The story of creating IPA Captain’s Daughter, featuring the Co-Founder of Grey Sail, Alan Brinton!

The founder of the brewery that coined the regionally-renowned Captain’s Daughter, Alan Brinton of Grey Sail Brewing joins the show this week! Alan takes us through his journeys as one of the founders of a top-tier Rhode Island brewery, located in Westerly near Misquamicut Beach. Alan and his wife always wanted to start a brewery, but life got in the way - he takes us through the moment they decided to take the plunge in 2011. We dive into the space that Grey Sail is located - a former macaroni factory just miles away from Taylor Swift’s summer home - and explore the “nautical” theme of many of their selections. We discuss the lineup of beers, the story of creating IPA Captain’s Daughter, and the birth of their sister company, South County Distillers.
