Oral history interview with Jon and Carrieann Schneider (2022)

Our biggest mission is tying the agricultural aspects of beer making, to drinking, enjoying it.

Jon and Carrieann Schneider opened Sideways Farm and Brewery in Etowah, NC in August 2018. In this interview, they discuss the connection between the farm and the brewery, the importance of terroir and place in their beer, their system for bottle conditioning their beers, the importance of beer education in their service model, and the evolution of the brewery since its opening.
