Default Sam Calagione speaks

I just wanted to share this with everyone on here. I did a search to see if it had been posted and didn't find it. It is Sam speaking at Google about his business a little and about beer a lot. Enjoy!

Thanks for the video, it's a nice comprehensive history of some of the things he's said in other speeches and what he says in his books. I still like to hear his stories over again. I really can't stand the DFH Midas Touch beer, but I love that story!

Is he always that douchey? I thought it was just hype for the show. I could only stand watching this for a few minutes before it just boiled into him telling stories about how awesome he thinks he is.

He talks a lot about how innovative and non-traditional he is, but it's not like there weren't IPAs prior to DFH. (BTW - "...continential styles like from England..." um, England is not on the continent, and if you're going to talk about breweries doing English styles, you might want to realize IPAs are also English beers.)

I don't think he's douchey. I think he loves what he does and he believes in himself. There's nothing wrong with that. I can see how it could be taken in the douchey direction, but I don't really feel that way about him.

Yeah, I just think he's excited. He isn't talking about how he invented the IPA or anything, most of the innovative beers he discusses are recipes he invents or styles and recipes he brings from all over the world, making them available to people in retail. I'm not a fan of a lot of DFH beers but I respect the effort he puts into his work and the positive attitude he has about it all.

I've seen this video before. I like Sam and DFH but I'd like to see some more breweries. Unfortunately, since Google bought out youtube they put a ton of ads and the only reason they allowed such a long clip is because Sam went to Google for their employees. Maybe some other breweries will go to Google and give them free beer so they will put up more full brewery videos.

I don't think he is a douche. He always seem positive, I would love to have him for a boss.

Guh?

There are other long clips on youtube that are unrelated to google.
