Linden Street Brewery http://kalw.org en Microeconomics through the eyes of a microbrewer http://kalw.org/post/microeconomics-through-eyes-microbrewer <p>At Linden Street Brewery in West Oakland, a red lager is fermenting inside a shiny kettle that looks sort of like a giant, silver crayon on its head. Nearby, co-owner Adam Lamoreaux surveys a drum-shaped cauldron in need of some scrubbing.</p><p>“Brewing is a whole lot more cleaning than actually making beer,” says Lamoreaux.</p><p>Lamoreaux, 38, is a mellow former Navy engineer with a shaved head and a Rasputin beard dangling over his collar. His wife hates it, but the beard's a charm, safe from the razor until the day Linden Street Brewery, which opened in 2009, stops growing.</p> Thu, 27 Sep 2012 00:01:13 +0000 Charlie Mintz 17239 at http://kalw.org Microeconomics through the eyes of a microbrewer
