Ryan Lapete had a career as a deep-sea diver before starting his craft brewery. He studied underwater crime scene investigation, lived underwater for a month, and participated in a mission with Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau. His job was dangerous, and after telling his wife he'd leave it behind if he could start a brewery, he founded DEEP Brewing.
Lapete shares how his diving experience helps him in brewing craft beer (quite a bit, actually), how being named 2017's Best New Florida Brewery impacted his business, and he spills the beans on a whole season of coffee beer releases. We also talk about the awesome artwork at his brewery and on his labels, and the difference in alcohol distribution laws in Florida and here in Georgia.
