Tomme Arthur talks state of the industry, beer trends, dextrose farmers

The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing are well known to most craft beer fans.  Many of their beers make "White Whale" lists and see fans clamoring for short pours at bottle shares or searching trade forms to land their catch.

Founder and Chief Operating Owner Tomme Arthur discovered craft beer while pursuing an English degree.  By the time he he graduating his mind was set on a career in brewing.  Prior to starting The Lost Abbey he earned several accolades at other breweries including Small Brewpub and Small Brewery of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival along with Small Brewpub and Small Brewery Brewer of the Year.

Arthur talks with us about brewing in those early days and the styles that were popular, comparing beer to music and where we are as an industry.  We discuss the role and importance of terroir in brewing, and how each beer tells a story.  We also sample offerings of his other brands (The Hop Concept and Tiny Bubbles) and discuss why each deserves it's own identity.
