Episode Info:

On this episode of the Beer Edge podcast, we speak with New Glarus Brewing Company co-founder Deb Carey about how when and where breweries should use their voices, about being true to herself, and the politics of the COVID-19 pandemic. New Glarus has long been a model brewery that many others seek to emulate. One of the largest craft breweries in the country, New Glarus hails from a small town but casts a big shadow over the American beer scene. All this while only distributing its excellent line of beers in a single state, its home of Wisconsin. Recently, Deb took to Facebook to promote public safety and talk about buying masks for health care workers. In the wake of her post, which contained a choice word or two for those protesting stay at home measures, Deb was the recipient of a torrent of attacks across social media platforms. Firm in her convictions, Deb stood her ground and talks with John Holl about the experience and how the brewery has handled the pandemic.
