Product description

Entrepreneurial dreams do come true! Starting with nothing more than a home brewing kit, Sam Calagione founded Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and made it America's fastest growing independent beer. This unconventional business story reveals how Calagione found success by dreaming big, working hard, and thinking differently - and how you can do it too. 'Rarely is a book as good as a beer but this one is. It's written with humor, humility, and passion, essential ingredients for any entrepreneur' - Bob Guccione Jr. founder of "Spin" magazine and "Gear" magazine.'"Brewing Up a Business" will inspire both entrepreneurs and aspiring small business people to have the confidence in following their dreams' - Jim Davis Chairman and CEO of New Balance. "Sam Calagione embodies the spirit of a true Delaware entrepreneur. Starting out as the smallest brewery in the nation, Sam's ambition, acute business sense, and vision have allowed Dogfish Head Craft Brewery to successfully enter an extremely competitive market as Dogfish Head continues to leave an indelible mark on the beer industry' - Ruth Ann Minner, Governor of Delaware. 'Everything you want to know about succeeding in business you can learn from beer. At least you can if it's the remarkable story of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. "Brewing Up a Business" is like a 'how-to' manual for entrepreneurs. With humor, creativity, and wisdom, Sam Calagione has crafted a new kind of business book that's as unique as his great beer!' - Joe Calloway author of "Becoming a Category of One and Indispensable".
