Great story. Even if you're not a big beer fan, it is a great story of entrepreneurship. Wonderful success of turning your dream into an amazing product then an amazing business
Some good history on the Sierra Nevada company and some history on the origins of the craft beer scene. The story isn't particularly captivating, and the writing style isn't the best but it's an enjoyable read if you're into craft beer.
"From Home Brew to World-Class"
This audiobook hits the spot on several levels. As a business success story it leads the reader from the struggle of early days to more heady times of business success. The book is well written and narrated, and would appeal to budding entrepreneurs and anyone with a thirst for craft ale.
