It's Figureoutable: John Lord & Alma Aguilar of Cerveceria Crazy Moon, Part 1
In this episode, CoupleCo leaves the country for the moon—specifically, the Crazy Moon brewery in Cholula Puebla, Mexico. This business is run by an old, Connecticut friend of Blaine’s and his Mexican wife. John and Alma are serial entrepreneurs who started this craft brewery in time for a global pandemic—which they have survived as they enter into a new funding series for taking their brewery to the next level. They make excellent beer. They confronted the challenges of the pandemic by keeping everyone on their staff employed and doing the pivots required to keep the revenue coming. They’re raising funding with the ultimate goal of building a newer, bigger brewery and exporting their beer to the US. They’re also great company, and provide excellent insight into the trials and tribulations of running a business together--with the added bonus of cultural duality.
