Event season is ON!  What with this year's CBC and SAVOR, having recently taken place - and everything going on overseas - brewers are pretty busy getting out and about.

Still, when you take a trip to Maui you have to reach out and at least TRY to talk to him, right?

We first met Logan Plant some years back when he was still with the UK-based band Sons of Albion when they were touring the states in support of their first US release. And even though that band was making some great music together at that time - nothing would ever have prepared us for Plant's next act as the founder of Beavertown Brewery - one of London's most exciting and innovative craft breweries!

As busy as he is managing Beavertown's incredible growth, Logan graciously agreed to give us his time. And we repaid that kindness by asking him...5 STUPID QUESTIONS.
