In episode 13 of the Brewbound Podcast, Dan Kopman, the co-founder of The Saint Louis Brewery, discusses his experience launching and building Schlafly Beer in the early days of craft beer, the amount of change that’s occurred in the industry since the early 1990s – and the impact that’s had on the three-tier system -- and he also shares lessons for other beer entrepreneurs.

Also in this episode: Brewbound editor Chris Furnari shares the latest news items, including information about a new hard seltzer product from Oskar Blues, an update on the Pabst-MillerCoors contract brewing lawsuit, and details about Boston-area craft brewery Trillium Brewing, whose labor practices and brewing methods are under scrutiny after accusations were lodged by a self-described former employee in an online beer forum.
