First America, now the world?

Having enjoyed stratospheric growth in the New World, are U.S. craft brews set to take on the (insular, dismissive, lucrative) European beer market? Stone Brewing is betting so:

But Greg Koch, co-owner of Stone Brewing, wants to change that. Based in Escondido, California, Stone just closed its request for proposal (PDF) to construct a brewing facility in Europe. If it works out, in a few years Stone will be the first American craft brewery to make its product outside the United States.

  1. so bizarre to see Escondido, California in a post! I grew up 10 miles from there. Escondido is home of the ugly strip mall…It’s the sadder San Diego county cousin of Jefferson City. Who knew they housed world class beer?
