Publisher's Summary

So You Want to Start a Brewery? is the first-person account of Tony Magee's gut-wrenching challenges and heart-warming successes in founding Lagunitas Brewing Company.
In just 20 years, the company has grown from a seat-of-the-pants, one-man operation to be the fifth largest--and the fastest growing--craft brewer in the United States. This equal part memoir, narrative, and business story is an illuminating yet hilarious account anchored strongly in time and place as a one-of-a-kind, made-in-America journey that culminates with the success of one of the nation's most popular and enduring craft beer brands.

I did not even like beer before I read this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of So You Want to Start a Brewery? to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed this so much! Don't know why I even started this book. I have no interest in starting a brewery or drinking beer. I am a whiskey & Tequila man. Now I am trying different beers, going to craft beer festivals an loving life. This book has a strange way of reaching out and grabbing your interest and attention. My next vacation I want to go to this brewery in CA. Read it , you will love it and appreciate life a little more. It may cure what "ales" you.

What was one of the most memorable moments of So You Want to Start a Brewery??

Page 1 to the End. Undercover beer is great.

What about Brett Barry’s performance did you like?

I am visually impaired so audio is my life. He was GREAT.

If you like their beer, you'll like this book

This book is highly reflective of the beer Lagunitas makes. It's not a conformist and not based on any style. It's a bit rambling but overall enjoyable. Interesting addition to the craft beer writing scene.
