Since our last chat, Plan Bee has moved from a 1 BBL brew system in a small shed to a 10 BBL brewhouse on a farmstead in Poughkeepsie, NY, and Evan and his wife Emily have begun to cultivate the land which some day in the future will supply most if not all of the ingredients used in Plan Bee's fantastic beers. This was a conversation we were dying to have, to see the progress on the farm, talk a little less about the basics of Plan Bee (see prior interview), and to really get into what it means to be a farm brewery. The result - an honest and raw conversation. A discussion about the struggles of such a grand undertaking, a real look at the life behind the shiny exterior of this craft beer boom, and most importantly, complete candor. Plan Bee is and will always be one of our favorites, not only because of the quality of the product but for the ideas the couple stand for. The back to basics and "life's priorities" driven mentality that guides their business decisions. The fact that Evan prides himself on handing each bottle of his beer to the consumer just one example of what makes this brewery so special. We hope you enjoy our conversation and take the time to learn more about Plan Bee and the Watsons.
