In the second episode of the Brewbound Podcast, Carey Falcone, the co-founder of New Realm Brewing, joins Brewbound editor Chris Furnari in a discussion about his long career in the beer business and the launch of the Atlanta-based beer company.
Throughout the conversation, Falcone talks about his experience as a first-time entrepreneur, New Realm’s core values, the eight-year planning process to get the brewery off the ground, and how he convinced former Stone Brewing Company brewmaster Mitch Steele to move across the country to join a startup in the South.
Falcone also discusses the impact that recently enacted direct-sales laws in Georgia have had on New Realm’s business, the decision to purchase a distressed brewing facility in Virginia ahead of the company’s original expansion plans, and how he envisions the craft beer category evolving over the next decade.
