Episode #1,073 |

Guests: Bob Beauprez, Rhonda Kallman, Rob Pfaffman

We’ve all seen the commercials for the beer that calls itself “The King of Beers”, but only American Entrepreneur Radio has got “The Queen of Beers”.  Rhonda Kallman, the co-founder of The Boston Beer Company (the makers of Samuel Adams) and one of the pioneering female executives in the beer industry, joins “The American Entrepreneur” Ron Morris to tell her story, and to discuss her current venture in the beermaking industry, New Century Brewing. Plus, former Colorado Congressman Bob Beauprez joins Ron to discuss his remarkable story, including his rise to prominence, the circumstances that led to the end of his term, and what he’s up to nowadays.  And Rob Pfaffmann, a Western Pennsylvania architect and the force behind the Reuse the Igloo project, an effort to save Pittsburgh’s Civic Arena from the wrecking ball, talks about the recent unanimous vote by Pittsburgh Sports and Exhibition Authority to tear down the Arena, and how, despite this, the group will continue it’s fight, and what it plans to do next.
