Nothing goes together like beer and brass and no one has coupled them better than Mr. Dan Gordon. Dan is an accomplished bass trombonist who happens to be the founder and director of brewing operations of the award winning Gordon Biersch brewing company in San Jose, CA. Following the super successful, inaugural bone2pick biz interview with Mr. Ben Baldanza, Hip-Bone Music is honored to feature this brewmeister extraordinaire as our b2p biz artist of the month for November. Shot on location at the state of the art Gordon Biersch brewery in San Jose, Michael sits down with Dan to discuss everything from starting out in the California Youth Symphony, studying brewing in Germany, crafting a mega successful brand, building a multi-million dollar brewery, teaching at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business and most importantly, creating the widely successful (and trademarked) Gordon Biersch Garlic Fries. Pour yourself a cold frosty one and enjoy this enlightening discussion on beer, biz, and building your own personal brand in the music business.
