Our Hosts:

Sean Monahan is Chief Operating Officer at Sapporo-Stone Brewing.  He is a global operations leader with 25+ years of industry and management consulting experience specializing in operations (plan, source, make, deliver) strategy and execution across consumer products and retail sectors. His passion for independent craft beer and operations is balanced with his passion for fly fishing from small Catskill streams to the Bahamas.  

Brad Maki is Company Store Manager at Stone Brewing - Richmond, responsible for day to day operations of the Stone retail space and tasting room.  Other duties include tracking and analyzing sales data, inventory control, scheduling, social media, financial accountability, vendor relations, shipping/receiving, and coaching/development of crew members.  He works alongside his crew to create a wonderful experience for both new customers and longtime fans through beer knowledge and passion for the industry.

Stone Brewing:

Stone Brewing was founded in San Diego County, California in 1997 by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner. Unsatisfied with how difficult it was to find great beer at the time, Greg and Steve set out to give beer lovers more choices by brewing bold, innovative beers of the absolute highest quality. In the 25+ years they led the company, they helped grow Stone from a micro-brewery in a small warehouse to a leader of the craft beer revolution around the globe. Throughout Stone’s history, we’ve embraced a few key values that guide our every decision: creative risk taking, revolutionary spirit, and commitment to craft, community, and sustainability.

In 2022, Stone joined forces with Sapporo, Japan’s oldest brewery. This east-meets-west partnership ushered in a new era for Stone. Both production breweries in Escondido, CA and Richmond, VA experienced immediate expansion to begin brewing Sapporo beers alongside Stone beers. While the Sapporo partnership allowed Stone to expand its facilities, team and scope, the legacy and core values of Stone Brewing continue to grow and flourish.
