“I don’t understand the details of this deal but I’m going to comment anyways.”
The excitement has worn off for many on the Stone Brewing coming to Richmond deal. Confusion on what the city is paying for, whether it’s a sound investment and more are on the minds of many.
Richmond BizSense.com sits down with the founder and CEO of Stone Brewing, Greg Koch and asks about the deal and other facets of the move to Richmond. Greg Koch doesn’t hold back in the interview.
One thing that a lot of critics have very clearly said is, “I don’t understand the details of this deal but I’m going to comment anyways.” The city is not bankrolling this project. That’s just an odd way to describe it when you look at it. What the city is doing is they are investing in their own property. They are creating something that is fit for a tenant – us – to come and occupy and pay them rent on.
