The brewing industry has gone through a boom in recent years. The pandemic was the first domino to fall in a series of business battles: supply chain issues making ingredients and equipment more expensive and hard to find; wildfires and smoke damaging hop crops in the Pacific Northwest; and one labor shortage it encourages us all to hold our favorite beer strainers very close.

“I don’t think there is another industry where owners are so willing to collaborate and help each other. It’s so great to see that I could talk to someone I’ve never met, but I know it’s a brewery owner, and we could start talking and sharing ideas and no one tries to keep secrets.
