    Alistair Turnbull - Lobethal Bierhaus

    Alistair Turnbull - Lobethal Bierhaus

    This week we meet Alistair Turnbull from Lobethal Bierhaus.
    This is a fun conversation. As you’ll hear, Alistair gave up a banking career to open a brewery in 2007 - and worried he had already missed the boat when it came to craft beer. Fourteen years later, he says he is working 100 hours a week, humping kegs to local venues around Lobethal and making less money than he did in banking with no plans for a cashed up exit… But as you’ll hear - Alistair couldn’t be happier doing what he’s doing and has a viable and sustainable business and late last year took home three of the top trophies in the Royal Adelaide Beer and Cider Awards, including Champion Beer.
    It’s a great chat about knowing what you want to do in your business and focussing on that, despite what else is going on around you.

    Bonus: Chris Sidwa and Andrew Fineran - Batch Brewing

    Bonus: Chris Sidwa and Andrew Fineran - Batch Brewing

    In this special edition of Beer is a Conversation, we talk about beer money.
    As we recorded this, the Batch Brewing crowd-sourced funding campaign has been open for a day and has exceeded its minimum target, and is halfway to the $1.5 million full raise. Incidentally, it has nearly raised more in a day than BrewDog has in four months.
    While the expression of interest phase has been going for a few weeks, we hadn't covered the raise until now as the company’s financials and valuations hadn’t been available which we considered important to any meaningful discussion of the investment raise.
    Now it’s out, we get to discuss the Batch business and its valuation with Chris Sidwa and Andrew Fineran.
    As you’ll hear it’s a pretty robust discussion, as we talk about the - arguably - inflated valuations that crowdsourced funding permits for businesses and the prospects that they will be able to execute their expansion strategy in a highly competitive marketplace.
    Matt is a big fan of Batch and Andrew and Chris, and respects them even more for being willing to openly discuss some of the important, sometimes challenging questions asked about equity crowdfunding their business.
    Needless to say, none of what follows constitutes investment advice. You should consider seeking independent legal, financial, taxation or other advice to check the information in this podcast - and the offer - and how it relates to your unique circumstances.
