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.
