Mitch Steele’s emotional goodbye to Stone Brewing

Stone Brewing Co’s Brewmaster Mitch Steele announces his pending departure in this thoughtful and emotional video, in which he thanks his team, and shares his pride in leaving the brewhouse to a very capable group of brewers. He’s been captain of Stone’s brewery operations since 2006, and he’s moving on to pursue an unnamed (but teased in the video) venture. Grab a tissue before watching, and perhaps a cold Stone IPA bottle or can too.


Fans of his writing can keep up with him at his blog Hop Tripper, and his book IPA: Brewing Techniques, Recipes and the Evolution of India Pale Ale is a fantastic read.
