with regards to their bottom line? Yes. The survey data and the reports I looked at focused on two different impacts of climate change on big companies. The I was where the risks they face risks to their operations risks to their customers risks to their supply chain. How would hurt them in other words and to my surprise these company? Has tended to be pretty candid about this of variety of impacts that they expect whether that is Coca Cola saying that they might face water shortages at their bottling plants around the world. Data companies tech companies saying that their data centers might be harder to heat harder, cool because of water and electricity and then companies with sprawling supply chains. The modern company tends to have opperations all over the place and to get inputs from all over the place. And I think rightly most these companies said we're worried about the increase in extreme weather and sea level rise. And what that will mean for our ability to keep getting all the components. We need for business from around the world. The me was on what what's fasten? But this is the sort of variety of effects banks in America saying that they're worried that some portion of their mortgage portfolio could default as homeowners either go underwater or probably more more concerning just stop carrying flood insurance. And then go underwater, so this is sort of an interesting way into how companies group of entities with a lot of money in the line CD's risk. Six and what really jumps out at you is there's no debate in the corporate world about whether this is real there's no debate about whether it's going to happen soon. It's happening. The only debate is the specific impacts be and how bad in addition to the risks these companies see from climate change. They went into even more impressive candor about what they see the opportunities. So mostly companies that file these reports listed override of ways in which they think that the effects of climate change could produce more revenue them whether that is more demand for existing products or finding new products to sell so some sort of some examples that I think fit that you had drug companies saying that as diseases that are currently mostly confined to the tropics spread to developed countries. That'd be more demand for malaria treatments, other kinds of troppled disease treatments. You had banks saying that as we get more and more disasters the morning to finance rebuilding. And and they'll be around to take advantage of that you had Google saying that there'll be more demand for some of its Google earth engine products as people want to better witness what's happening to the world. To me that it's a branding. It could be construed as a branding win. Yeah. And you know, I think I tried in the peace to avoid attaching any kind of, you know, ethical or moral lens to this. I I don't I don't think there's any reason to assume that there's anything untoward about this. If anything as a journalist, I tend to take the view that transparency all those people is is best. And so again, I'm impressed by how willing companies word to discuss in in terms that weren't always obviously cloaked in PR type language, but we're rather speaking directly, I think to investors saying this is what we're looking at in terms of more sales. I also try to stay away from predictions. But I think the following prediction is pretty safe. I think five years from now ten years now, we'll look back at all this time that we spend debating whether this is real and think that might have been time we could use talking about how to deal with it and companies are. Clearly already at that point. Right there already saying how do we adjust? How do we protect ourselves where we can how do we move up rations it? I mean, it's it's hard to avoid drawing the analogy with governments it it's a level of of frankness that you don't often see from governments especially United States when it comes to dealing with climate change rather than sort of p skating or arguing about whether it's happening. How do these companies and you talk to some of them game out these scenarios do they have a team that's kind of projecting various different things. And then they're adjusting with each one or they going with a certain type of research or they just speaking in more general terms. So I think I think most big companies have fairly sophisticated risk management operations in general and often that's the part of the company that will deal with climate risk. Even beer companies will have specific teams of whether it's meteorologists or climate. Logistics or just general scientists looking at the stuff there is an amazingly well-developed ecosystem at least in the US, I've companies that specialize in predicting climate risk in specific areas and disaster types and the economy, so there's a there's no shortage of places to get this data. And I think what we're seeing what surprising here is that the companies are using it. Right. And if you are so inclined as a company, or is it government to find out what's likely to happen in a given area this year next year five years now that trend data those predictions those are out there. Right. So I think one thing you here in the US is why why worry about climate change? We don't even know what's going to happen. This argument that we don't know what's going to happen true on its face. But true for every prediction what we certainly know is what the trends are. And what we're seeing with these companies is they're not waiting for some elusive degree of certainty to start planning for this their content. To make plans based on the imperfect information that we have and make what seemed to be pretty specific plans based on that. Are we starting to see already that there will be maybe not even specific companies but specific industries who will be sort of the winners and losers as this continues to progress. So there's different views on that. Certainly agriculture is a sector that you hawk and here is going to see a lot of action on this. Whether it's good or bad. We don't know big affects on agriculture, but also lots of room to innovate for companies that are forward looking banking certainly will be affected because the companies that banks lend money to could could be in trouble real estate, at least in the US. I think there's no university in which climate change doesn't have a huge impact on real estate. We don't really know if on balance it'll be positive or negative the insurance industry will be almost uniquely exposed to the effects of climate change. What we don't know about insurance is how well they'll be with that risk. Certainly there have been disastrous in the past Hurricane Andrew in Florida. And I think ninety two great example that really caused the insurance industry to stay or, but I think insurers are pretty alert what's going on. And I my sense that they'll find a way to price that risk into their policies. So it's not clear at this point. If there's any particular injury that would just collapse because of climate change, I think in most industries as with most companies, it's a mix of pretty severe risk. But also -tunities I don't get a sense from my reporting that there's any particular sense of panic in anyone sector, but I do get the sense that there's a sense of a mood of uncertainty and and concern, but also, you know, the the attempt to think how can we get ready for this? How many of these companies are acting right now on these assessments and actually changing the way they? Do business today. So that's that's the great complaint that you hear from environmentalists or groups that focus on climate risk based say that there's an element of PR here that for all the candor with which companies talk about this stuff. It's often not clear just what they're doing to prepare for it to actually change their operations it. It's always gonna be anecdotal. I get the sense that companies changing their behavior are still the exception that in general, there's a lot of sort of preparing and modeling and thinking about what to do. But not a lot of significant changes yet. Now, it's not that's the wrong way to go. If you're a company, you could say, look, we we're not going to change our business model until we have to. But what we're doing to be responsible is to be prepared for the moment when we have to whether that's a particular big storm, or you know, really serious effect on there. But yeah. Definitely the the skeptics take on all of this is that for all their planning and their discussion. They still aren't really ready for the next superstorm. And I think that's certainly a fair concern. But the kind of concern that you can't really test until something big happens should ordinary people be looking to model their behavior after what some of these companies are doing like, should we be looking at our investments with an eye to how the various places we've got money invested are going to be impacted. I think definitely anybody who's got funds that are actively managed should talk to whoever's manuals fun. Just just say what's your approach here? I mean, the problem with that is if you're just a typical investor it's not clear how much better you can do it planning for this. Then whoever is running your money. But I think certainly making sure that your portfolio manager is thinking about it is the first step, but I'm not commit. Anybody in the world of finance who really has a good idea of how to deal with these threats and take advantage of them. But again that baseline question of are you thinking about it is probably the one to be asking at this point as you're doing your reporting. Is there any area where you think we're adapting well to this not necessarily just in business. But in terms of of all the areas, you look at, you know, the the optimist in me would like to say, yes. Oh blind. I'm afraid I'm afraid that. You know, the the sweep of change attached with global warming is so significant that I think it might be a little bit too early to say which things were doing. Well, I I don't think we've even got our heads around which areas will require the most adaptation, let to ask me how to do it certainly in the US. There's parts of the country that are most exposed to flooding and storms and little rise. Louisiana is the best example, they're sort of they're already looking at ways to discourage people from remaining or building by coastlines that are going under water and how to relocate those who want help those are really hard discussions. And I think other parts of the country will be there eventually. So I think at this point success is probably best defined as confronting the problem. But in terms of finding solutions that work. It doesn't seem like we're there yet. I

With Americans Drinking Less, Booze Makers Seek Alternatives

"Jennifer, I think some Americans might be skeptical about some of the numbers here, but they are showing a decline, especially when it comes to beer one and spirits were picking up for a while. But sales growth there has slowed to. So how serious is the situation in the US for brewers liquor companies? They're definitely taking steps to address this trend. Actually, there's very few trends in these numbers. But overall new data show that US alcohol volumes fell zero point percent last year and that steeper than zero point seven percent. Decline in twenty seventeen and unpacking that a bit beer was the worst hit beer volumes were down one point five percent in two thousand eighteen compared with a one point one percent decline in two thousand seventeen so brewers are taking this very seriously and taking a vase of. Maneuvers as it were. So what's happening here? The Wall Street Journal has been covering shifts in consumer tastes for food and drinks for Weil. What is going on when it comes to alcohol consumption? There are few things going on. I a lot of folks are drinking less, but better that means that they are trading up to maybe a pricier option. Let's say they're drinking a couple of craft beers instead of a six pack of, but there's also a trend away from beer toward one and spirits. And then overall people are drinking less alcohol that means that there is sort of a health and wellness a trend at foot. It also just means that people are especially younger millennials. But I think it actually does play cross several generations. They're looking at what they're putting in their bodies are being more selective about it looking at ingredients. And that means that overall they might be consuming sort of less of a volume and maybe a few. Pricier maybe more natural ingredient sort of focused beverages. Are we seeing the same trends overseas? Or is this more play in the United States? It's definitely happening in other markets. Although in the US, it's perhaps more pronounced the health and wellness trend. We're seeing across the board and the premiums -ation trend. Also in developed markets is quite common. Now, it's been playing for a few years and a lot of alcohol companies with their spirits or beer brewers have been coming out with higher end products. You know, this shift from American loggers toward craft beers. And the same is true. If you look at vodka or tequila or whiskey on and on and on the big companies are positioning their brands and developing new brands to sort of play into where consumers are headed. What else are beer and wine makers doing to stay ahead of the trends? Here will turn it was are they looking at so because in some. Cases, people are just drinking less. There are a number of beer and spirits companies. That are rolling out low end, no alcohol products. You got a bunch of zero point zero beers. That are either available here or will be soon. You've got you know, anti-bush imbed the world's largest brewer saying that their new quote beyond beer. I unit is a big focus of theirs in they're acquiring an energy drink company, and they're bottling ice tea. They're launching a seltzer. You've also got beer companies that are branching way. Beyond beer. They're cooking up coconut water, come boo. Shop much T. So we see a lot of branching out and a lot of experiments in areas where consumers have shown interest in whether it's the health and wellness space just sort of lower alcohol space and also something we've been reporting on a lot late. Brewers seem to be investing more in cannabis infused drinks, partnering up with startups and producers, for example, pets right so cannabis is I think one of the most interesting developments in the beverage industry of late and big beer companies in the US are either thinking about it or talking about it or investing in cannabis the biggest deal so far has been constellation brands, which is company that imports corona and Modell in the US and they invested four billion dollars last year a Canadian cannabis company, and that was followed by a JV announced by most in cores. They're developing cannabis beverages and ABM Bev is now researching cannabis beverages all of these sort of in partnership with different Canadian companies, but the idea is that consumers are going to have new options as these cannabis markets opened up in Canada and potentially in the US and other.

Addiction is insidious and we have no idea how to stop it

"Addiction. Is insidious. And it really is. And we have no clue in this country. No clue how pervasive. It is how it's taking over lives in destroying lives and families. It's always been a family problem. But now with the opioid crisis. And and let's not forget that when I was in my early days, Tom, I was an alcoholism counselor. I can't tell you how many years ago, but it was like another lifetime ago and. It was a slogan. That was out there and it used to in it went there were a couple of them. But one of them was friends. Don't let other friends drink and drive. And it was two beer mugs. Clink clinking. And they broke he was phenomenal. It was so powerful and poignant, and it didn't stay on the air very long because the beer companies had a play in that as you know. And I know it it's it's always about the money. And it's it's a lot about the money. And so I want people to know, whatever your addiction is. There's hope and there's help. And and let's begin by telling everyone your your own personal story. My story Frankie is again. Thank you for having me on. I'm so excited to share my own journey and the journey of other people who have had that similar similar experience with you and your audience. My personal story is there is a diction on both sides of my family tree when I was an in patient treatment facility. I did a family tree. And I tried to identify members of my family who had either admitted or obvious. Not admitted issues alcohol or other substances, and it was on both sides. And there was a number of people throughout my adult life. I was a highly functional highly successful attorney in New York City, and I also worked at various times in government for various high level politicians, but I was always a big drinker, and you know, in the political world, it's called cultural thing, here's a lot of drinking that goes along with that, you know, and then a bunch of different things happened back in two thousand ten high was let go from very high level government job. And then there were number of accidents and injuries and illnesses and family members. I am very close personal friends. And so my drinking got really pretty bad to try and cope with that. And then with all the demand placed on me. I started relying on cocaine to be able to keep up with by law practice, and all the other things are taking family members to medical appointments, and it just got crazy. And you know, it was a silly way. Silly coping mechanism to us at the time. But it seemed it worked until it stopped working, and I wound up in in rehab and inpatient rehab setting. I had been once before because I realized my drinking. This was before the drugs really became an issue. I had gone to outpatient treatment to try and deal with my drinking. You know, and it was somewhat successful. But it didn't last and in the long term, and when I wound up going back to drinking and the drugs got mixed. And if it came a nightmare, so that's my personal story. What was it that made you realize that you had to stop the merry go round and get off it? Well, you know, the problem is I was forty four when I got finally got sober. And quite frankly, I think I started to feel around age forty that this the lifestyle that had worked so well in my late twenties and thirties and being able to drink a lot of alcohol at events, you know, get very little sleep not really focused on my nutrition. I really started to feel like I was hurting hit about forty and then forty four win forty three and forty four when things really got difficult. I mean, I couldn't walk a city. I was smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. I couldn't really walk a city block here in New York without wheezing. I feel my liver. I mean, it was really bad. And then I I actually have started to it'd be very open, and honest, I think it helps people maybe they hear this. And they're struggling I get emotional when I talk about it, you know, but I would walk around and not want to have to go to the bathroom to do the cocaine. You know, put it on my lips. So my my lips were actually leaking. And you know, I would say it was just a mess. And I just felt like I recognized very clearly that if I didn't take. My recovery or call it abstinence from both substances and start to really focus on my body. It's needs and my health that there was gonna be really serious consequences coming my way and a very very short period of time.
