In episode six of the Brewbound Podcast, editor Chris Furnari and Dogfish Head co-founder Sam Calagione discuss how the Delaware craft brewery is “navigating the noise” of 7,000 small breweries, how other craft breweries can grow without taking on too much debt, and how Dogfish Head has financed its own expansion in recent years.

Throughout the conversation, conducted during Dogfish Head’s annual distributor meeting, held in Baltimore last month, Calagione explains the benefits of remaining a small, taproom-focused brewery in today’s competitive marketplace, why he is bullish on the Brewers Association’s independent craft brewer seal, and how he envisions the marketplace evolving in the coming years.

Also in this episode: Furnari and Brewbound assistant editor Justin Kendall share the latest news and run down segments.
