For the 75th episode of the Craft Beer Industry podcast, we are joined by the owner/founder of Green Flash Brewing, Mike Hinkley! We start the episode by getting Mike's opinion on the craft beer scene in Pennsylvania and more specifically, Pittsburgh. Then, Mike tells us about his journey from growing up in Brooklyn to his arrival in San Diego via the US Navy, his interest in boxing(!!) as a kid, how his love of craft beer developed, some of the beers that inspired him, and much much more. Next, we talk about the stagnation in the growth of craft beer sales across the board, how he feels that will affect Green Flash and other craft brands, and what you have to do to be successful now in the craft beer business. We finish the show by asking Mike the Five Questions, including another round of Desert Island Beers! There is so much good stuff packed into this episode that I couldn't fit it all in this description. Stop reading and give it a listen!!!
