Falling Rock Taphouse cofounder Chris Black is known for his strong opinions and bombastic style—befitting for one of America’s most influential publicans. In this conversation, Black expounds upon his recent fiery blog post taking to task breweries who expand taprooms and retail locations in ways that blur the lines of the three-tier systems. Host Jamie Bogner plays devil’s advocate in a spirited debate about the increasing direct-to-consumer nature of the beer business and how deeper relationships between brewers and their customers impact the traditional roles that retailers have played in getting great beer to consumers.
