In several new chapters, he discusses Dogfish's most innovative marketing ideas, including how social media has become an integral part of the business model and how other small businesses can use it to catch up with bigger competitors. Calagione also presents a compelling argument for choosing to keep his business small and artisanal, despite growing demand for his products.

User reviews about this book

  • Excellent Read for Brewers and/or Business people

    By straightouttatheshire
    This book is entertaining and enlightening at the same time. Sam goes to great lengths to convey his passion for beer and relate that to the steps he's taken to make his dream a reality. It's important to note that the book, while heavily themed around the beer world, is an outstanding example of 'how to do business and stay true to what you love' no matter your area of expertise. Very impressed with this guy's writing, as well as his work ethic, and most of all what he's done with Dogfish Head. As a homebrewer and businessman myself, I consider Sam an inspiration and his book has a very special place in my library of favorites.
