Adam Smith (Maplewood Brewery) Over Beer
We've been fortunate enough to spend some quality time with very accomplished and skilled professionals from the craft beer industry lately. One of the benefits of this podcast has been catching a first-hand glimpse of the true character of the people behind the creation of our favorite beers, breweries, and their branding and marketing. The biggest takeaway from these interviews has time and again been the friendly and warm nature of the people within the craft beer industry, and Adam Smith is no different. Over Beer, Adam (Brewer and Brand Manager at Maplewood Brewery & Distillery) sat down with Matt and I to talk about Maplewood, their beer, the challenges and benefits of being the only brewery and distillery in Chicago, what they plan to do with their taproom, and much more.
