Adam and Richard sit down with Favio Garcia, Partner and Director of Brewery Operations at Dynasty Brewing Company, in Loudoun County.
As one of the “Godfathers of DMV Brewing” Favio worked at various breweries in the DC area before opening Dynasty Brewing Company. When he got his start in the brewing industry many years ago, it was still referred to has micro-brewing. At that time, beer was not allowed to be sold directly to customers within the breweries; the only revenue that could be made was during beer tours.
