The Pivot

026 - Carl Meier

March 26, 2018

Carl Meier left his VP position at a national bank to start his own brewery, Nashville's Black Abbey Brewery. This was a fun conversation with a super smart dude. We learn about Carl's transition from finance, to diaper champ, to running the most successful new brewery in Music City.

We also learn A LOT about Martin Luther, beer-making nuns, and why making Belgian beer was at the heart of the reformation. We also learn a little about Mutt Lange and why Def Leppard, Shania Twain and Bryan Adams all kind of sound exactly the same.

What a fun conversation.
