The Tailgate Society
Aaron Wall, a beer dummy, JT Nutt, a beer novice, and Tim Johnson, a beer expert, discuss beer. In this episode, they are joined by Neal Stewart. Neal is the VP of Sales and Marketing at Deschutes Brewery and has an extensive history in the beer industry working with breweries like Pabst to Dogfish Head. He also went to West Virginia for grad school, which raises a few debates surrouding Morgantown and Ames. In addition to very entertaining banter between the four of them, they sample Deschutes' Black Butte Porter, and Neal breaks some news about what's in the works over at Deschutes.
My guest today is Neal Stewart. Neal has run the marketing helm for industry leaders such as Pabst and Dogfish Head Brewing for the past two decades. He is now the Marketing and Sales Director of Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon.
