“We started out peddling Brooklyn Lager door to door in 1988 and in retrospect, I cant believe anybody bought anything from us. We were selling at a rice right above Heineken we had no money for marketing, nobody had ever heard of the beer and we couldn’t give anybody credit – we wanted to be paid cash for something nobody ever heard of.” [10:00]
