A condensed version of BA Quality Ambassador Dick Cantwell’s inspiring presentation, The Future of Craft Depends on Quality, is now available. The video includes highlights of presentation and an exclusive interview recorded during the 2016 New England Craft Brew Summit.
As an extension of the BA Quality Subcommittee’s vision, Dick encourages craft brewers to continue to collaborate and collectively maintain and defend the reputation of craft beer. He also provides useful guidance on developing an affordable quality program and outlines the responsibilities of a member of the craft beer community. From basic laboratory techniques to regulations recently adopted by the FDA, this video will help guide and encourage breweries of all sizes to continuously improve their operations and make the best beer possible.
Dick Cantwell is one craft beer’s leading voices. He authored The Brewers Association’s Guide to Starting Your Own Brewery, and just penned Wood & Beer: A Brewer’s Guide with Peter Bouckaert. As head brewer and president of Elysian Brewing Company, Dick led one of the most innovative and influential breweries in the country for nearly 20 years. Quality has always been central to Dick’s approach to brewing, evidenced by Elysian winning Large Brewpub of the Year at the GABF® in 1999, 2003 and 2004!
