Radio Brews News Live: Kim Jordan


In this special Brews News Live, recorded at BrewCon 2018, Matt Kirkegaard chats with New Belgium co-founder Kim Jordan

Since it’s beginnings 1991, Kim has been instrumental in developing a business and a culture that has driven one of the most respected craft breweries in America.

This chat covers New Belgium’s early days, whether a business could start the same way today and still grow to the scale that New Belgium has achieved, notions of craft and also her views on the move to brand independence in Australia.

It’s a great conversation with someone who thinks very deeply about beer.
