August 23, 2011 | About:

Pimm Fox, of Bloomberg Television's "Taking Stock," recently interviewed Jim Koch, founder and chairman of Boston Beer Company (NYSE:SAM), the largest American-owned brewery, and Jim Woods, founder and chairman of MateVeza. In it they discussed:

  • - the early days of SAM, their success, and market share

  • - the industry in the last 27 years

  • - what drives a craft brewer

  • - Jim's mission to create a brewing revolution in the U. S.

  • - ingredient costs

  • - and "Brewing the American Dream," a micro-lending program started by Jim to provide capital to entrepreneurs in the food, beverage, and hospitality industries
