Local craft beer brewers have long been praised countrywide, and each of San Diego’s last two mayors has made a point to engage the industry.
Thursday, the local industry’s biggest player, Stone Brewing Co., is co-hosting a summit on how to leverage the industry’s reputation to maximize its economic effect, along with the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Former Mayor Jerry Sanders, now CEO of the Chamber, will be there. So will Stone CEO Greg Koch.
Earlier this summer, when we held an event discussing some of the policy limitations facing the industry, I put together a fact sheet on the size and scope of the sector.
