Mike Stevens of Founders Brewing on the Craft Beer Industry

In this episode of the Middle Market Growth Conversations podcast, the co-founder and CEO of Founders Brewing, Mike Stevens, spoke with MMG Editor Deborah Cohen about the environment for craft beer and how he has grown his company.

Cohen and Stevens spoke during the Great Lakes ACG Capital Connection, which featured a panel discussion about the craft beer industry that included the Founders CEO.

On the podcast, Stevens reflects on how the industry has changed since Great Lakes, Michigan-based Founders began to take off in 2008, and how the company has been able to maintain its cult following and independence while benefitting from outside capital.
