We often say that our readers are the lifeblood of this site. You give us your time, your feedback and your expertise, which frequently outstrips our own. So when we lined up a (typed) interview with Sam Calagione, we figured we owe you guys and gals the chance to chime in with your questions for him. So that’s just what we’re doing.
Sam has agreed to answer a few questions for us via email. Don and I wanted to Skype with him so we could have more of a rap session, but he declined. I don’t blame him – we don’t really know each other and he has no reason to trust us. For all he knows we’d ambush him with a bunch of uncomfortable questions about the whole Brew Masters thing (which we wouldn’t do, Scout’s Honor!). Anyway, either that’s the reason, or he’s totally swamped running the brewery, or he can’t stand the sound of Don’s voice, which I totally understand. 🙂
At any rate, we’re excited to share this opportunity with you folks. Let us know in the comments below what questions you have for Sam and we’ll pick a couple and pass them along.
While there are no rules or real guidelines here, I’m hoping to use this opportunity to get to know they guy himself more than the logistics of distributing beer to different states or the intricacies of brewing ancient beers. Or why there’s no Dogfish Head in Idaho (ahem).
But that’s me. What do you want to know?
