Ken Grossman has Sierra Nevada, and he intends to leave it to his son and daughter. Some brewers want to follow the German tradition of breweries that are run by the family for generations.

Yuengling did pretty well with that route.  Totally family owned since 1829...and more successful than ever, and looks like his daughters are poised to take over when the time comes.

I could not have groan my business to where it is now without a loan.

Was it really that painful?   ;)

Actually Yes, it was pretty painful. But worth it. ;)
